cups.plugin

cups.plugin collects Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) metrics.

Prerequisites#

This plugin needs a running local CUPS daemon (cupsd). This plugin does not need any configuration. Supports cups since version 1.7.

Charts#

cups.plugin provides one common section destinations and one section per destination.

Destinations in CUPS represent individual printers or classes (collections or pools) of printers (https://www.cups.org/doc/cupspm.html#working-with-destinations)

The section server provides these charts:

  1. destinations by state

    • idle
    • printing
    • stopped
  2. destinations by options

    • total
    • accepting jobs
    • shared
  3. total job number by status

    • pending
    • processing
    • held
  4. total job size by status

    • pending
    • processing
    • held

For each destination the plugin provides these charts:

  1. job number by status

    • pending
    • held
    • processing
  2. job size by status

    • pending
    • held
    • processing

At the moment only job status pending, processing, and held are reported because we do not have a method to collect stopped, canceled, aborted and completed jobs which scales.
