Usage Profile Reports
The printer can generate reports detailing printer usage. Usage profile reports track over
160 items, including:
Unique printer information, such as printer name, date installed, total pages printed,
options installed, and network ID.
Supplies usage data (for example, ink). By tracking supplies usage, you can order
supplies in advance, so your printer will always be well-stocked with supplies.
Media and tray information, such as how often prints are made on paper compared to
transparencies, and how often each tray is used.
Job characteristics, such as size and timing of jobs.
Types of Reports
Job report — The job report contains information on the last printed job. This report
can only be e-mailed; it cannot be printed, because printing it creates a new job that
overwrites the report data. The job report is useful in environments where billing for
each print job is required.
Full report — The full report contains detailed printer usage information for all jobs
printed during the life of the printer. The full report is available in several formats.
See the following table for details.
