Printer monitoring prevents unnecessary interruptions

 

The business letter is supposed to be sent out before the end of the day, the contract must be ready for completion. Error messages that announce the need to replace the printer cartridge usually occur at the most inopportune moment. With PRTG, you are safe from such interruptions. PRTG runs in the background and alerts you in time when toner and paper are running out, or if after a certain total number of printed pages, the acquisition of a new printer should be planned.

Printers should work and not disrupt workflows. Employees should not have to consider whether the printer is ready and whether there is still sufficient toner.

Administrators, however, should not have to constantly check this on-site. With PRTG printer monitoring, administrators know the status of every printer via remote monitoring and, when necessary, will be proactively notified.

With PRTG, everyone can work efficiently.

Printer monitoring
with PRTG

iWhat is a sensor?

In PRTG, “Sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.

PRTG automatically finds all printers across the network, even in distant business locations, and shows you their current status. PRTG can monitor different types of printers using the following sensor:

SNMP Printer

The SNMP Printer sensor monitors various types of printers via SNMP. It can show:

  • Total number of printed pages
  • Fill level of cartridges and toners
  • Status of the printer cover
  • Printer status as sensor message
