Generic Printer: Remaining Filling Level

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: SNMP

This check monitors the remaining filling level in percent of a printers supplys like toner or fuser. The printer has to support the generic PRINTER-MIB. The default check levels are 20% (warning) and 10% of the full level (critical). According the PRINTER-MIB it's possible that a printer couldn't determine how much is remaining in a supply, so the printer says "some remaining". This value produces a warning.

In case of OKI c5900 devices the name of the supply units ins not unique. One example is Toner Cartridge OKI DATA CORP. In this case the color of the supply unit is added to the beginning of the name to get a unique item name.


The description of the printer


One service is created for each supply unit with a unique name.
