Check Printer Toner

Check Toner

Hi All,

I found the standard Nagios check_hpjd plugin to be unreliable at times - so I wrote my own which checks toner levels via snmp.

The file "" checks the toner levels on all HP / UTAX / Kyocera Printers. The other file is for the Black and White Utax / Kyocera Models only. If you have a color Utax / Kyocera Printer, Use the color plugin to check their Black Ink Levels.

You Need snmpget for this plugin to work, this is generally part of snmptools.

Command syntax is: , eg: K

Valid Options for Toner color are:

C (for Cyan) M (for Magenta) Y (for Yellow) K (for Black)

Note that these are case sensitive!!
