Appendix A - Glossary of Terms Addressability - On the marker, the number of distinct marking units (pels) per unit of addressability unit that can be set; for example, 300 dots per inch is expressed as 300 per 1000 Thousandths Of Inches and 4 dots per millimeter is 4 per 1000 Micrometers. Addressability is not resolution because marks that are one addressability position apart may not be independently resolvable by the eye due to factors such as gain in the area of marks so they overlap or nearly touch. Alert - A reportable event for which there is an entry in the alert table. Bin - An output sub-unit which may or may not be removable. Binary Change Event - An event which comes in pairs; the leading edge event and the trailing edge event. The leading edge event enters a state from which there is only one exit. A binary change event may be critical or non-critical. See unary change event. Bursting - The process by which continuous media is separated into individual sheets, typically by bursting along pre-formed perforations. Channel - A term used to describe a single source of data which is presented to a printer. The model that we use in describing a printer allows for an arbitrary number of channels. Multiple channels can exist on the same physical port. This is commonly done over Ethernet ports where EtherTalk, TCP/IP, and SPX/IPX protocols can be supplying different data streams simultaneously to a single printer on the same physical port. Collation - In multiple copy output, placing the pages from separate copies into separate ordered sets, ready for binding. Control Language - A data syntax or language for controlling the printer through the print data channel. Critical Alert - An alert triggered by an event which leads to a state in which printing is no longer possible; the printer is stopped. Decollating - The process by which the individual parts within a multi-part form are separated and sorted into separate stacks for each part. Description - Information about the configuration and capabilities of the printer and its various sub-units.
DPA - ISO 10175 Document Printing Application standard. A standard for a client server protocol for a print system, including (1) submitting print jobs to and (2) managing print jobs in a spooler. Event - A state change in the printer. Group - A collection of objects that represent a type of sub-unit of the printer. Host Resources MIB - See [RFC2790]. IANA - Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. See [RFC3232]. Idempotent - Idempotence is the property of an operation that results in the same state no matter how many times it is executed (at least once). This is a property that is shared by true databases in which operations on data items only change the state of the data item and do not have other side effects. Because the SNMP data model is that of operations on a database, SNMP MIB objects should be assumed to be idempotent. If a MIB object is defined in a non-idempotent way, the this data model can break in subtle ways when faced with packet loss, multiple managers, and other common conditions. In order to fulfill the common need for actions to result from SNMP Set operations, SNMP MIB objects can be modeled such that the change in state from one state to another has the side effect of causing an action. It is important to note that with this model, an SNMP operation that sets a value equal to its current value will cause no action. This retains the idempotence of a single command, while allowing actions to be initiated by SNMP SET requests. Input - A tray or bin from which instances of the media are obtained and fed into the Media Path. Interpreter - The embodiment of an algorithm that processes a data stream consisting of a Page Description Language (PDL) and/or a Control Language. Localization - The specification of human language, country, and character set needed to present information to people in their native languages. Management Application (a.k.a. Manager) - A program which queries and controls one or more managed nodes. Management Station - A physical computer on which one or more management applications can run.
Media Path - The mechanisms that transport instances of the media from an input, through the marker, possibly through media buffers and duplex pathways, out to the output with optional finishing applied. The inputs and outputs are not part of the Media Path. Non-critical Alert - An alert triggered by a reportable event which does not lead to a state in which printing is no longer possible; such an alert may lead to a state from which printing may no longer be possible in the future, such as the low toner state or the alert may be pure informational, such as a configuration change at the printer. Output - A bin or stacker which accepts instances of media that have been processed by a printer. Page Description Language (PDL) - A data syntax or language for the electronic representation of a document as a sequence of page images. Printer - A physical device that takes media from an input source, produces marks on that media according to some page description or page control language and puts the result in some output destination, possibly with finishing applied. Printing - The entire process of producing a printed document from generation of the file to be printed, choosing printing properties, selection of a printer, routing, queuing, resource management, scheduling, and finally printing including notifying the user. Reportable event - An event that is deemed of interest to a management station watching the printer. Status - Information regarding the current operating state of the printer and its various sub-units. This is an abstraction of the exact physical condition of the printer. Sub-mechanism - A distinguishable part of a sub-unit. Sub-unit - A part of the printer which may be a physical part, such as one of the input sources or a logical part such as an interpreter. Tray - An input sub-unit which is typically removable. Unary Change Event - An event that indicates a change of state of the printer, but to a state which is (often) just as valid as the state that was left, and from which no return is necessary. See binary change event.
