Detailed Map



Hi :-)

I have a little question.

I have 3 NAS from Synology with 4 LAN-Ports. Every NAS is connected to 2 different Switches.

On the switch device details, my connections are renamed, p.ex.

Switch 1 Connection to NAS1:1, Connection to NAS1:2 Connection to NAS2:1 Connection to NAS2:2, Connection to NAS3:1 Connection to NAS3:2

Switch 2 Connection to NAS1:3, Connection to NAS1:4 Connection to NAS2:3 Connection to NAS2:4, Connection to NAS3:3 Connection to NAS3:4

Can i create a map with detailed informations (especially the ports) about the 2 Swichtes and 3 NAS?

Best regards

Hi there,

This is possible via the Maps-Feature of PRTG where you have different Map-Objects to display correlations and connections. Please have a look at the following sites that describe the map feature very extensively:

Best regards.
