xSNMP Management Pack for printers

Dec 30, 2010 at 10:35 AM


I have recently been looking for a MP for SNMP enabled printers. 

I have both HP and Dell printers in my organization.  Both of them support the PRINTER-MIB (http://www.snmplink.org/OnLineMIB/Standards/index.html#677).  I suspect that all major printer vendors support this MIB as well.

The monitoring that I am interested in includes:
- Supplies status (pages/percentage left of toner/ink)
- Remaining lifetime of printer parts (Fuser etc)

Is anyone else interested in this?  Are there any other features that would be of interest?

Did you ever make any progress on this, a printer MP for SNMP enabled printers is something that I have been looking for as well with similar requirements

Dell actually offers an SNMP-based Printer Management Pack. Have you had a look at that MP on the Dell website yet?
