Print Server Management

Print server log analysis

Organizations typically host one or more print servers in a central location to manage the printing needs of employees. It's critical to monitor any place where information may be taken out of the company, and print servers are no exception. It is also important to ensure smooth running of the print server to maintain efficiency of the printing process. Auditing print server logs can help achieve these goals by offering the following benefits:

  • Ensure no sensitive documents are printed.
  • Flag attempts to print without sufficient permission.
  • Identify failed print jobs and their causes.
  • Discover patterns and trends in employees' printing habits.

  • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.

  • EventLog Analyzer has been a good event log reporting and alerting solution for our information technology needs. It minimizes the amount of time we spent on filtering through event logs and provides almost near real-time notification of administratively defined alerts.

  • I love the alerts feature of the product. We are able to send immediate alerts based on pretty much anything we can think of. We send alerts when certain accounts login, or when groups are changed, etc. That has been very helpful. Also the automatic archive of the log files has been very helpful and has taken the worry out of keeping old logs. The “Ask Me” function is very nice as well. It is great to have some natural language queries built in where you can just click a button and get an answer.
