I want to calculate how many pages I get from one toner.
The SNMP can monitor Toner Levels, BUT it does not record them! To expand on this, it will show the levels on "live data", but not show the levels on "2 days". This applies to the graph, the tables and historical data.
- Why is this? Why does PRTG get this data, but does not record it? It seems to only record the percentage of time the toner is at 100 (full).
Can this be changed? This would offer two benefits:
- usage can be graphic and "printers per toner" (and therefor cost per page) can be calculated.
- custom limits can be set for each toner, or that limits can be removed.
Of course i want to apply this in PRTG so i can run it against 100 printers. If it was just one that I would do it manually.
