Way of monitoring toner levels in SNMP capable network printers
I have about 10 network printers (various HP and Brother) - they all seem to support the SNMP Printer-MIB. What I'd ideally like to do is put a page on my LAMP server that is a one page summary of all the printers' toner and drum levels. Does a decent open source application to do this already exist? And if not, does anyone have any clues on how the Printer-MIB is supposed to work? I could program it myself with a Perl or PHP SNMP module - but the numbers I get from snmpwalk don't match what each printers built-in web status page says for it - it seems like it would be easier just to scrape info from that than to do proper SNMP.
Thanks for any help,
