Nagios and Windows Print Queues


#1

Hi,
Can nagios monitor Windows Printer queues? Specifically, I’d like to monitor how many jobs are waiting in each queue, whether the queue reports as being online or offline… things like that. Any ideas?

Hi

NSClient++ and check_nt will monitor anything in you can gauge using Windows Perfmon and as there appears to be a ‘Print Queue’ category in there with such categories as Jobs, Not Ready Errors, Out-of-paper Errors and so on, I’d say there would be a pretty good chance that this is what you are looking for. Check out the following links for more information:
