Sentry-go Quick Print Server Monitor

Proactive alerting makes things easy

Despite the age of e-mails, texts and other instant messaging, the role of the printer is alive and well. Ensuring correct operation is however, time consuming and complex, especially in larger organisations. The Quick Print Server Monitor is designed for just such environments.

By automatically monitoring print queue lengths, the status of connected printers and the size of jobs queued for them, IT staff can be informed of issues immediately they occur, even before the end user picks up the phone. And by keeping an eye on the queue itself, large documents can be reported, paused or even cancelled if sent to the wrong type of printer, if required.

Alerting and web-based reporting come as standard, allowing you to see exactly what's going on direct from your web browser, whilst Sentry-go automates the entire monitoring process.

Alerting & reporting

Alongside monitoring, the Quick Print Server Monitor also provides a number of other key features designed to keep you informed and help when issues are detected.

Automatic response & alert

If errors are detected, Sentry-go can either respond automatically - for example to restart a failed service or delete temporary files to recover disk space etc., or it can alert you. You can alert in many ways, including by e-mail, SMS/text message & network message.
