Tracking Printing

By teddyrux ·
I need a way to track the number of pages, and possibly the document names, on and NT4 server. The primary need is to track the page count by user. Any ideas?

You can use <dumpel.exe> from resource kit to export events to a formated text file, about print jobs:
dumpel.exe -f printedpages.txt -s \\ServerName -l system -m "print" -e 10 -t
Make a batch file with this command and schedule it to run periodicaly.
You can import/link this text file in access or excel and with filters or queries you can obtain as you wish the informations.

Some printers have that information in their memory. You can usually navigate on HP's Printers for something like Printer info.
