Accessing device information
Besides providing information about the actual destination object, InfoPrint Manager allows
you to access information directly from the printer. InfoPrint Manager uses
device-specific attributes to provide this function. While device-specific
actual destination attributes are accessed through an actual destination,
the information comes from the physical printer. The device-specific
attributes are not returned when you ask for all the actual destination’s
attributes. You have to request the device-specific attributes specifically
or you can use
-r all-device to query all the device-specific
This is the list of non-settable device-specific actual destination attributes:
This is the list of settable device-specific actual destination attributes:
- Not all printers report all these attributes.
- The information returned is not translated.
To see the Status window from the InfoPrint Manager Administration Interface:
- Select an SNMP printer.
- Select Check Status.
- Select More Information.
You can use the pdls command to access SNMP device information with the -r flag, such as output-bins, like this:
pdls -c destination -r device-output-bins prt5-ad
You can also use the pdls command to access all the information for an SNMP device by specifying the -r flag with the all-device value.
For more information about the pdls command, see Chapter 2, “InfoPrint Manager Tools” in the InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
