Lexmark Printer Monitor

Version 2

    Setup a basic template for monitoring Lexmark printers via service required, paper jams, toner, and paper level. I have added in four different SNMP Monitors that send a warning if they return a value of 3 and a critical if they return a value of 2. I have been using it for about a week to monitor 15 different public used printers and it seems to be working fine, and since I did not see one currently up on the shared templates, I figured I would put this one out there in case anybody else might want to give it a try. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know, or If you have any improvement you see that would make this better, I would be more than happy to hear them.

     

    First SNMP Component pulls the printer's current service required status.

     

    OID - .1.3.6.1.4.1.641.2.1.3.1.7.1

     

    Returns:

     

    1 = No Service Required

    2 = Service Required

    3 = UnKnown

     

     

    Second SNMP Component monitors the printer's current paper path status.

     

    OID - .1.3.6.1.4.1.641.2.1.3.1.5.1

     

    Returns:

     

    1 = Not Jammed

    2 = Jammed

    3 = Unknown

     

     

    Third SNMP Component  The printer's current toner supply status.

     

    OID - .1.3.6.1.4.1.641.2.1.3.1.6.1

     

    Returns:

     

    1 = No Toner Error

    2 = Toner Error

    3 = UnKnown

     

     

    Fourth SNMP Component Monitors the printer's current active input paper tray status.

     

    OID - .1.3.6.1.4.1.641.2.1.3.1.4.1

     

    Returns:

     

    1 = Not Empty

    2 = Empty

    3 = Unknown
