What is Printer monitoring?
Printers having Simple 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.
