With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a HP device in your network.
Writing this object allows a device self test to be started. Reading this object provides an indication what self-test is currently executing, if any. Actual self-test operation is device specific. A self test may not be allowed at any arbitrary time. If the device supports the requested self test, but can not start the execution of the self test when requested, the device will respond with . If a non-destructive self test is being started, the device will generate a response before the self test is completed. RECOMMENDATION: If the device is ready (i.e. the NOT- READY-PRINTER object does not contain any items, except maybe being off-line) and is idle (i.e. the NOT-IDLE object does not contain any items), this request should always succeed. This provides a mechanism for driver writers to always determine if the action will succeed or not. Additional information: The eNonDestructiveSelfTest performs limited testing on the printer and its attached paper handling devices. After the self-test is complete a configuration page is printed. The recommended way to cause a configuration page to be printed is to use the PRINT-INTERNAL-PAGE object. A continuous self test cannot be started or terminated using this OID. When the printer is idle, setting this object to eNonDestructiveSelfTest results in a status of and a value of eNonDestructiveSelfTest being returned. If the printer is not idle (whether printing an external job, printing an internal page or running self test), a status of status will be returned with a value of eNotInASelfTest. When the printer is idle, setting this object to eNonDestructiveSelfTest causes the configuration page to be formatted and put in the printer's print queue. Attempting to set this object before the configuration page has completed being formatted and printed will cause status to be returned with a value of eNotInASelfTest. After the configuration page is in the queue, a get on this object will return a value of eNotInASelfTest. Setting the value to eNotInASelfTest is not supported on the HP LaserJet 2100 Series. Once the test has started, it will finish printing. Likewise, if the PRINT-INTERNAL-PAGE object is set to a valid value and that page has not printed when this object is set to eNonDestructiveSelfTest, a status of status with a value of eNotInASelfTest will be returned until the internal page has printed.
