IT Monitoring

printer monitoring

What is Printer monitoring?

Printers having Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) enabled can benefit from standardized SNMP OID and MIB service configuration enabling printer monitoring and performance management independently from brands, model versions or manufacturers.

The market-recognized standard for printer tracking via SNMP is called MIB v.2 Printer and is regulated by RFC 3805. All printer and MFP manufacturers must ensure that their devices are compatible with the SNMP MIB standard.

Printer package monitoring

ServicePilot monitors printer health and supplies usage.

ServicePilot uses SNMP to monitor printer health using SNMP counters.

  • Marker supplies
  • Marker Supply Level
  • Marker Suppply Level Alert
  • Marker Supply Level Remaining

How to install a printer resource?

  1. Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
  2. Add a new printer resource via the web interface (/prmviews or /prmresources) or via API (/prmpackages page), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.

Details of the printer package are located in the /prmpackages page of the software.
