Hello There,

I am working on PRTG implementation in my office.

I have two questions : - How can I found the MIB file used by "SNMP Printer sensor"? - And, how can I find MIB code, in order to change the notifications?

For exemple, the empty toner alarm or the empty paper tray alarm don't interest me.

Thanks for your help.

Hello FVE,

You can follow this article to create an SNMP Custom Table Sensor to only monitor the cartridge level of your printers. The PRTG Sensor uses OIDs of the Printer-MIB.mib.

Hi FVE,

This MIB is not part of the software, PRTG just uses the OIDs which are defined in the MIB file. There are various web sites on the internet who provide the original MIB file if you search for the name using a search engine of your choice.

Best regards, Felix
