The invention relates to a method for monitoring performance of a multi-rotor wind turbine. According to the method parameter for each of the wind turbine modules of the multi-rotor wind turbine is obtained. The parameters of each of the wind turbine modules are compared, e.g. by means of a comparison parameter determined from the individual parameters. Dependent on the result of the comparison, a performance action is initiated, e.g. for the purpose of further characterization or verification of a deviating parameter determined via the comparison.
