Distribution Official part of Checkmk

Supported Agents SNMP
This check monitors the state of output units withing printers. It monitors the state provided and also outputs the filling state information provided by the printer.

The printer has to support the generic PRINTER-MIB.

By default the check outputs CRITICAL when either the printer reports 100% units filled or reports a critical error state. A WARNING state is raised when a non-critical error is provided.

According the PRINTER-MIB it's possible that a printer couldn't determine how much is remaining in a supply, so the printer says "at least one remaining".


Name of the printer (if set) otherwise the description, type or index of the printer


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