Printer Squirrel Description:

Printer Squirrel application screenshot

Printer Squirrel is an application that monitors print jobs being sent to printers, and sets charges. It is particularly useful in situations where charging for printing needs to occur instantaneously or where a number of individuals or groups are working together using the same equipment but are financially unrelated and thus need to be charged accordingly.


Operating System Support: WinNT 4.x, Windows2000, WinXP, Windows2003

Highly recommended.

I an a network administrator at a small college. We needed to get a handle on how much
our printers were being used and which students were using them. (the software also
does chargeouts, but we haven't done this). The software was easy to set up - I put
the client service on 8 of the servers that run the printers, then set them to send
the printer logs back to the computer at my desk. A total of 21 printers.
I have set it to email me out a summary of jobs done for that day automatically at midnight.
If I have any critisism it is probably a lack of reports such as daily spread of jobs - but
it has a data export so I just loaded it into Excel and did it from there.
Apparently you can send the printer logs in real time over the internet as well,
but I haven't tried that out.
All in all it works well and is pretty cheap.
