HP Jetdirect Print Servers - HP UX and Solaris Tracking Page Count Using Logfile

Issue:
Keeping track of users’ page count for accounting purposes.
Solution
Use either the Jetdirect Printer Installer for UNIX® for HP-UX v 10/11.x and Solaris v 2.5.1, 2.6, 7, and 8, or HP Jetadmin (obsolete) for HP-UX v 9.x and Solaris v 2.2, 2.3 to create a logfile that can track the number of pages have been printed by a user. Use one of the methods listed below.
Method 1: Using HP Jetdirect Printer Installer for UNIX to set up a new queue that will track pages
  1. Log in as super user.
  2. Run Jetdirect Printer Installer for UNIX.
  3. Choose 1) Spooler Administration
  4. Choose 1) Add printer to local spooler
  5. Type in the printer's IP address or hostname.
  6. At the Configurable Parameters menu, choose 2) Status Log to enable a logfile and note the file name.
  7. Choose 5) Additional printer configuration
  8. Verify that 4) True End-of-Job is ON.
      note:
    Any of the other Configurable Parameters may also be configured at this point.
  9. Press q) to end configuration.
  10. Press 0) to save the configuration.
Whenever anything is printed to that queue, the total number of pages will be kept in the logfile in the /opt/hpnpl/tmp directory. The filename will always be queuename.log. For example, if the queue name were laser4, the file name would be laser4.log. The system administrator can generate a report based on the information in the queuename.log file by using the grep command on the appropriate fields in the file.
  note:
If the log file is not keeping track of printed pages, make sure True End-of-Job is enabled. See the steps below for changing a queue that has already been configured.

For example, if the queue name were laser4, the file name would be laser4.log. The system administrator can generate a report based on the information in the queuename.log file by using the grep command on the appropriate fields in the file.
