This is already possible. Did you even run a single inventory?

Thanks for your answer David and sorry about the late reply.


I currently own a Lexmark printer which is not detected, I will be more than happy to add and share all the OID information needed, but I can't.

I will also love to get BW and color copies, and not only Total counter as will probably will if you add it to the supported list.


I see your point about templates, but is there an alternative?



Well, I was thinking about something more like this from Printer Counters plugin:





Sorry to break in this conversation :)

Zabbix proxy is not exactly a HTTP proxy.

From zabbix web page:

"Zabbix proxy is a process that may collect monitoring data from one or more monitored devices and send the information to the Zabbix server, essentially working on behalf of the server. All collected data is buffered locally and then transferred to the Zabbix server the proxy belongs to."


It is used to avoid continuous writes in database, which creates a serious performance issues.

Zabbix proxy gathers all inserts from all devices behind it and sends it in a single insert.


I do not know if this could be a issue to GLPi, since there's no such an amount of info sent continuously (like every second or every 5 seconds).


A work around could be using the DMZ approach:

Gathering all inventories in and inserting with fusioninventory-injector cron.
