Generic Printer: Input Unit State

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: SNMP

This check monitors the state of input units withing printers. It monitors the state provided and also outputs the filling state information provided by the printer.

The printer has to support the generic PRINTER-MIB.

By default the check outputs CRITICAL when either the printer reports 0% units remaining or reports a critical error state. A WARNING state is raised when a non-critical error is provided.

According the PRINTER-MIB it's possible that a printer couldn't determine how much is remaining in a supply, so the printer says "at least one remaining".

Discovery

One check is being created for each unit with a unique name.
