With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a HP device in your network.
The current status of this printer device. When in the idle(1), printing(2), or warmup(3) state, the corresponding hrDeviceStatus should be running(2) or warning(3). When in the unknown state, the corresponding hrDeviceStatus should be unknown(1). Refer to RFC 1514, Host Resources MIB, for more details. Additional information: The printer's condition is mapped as follows: eHother -- The printer is offline or a critical alert
is active. eHidle -- The printer is not doing any of the items listed below for eHprinting status. eHprinting -- A job is currently being processed or printed or a PJL job is being processed. eHwarmup -- If hrDeviceStatus is eHdown, then the printer is currently offline but is resolving the condition that caused it to be offline and it will be online when it is ready to print. If hrDeviceStatus is eHrunning, then the printer was in power save mode and is now becoming ready to print. (In the HP LaserJet 2100 Series this status only occurs very briefly at boot time. At no other time does the printer report 'eHwarmup' status.)
