Detailed printer error messages
at a glance

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.
7 good reasons
PRTG as your printer-management tool
PRTG automatically finds the printers on the corporate network, even in remote locations. The administrator does not have to do much to set up the printer monitoring.
Toner and cartridges – always well-filled
Printers will always have sufficient toner, and printer cartridges will be filled, for you as the administrator will be informed of necessary replacements in time.
With PRTG, administrators immediately see when there is an error or when a printer is not responding to requests, usually even before the affected employees do.
With the information of the specific error message, you do not depend on the potentially error-prone problem description by staff via phone. Direct and targeted, unadulterated information leads to faster problem solving.
Finding peace of mind
When the previously printed number of pages is approaching the expected lifetime of the device, a replacement can be planned in a timely and controlled manner.
With information about the status of printer toner and cartridges, the replacement of toner and printer cartridges can be organized centrally.
Eliminating sources of error
With information about the status of the printer cover, the source of the error "printer cover not closed" can quickly be eliminated.

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:
Trusted by 300,000 users

Disk Space Monitor: PRTG checks your hard disks and other storage devices and displays all memory capacities on one dashboard. Monitoring of NAS devices of vendors like Synology or Storage Area Networks (SAN) is also possible.
Uptime Monitoring: PRTG checks the uptime of all your servers and ensures smooth running of your services. If any of your monitoring services goes down, you get an instant alarm.
Computer Monitoring: PRTG automatically collects all relevant data of your computers like CPU utilization, operating temperature, or memory usage. Be in control of your network computers and prevent costly outages.
be alerted quickly
PRTG features a variety of memory alerts: E-mail, SMS, Pager, Apps, running an external application, etc. You can specify when and how each person is to be informed. To do so, you can add contacts and edit, delete, or pause your notifications at any time.
The notification system is built into the monitoring software and is available at no extra charge. Because of its integrated quality, configuring the alert feature is done in just a few clicks.
PRTG won't wait to let you know if "your RAM load is on fire." You define your own thresholds. If these are crossed, you'll receive a corresponding notification. This means you can intervene promptly before clients or coworkers are aware of any problems.
