Monitoring NETGEAR ReadyNAS via PRTG

I use Paessler PRTG; to import this file, here's how you do it:

  1. Get Paessler MIB Importer v2 (a free download,
  2. Download the ReadyNAS MIB file (search for SNMP on the ReadyNAS site,
  3. Launch MIB importer and select "Import | MIB File"
  4. Select the MIB file and click "Open". If all is well, it will think for a minute and then say "import successful".
  5. Click File | Save and save the file as "ReadyNAS.oidlib".
  6. Copy the oidlib file to your PRTG server in the folder C:\Program Files\PRTG Network Monitor\snmplibs
  7. Go to your PRTG user interface and right click on the ReadyNAS device. Select "Add Sensor".
  8. In the sensor select screen, choose "SNMP". 
  9. Click "SNMP Library" and select "readynas.oidlib". If the file doesn't show up yet, close and re-open your PRTG user interface and it will re-scan the folder and find your oidlib file.
  10. Click next and select all the monitors you care about.
