My Cloud is busy doing something - how do I find out what?

My Cloud has been doing disc access for the past 12 hours - what I do not know. How do I find out what services are running?


If you know how you can check your log file. Maybe someone else can show you how.

As Bill_S indicated you can look at the log file to see what was running. One generally (possibly depending on the My Cloud firmware version) export the log files using the Create and Save System Report option under the Help > Support option. The exported zip file will contain a number of files including log files.

Another way is use SSH and issue a variety of commands, like top, to show running processes. See the following link for more information on commands (note not all may run on the My Cloud firmware) one can run to show various information.

Great - thanks for the help. SSH and showing TOP processes works just fine.
