Abstract

This document provides a printer industry standard SNMP MIB for (1) monitoring the status and progress of print jobs (2) obtaining resource requirements before a job is processed, (3) monitoring resource consumption while a job is being processed and (4) collecting resource accounting data after the completion of a job. This MIB is intended to be implemented (1) in a printer or (2) in a server that supports one or more printers. Use of the object set is not limited to printing. However, support for services other than printing is outside the scope of this Job Monitoring MIB. Future

IESG Note

This MIB module uses an unconventional scheme for modeling management

information (on top of the SNMP model) which is unique to this MIB.

The IESG recommends against using this document as an example for the

design of future MIBs.

The "Printer Working Group" industry consortium is not an IETF

working group, and the IETF does not recognize the Printer Working

Group as a standards-setting body. This document is being published

solely to provide information to the Internet community regarding a

MIB that might be deployed in the marketplace. Publication of this

Abstract

This document provides a printer industry standard SNMP MIB for (1)

monitoring the status and progress of print jobs (2) obtaining

resource requirements before a job is processed, (3) monitoring

resource consumption while a job is being processed and (4)

collecting resource accounting data after the completion of a job.

This MIB is intended to be implemented (1) in a printer or (2) in a

server that supports one or more printers. Use of the object set is

not limited to printing. However, support for services other than

printing is outside the scope of this Job Monitoring MIB. Future

extensions to this MIB may include, but are not limited to, fax

machines and scanners.
