    Important:
  • To retrieve data from your printers, you must first add the printers in Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector. Make sure that you configure all the settings correctly according to the printer type and that the data collector can communicate with the printers and retrieve data. For more information, see the Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector documentation.
  • All the time-related data in the default widgets is displayed in the printer time zone set in Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector.
  • For time intervals, such as today or this week, the data is selected based on the time zone of the web browser that accesses Ricoh Supervisor.
  • The number of impressions is only an estimate based on available job information and is not an actual count. The number of impressions is equal to the number of pages multiplied by the number of copies.

    If a job contains inserts, the inserts are not taken into account for the number of impressions.

  • The number of sheets is only an estimate based on available job information and is not an actual count. The number of sheets is equal to the number of pages multiplied by the number of copies. For 2-sided jobs, the result is divided by 2.

    If a job contains inserts, the inserts are not taken into account for the number of sheets.

  • The number of printer clicks is based on the data received from the printer counters. If a printer does not provide any click data, Ricoh Supervisor displays 0 for the number of clicks. For information on the printer counters, see the printer documentation.

    The way in which the clicks are counted also depends on the printer. For example, some printers only provide the total number of clicks and do not send separate data for black-and-white clicks, full-color clicks, or single-color and 2-color clicks.

    Click data is retrieved only for cut sheet printers.

  • The up time, down time, and idle time data metrics are calculated based on the printer state:
    • Up time corresponds to these printer states: initializing, feeding, preparing, printing, processing, and receiving.
    • Idle time corresponds to these printer states: idle, ready, sleeping, shutdown, warming, started, and start-up.
    • Down time corresponds to these printer states: not available, not ready, error, restart, pre/post not ready, pre/post busy, pre/post threading, pre/post EOF, pre/post paused, cleaning, adjusting, and maintenance.

    For printers with two engines, the up time, idle time, and down time values are increased only when both engines are in the same state.

  • For continuous form printers, the printing side information is retrieved based on the current printer configuration and not on the job settings. Make sure that you restart the printer every time you change the printer configuration.

    The printing side information is not available for TotalFlow Print Server cut sheet printers.

  • Data download to a PDF or image file is not currently supported for liquid fill gauge widgets.
