NAS Synology DS 1812+ prtg setup



I would like to monitor the usage of my DS1812+ using PRTG. I have enabled the SNMP both in the synology control panel and in the prtg machine (e.g. I can perform uptime monitoring using SNMP). However, the error "End of MIB view (SNMP error #224)" always occurs when I try to set up SNMP Synology Disk Physically or Logically. Could you please help me on this matter?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. May I ask, which exact version of PRTG are you using? Also, is it possible to add other SNMP based sensors (like the SNMP Uptime Sensor? Do those then work?

best regards.

I am currently using the PRTG network freeware. I can set up a SNMP uptime sensor for my server. It just wont do with the synology. Any problem with the freeware version?

There should be no issue with the Freeware Version of PRTG with this sensor. Can you please use our SNMP Tester, run it on the PRTG Host, and perform a "SNMP Walk" against the Synology DS1812? Which results do you get in the tester? Please send us the result logfile from the Tester via email to [email protected].

let me explain the current implementation. the prtg is installed in the monitored server is (where the synology is installed). the synology address is

I run the test in snmptester using V1 to Read Device Uptime to It works. It has value. However, It wont do on the synology address.

my question is How to do SNMP Walk on the synology for such implementation?

I'm afraid that's more a configuration issue on the Synology respectively the network (routing, etc.). We can't address this from within PRTG.
