You'd know, because you're the one who set up the print queue

The port # that the service is listening on.

But, it would help if you said what kind of Canon print queue. If you're talking about a little, consumer-grade printer, a CUPS monitoring solution that the one you were recommended, is the best bet. If you're talking about a big ImageRunner device, you can load the software from Codehost, which gives you a good look into the queue, and all the features.

Typo! That should be: http://localhost:631/jobs or just http://localhost:631/ for CUPS management, in general.
