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.
Supervision of the QNAP NAS
1. Go to the PRTG interface and add a device.
2. Configure the equipment:
2 IP adress
3 Select Automatic sensor creation from specific equipment model (s)
4 Choose the QNAP NAS model
5 Configure SNMP data
6 Click OK
3. Wait during automatic exploration …
4. The sensors are created.
Crawl does not create a ping sensor.
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.
