    Nevermind I worked it out.

    1) Create a cartridge.
    2) Associate it with a Printer Type.
    3) 'Stock' the cartridge' and set an alarm level.
    4) Now on your individual printers, you can 'replace' cartridges from your 'stock' and GLPI will do all the hard work for you.
    5) (Optional) Fill in the page counters and costs for extra stats fun.

    Edit: Also make sure you've got your notifications turned on!

    So it doesnt tell you how many a person has used and the cost of the ink/toner?

    No it tells you how much a printer has used, plus if you give it the numbers the real monthly duty cycle and associated costings. So for example, you can find out what your most expensive printer is to run.

    If you want to find out who is using the printer the most, you need to look elsewhere. Something like Papercuts logger for example.

    However if you combine the information from the above two systems, you can work out how much it costs on a per user basis. You can then feed this into a printer quota system (or just a spreadsheet if your cheap).

    You can also assign the printer to a person so GLPI would tell you how much to charge a person.

    As you know, I use PyKota for user billing... the GLPI stock control just helps me to make sure I have sufficient ink in and shows up any waste.
