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 .
QNAP Control panel

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.
