Hello all,

I'm trying to gather printer data off of my school's network (I am the admin) and I'm looking for a program to help me gather the data. Going through the event logs looking at print jobs is a rather consuming gig for a single network admin. Does anyone know any good Open Source, or less than $60 print monitor programs that work? An added bonus would also let me implement print policies to set limits on amount of printing (read: try to stop people from using the printers as copiers). Thanks

are you using all one brand printers (like hp)?

Do you use Active Directory?

We use AD and all of the printers I want to monitor are IBM infoprint 1552 printers. Print limit, the article you linked, looks good but unfortunately I do not have $1,000 to spend on this.
