Printing is still an essential task for many computer users. It does not really matter if printers are used in offices and workplaces, or at home. While it is relatively easy to connect printers and use them, it is not as trivial to monitor what is actually being printed on them.
PaperCut Printer Logger has been designed to provide you with those information. The program itself runs silently in the background after installing and monitors most printer makes and models the PC can control.
While there is no guarantee that the program will work with a specific printer model, it is safe to say that it will work with the majority of popular printers out there on the market.
The program installs itself as a service that is running on the system. This means that you won't have access to a user interface that you can control. In fact, it is running automated from the moment the service has been installed.
The monitoring happens in the background and print logs are updated in real-time so that they are always up to date.
The following information are logged by Print Logger:
The print logs are provided in HTML format that you can open in a web browser of choice, as or CSV files or Excel spreadsheets which enable you to process the data further as you see fit.
PaperCut Print Logger can be used for a number of purposes. You can use it to track the number of print outs that you can make with a single print cartridge, monitor which users print out the most, or simply make sure that nothing gets printed out on your home printer without your knowledge about it.Advertisement
