The CAND3001T0 offers several logs that record various aspects of the NAS device.
Various administrative-related events are logged here. Any changes to the the system setup, such as LAN settings, will be recorded along with a time stamp.
System level events are also recorded. Checking the log belies the Linux underpinnings of the CAND3001T0. Here you'll see start-up, restart and shut-down events logged here.
If you enable the NAS device to function as an FTP server, it is useful to be able to see what has been accessed in terms of files and the IP address of where the user(s) logged in from. One different thing about this log is that events are tagged with times based on GMT instead of local time as set up on the system.
Samba is the software that provides file services for Windows clients. Any events are logged here like when you change share permissions, create groups and general account maintenance. The log entries are fairly non-specific though.
If you chose to use the CAND3001T0 as a DHCP server you can see events for the server here.
One thing I did notice is that the unit clears all the logs whenever it is powered off or restarted. I found this by accident when trying to check the FTP logs and found them empty.
That's it for the configuration. Now we need to check out the features and specifications before moving on to the performance testing.
