Monitoring for small NAS

New Watches templates for small NAS

These templates will help you to configure monitoring of status of network disk NAS devices by the producers QNAP and Synology. Monitoring of NAS means monitoring of state of the RAID field, state and temperature of disks, function of blowers etc. This gives you immediate view on the status of your device, which allows you to prevent unnecessary failures. In case a problem occurs (e.g. high temperature, or one disk in RAID fails) you'll be informed immediately. The communication runs through SNMP.
