Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Do you know of any (preferably free) software that will monitor printer queues on a Windows Server 2008 print server? Specifically, I would like to be able to fire off an alert/email if the queue for a printer is >5 jobs, or if the state of the printer changes. (Offline, Paused, etc)

Thanks!

Josh

You can do this from the Print Management console on W2K8. Go into the Custom Filters section and set up filters and notifications based on your criteria.
