PRTG: Supervision of a QNAP NAS

Presentation

In this tutorial, I will explain how to supervise a QNAP NAS with PRTG.

PRTG integrates a model for QNAP NAS that allows the automatic creation of the following sensors:

  • QNAP system status
  • Physical disks
  • Logical disks.

Configure the SNMP Agent on the NAS

1. On the NAS web interface, open the control panel and click SNMP 1 .
