Anyone know of any printer monitoring software available for use on a mac network? All our printers are monitored through CC3 and as we've kept the macs away from RM we have no method of controlling the printing from this room.

I presume you want to monitor/audit what is being printed rather than if the printers are turned on etc...?
How do the macs print? direct to the printers? if they print via a windows print server then you can monitor them in the same way?

If it's mac osx, then they use cups. If they are using cups you can either rely on it's page log or use something a bit more heavyweight like pykota.

I use it on Windows and mac clients. Works very well. It took me around 10 -15 minutes to set up and get running with filtering as well.
