Hi --

There is an SNMP monitor that can monitor any object that is exposed via SNMP. I know we have some customers that are monitoring printers, though I haven't done it myself. If you had a MIB, it should be easy to point the monitor at the printer, and then search for 'toner' to find the correct OID to watch.

Thank
Quinn
