The Status page provides an overview of the health of the Q-SYS system, including a list of all devices in the running design and their statuses.
Indicates the status of the redundant Core configuration (if redundancy is enabled in the design).
By default, the System Name matches the Design File name. Click Rename System to assign a friendly name for the location or area being managed by this Q-SYS Core processor – for example, "Conference Room 1".
Note: Once you assign a new name, that name persists even if the Design File name changes. To revert to the default name, click Rename System > Reset to Design File Name.
The design file currently running on the Core.
A date stamp corresponding to the last time the design file was changed on the Core.
This is the Core's hostname, as defined in the Network Settings page. See Network > Basic.
The Q-SYS Core processor model – for example, "Core 510i".
The Q-SYS firmware currently running on the Core.
Note: If you see a Core is running QSC-Signed Firmware notification, it means that the Core is running Q-SYS firmware version 9.1.0 or later. To increase the security and integrity of the Q-SYS Ecosystem, Q-SYS v9.1.0 (and later) implements cryptographic code signing for Core firmware images to ensure their authenticity. Once a Core is updated to version 9.1.0 and later, it will inspect subsequent firmware updates for a digital signature and, by default, will only install firmware that is signed by QSC. This protects the Core against illegitimate and potentially unsafe firmware. Refer to the Utilities > Firmware section to learn about downgrading to version 9.0.1 or lower.
For Q-SYS Core processor models supporting Q-SYS I/O cards, click View to see a list of installed card types.
The Inventory table lists all devices within the running design, and provides an at-a-glance view of their statuses, assigned names, types, Q-SYS model name, and location. Location information is determined from the Location component property in the design.
You can filter the Inventory table by Status, Type, Model, Manufacturer, and location. You can also search for Inventory items using the Search field.
Tip: When selecting filter parameters, the quantity for each parameter is indicated. This can help you quickly determine, for example, the number of devices in a particular status, the number of devices of the same model, and so on.
Click the Columns button to select what Inventory columns to show or hide. You can toggle all columns except for Status and Name.
This status appears during a Core reboot (for example, during a firmware update), or when a design is being pushed to the Core and before it has started running.
The device is functioning normally.
The device is in the process of a firmware or configuration update, or the design is starting. If available, click for more information.
The device is functioning, but a non-fatal problem exists. Click for details about the problem.
The device cannot be discovered. Click for details about the problem.
The device is malfunctioning or is mis-configured. Click for details about the problem.
This status appears when the device is not connected to the network and its Is Required component property is set to 'No'.
This status also appears if the device component's Dynamically Paired property is set to 'Yes', pairing has not been assigned in Core Manager, and the device component's Is Required property is set to 'Yes'. For more information about dynamic pairing, see Dynamic Pairing.
The Type column indicates the category of the device. Q-SYS peripherals and Enterprise Manager-enabled plugins are hard-coded with an assigned category. If your design includes third-party devices that you are monitoring using the Monitoring Proxy component, you can select from any of the following categories, or assign your own. For more information, see the Monitoring Proxy topic in the Q-SYS Designer Help.
