How to monitor the printer page count from a windows 2003 printqueue



How can I create a sensor that keeps track of the page count from a windows 2003 printqueue. I can't use the printers own page counter via SNMP because it would also add the page count from other sources printing to this printer. We are just interested in the amount of pages printed coming from that particular printserver/printqueue.

The included WMI sensor "Windows Print Queue Sensor" gives me the current jobs in queue rather than the accumulated total over a period of time.

Is there such a sensor?
