Output Page Validation

Validating page counts using hardware checks (SNMP signals)

PaperCut provides accurate tracking of printer usage by analyzing the printer spool file on the server. Before the job is sent to the printer, PaperCut determines the job attributes including the page count, color/gray-scale, duplex, paper-size, etc. After the job is queued for printing, PaperCut logs this print job information and charges the usage to the user.

This up-front analysis allows PaperCut:

After the job is queued for printing, PaperCut logs this print job information and charges the usage to the user.

If the job is sent to the printer but it does not print completely (e.g. if the user cancels the job at the printer), then print job hardware checks allow PaperCut to determine the actual number of pages printed. These checks are performed at the hardware-level by communicating with the printer via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).

These checks are performed at the hardware-level by communicating with the printer via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).

The combination of up-front spool file analysis and post-job hardware verification of the jobs provides the best of both worlds:

Causes for differences in page counts:

The printer may report a difference to the PaperCut server's spool file analysis for a variety of reasons:

Requirements

PaperCut's hardware check use the SNMP protocol to query the page counters of the printer. This is a network protocol supported by most network printers. To support hardware checks the following is required:

Reviewing hardware check results

Hardware check results are recorded in PaperCut on the print log records. When a hardware check is recorded the Checked status appears in the Status column of the print logs as shown below.

To see the basic details of the hardware check, hover your mouse over the Checked status.

When the hardware check detects a difference, click the Checked status link to see more detailed information.

To manually apply hardware checks to a print job (if this is not configured to apply automatically):

  1. Click on the Checked status.
  2. Review the hardware check information.
  3. Press the Apply Differences button. This will apply the page counts and any cost differences to the print log.
