PRTG: Supervision of a QNAP NAS

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 .

2. Check the box to enable the SNMP 1 service, configure the SNMP version 2 then enter the community name 3 and finish by clicking Apply 4 .

Now that the NAS is set up, we’re going to switch to supervising in PRTG.

Troubleshooting

It is possible on the NAS to have an SNMP Dos detected alert.

To correct the problem, change the polling interval of the SNMP sensors.
