This check needs the agent plugin win_printers.ps1 from our plugin directory. After copying to the agent plugin directory, Checkmk will find all connected printers. Then its possible to set WARN and CRIT levels for the number of jobs in the queue. Error and operational states from the print will be automatically detected and displayed.

One service is created for each printer.