Visible state - The portion of the state of the printer that can be examined by a management application. Warning - A non-critical alert. See non-critical alert. Appendix B - Media Size Names The PWG Standardized Media Names specification [PWGMEDIA], section 5 Self Describing Names, contains the currently recommended media size names. This appendix lists the standardized media size names from ISO/IEC 10175 Document Printing Application (DPA), [ISO10175] as presented in RFC 1759. Management applications are encouraged to use the names from the PWG standard. However, many legacy systems exist that use the DPA names and they are presented here for the convenience of developers. A printer implementing the Printer MIB has no knowledge of these names, however; all media sizes in the MIB are given in terms of media dimensions as the values of prtInputMediaDimFeedDirChosen and prtInputMediaDimXFeedDirChosen.

Appendix C - Media Names For the convenience of management application developers, this appendix lists the standardized media names from ISO/IEC 10175 Document Printing Application (DPA), [ISO10175]. Management applications that present a dialogue for choosing media may wish to use these names as an alternative to separately specifying, size, color, and/or type. New names may also be created using this format and the names defined in the PWG Standardized Media Names specification [PWGMEDIA]. Using standard media names will mean that a single management application dealing with printers from different vendors and under different system mangers will tend to use the same names for the same media. If selection of media by name is used, the attributes (size, type or color) implied by the name must be explicitly mapped to the appropriate object (prtInputMediaDimFeedDirDeclared, prtInputMediaDimXFeedDirDeclared, prtInputMediaType and prtInputMediaColor) in the MIB. The object prtInputMediaName is intended for display to an operator and is purely descriptive. The value in prtInputMediaName is not interpreted by the printer so using a standard name for this value will not change any of the other media attributes nor will it cause an alert if the media in the input sub- unit does not match the name.

Many times the real world need for a proposed object would be debated within the group; the debate would typically result in the need to describe the potential usage of the object in terms of a "live" person performing some type of printing-related task. Determining the value of a proposed object through identification of the associated human users was found to be so common that a more formalized model was required for consistent analysis. The model describing categories of human-oriented tasks is called "Role Models" in this document. In developing the Role Models it was necessary to identify the common, primary tasks that humans typically face when interacting with a printer and its related printing system(s). It was expected that certain kinds of tasks would serve to identify the various Role Models. In presenting the set of Role Models, the set of "Common Print System Tasks" are first presented, followed by the set of Role Model definitions. Finally, a simple matrix is presented in which Role Models and Tasks are cross-compared. Common Print System Tasks Upon researching the many tasks encountered by humans in dealing with printers and printing systems, the following were found to be pervasive within any operating environment: Printer job state - Determine the status of a job without a printer.
Printer capabilities - Determine the current capabilities of a printer, for example, the available media sizes, two-sided printing, a particular type of interpreter, etc. Printer job submission - Submit a print job to a printer. Printer job removal - Remove a job from a printer. Notification of events - Receive notification of the existence of a defined printer event. An event can be of many types, including warnings, errors, job stage completion (e.g., "job done"), etc. Printer configuration - Query the current configuration of a printer. Printer consumables - Determine the current state of any and all consumables within a printer. Print job identification - Determine the identification of a job within a printer. Internal printer status - Determine the current status of the printer. Printer identification - Determine the identity of a printer. Printer location - Determine the physical location of a printer. Local system configuration - Determine various aspects of the current configuration of the local system involved with the operation of a printer. These "tasks" cover a large spectrum of requirements surrounding the operation of a printer in a network environment. This list serves as the basis for defining the various Role Models described below. Proposed Role Models Following is the list of "Role Models" used to evaluate the requirements for any given Printer MIB object. Note that the keyword enclosed in parentheses represents an abbreviation for the particular Role Model in the matrix described later in this document. User (USER) - A person or application that submits print jobs to the printer; typically viewed as the "end user" within the overall printing environment.
Operator (OP) - A person responsible for maintaining a printer on a day-to-day basis, including such tasks as filling empty media trays, emptying full output trays, replacing toner cartridges, clearing simple paper jams, etc. Technician (TECH) - A person responsible for repairing a malfunctioning printer, performing routine preventive maintenance, and other tasks that typically require advanced training on the printer internals. An example of a "technician" would be a manufacturer's Field Service representative, or other person formally trained by the manufacturer or similar representative. System Manager (MGR) - A person responsible for configuration and troubleshooting of components involved in the overall printing environment, including printers, print queues and network connectivity issues. This person is typically responsible for ensuring the overall operational integrity of the print system components, and is typically viewed as the central point of coordination among all other Role Models. Help Desk (HELP) - A person responsible for supporting Users in their printing needs, including training Users and troubleshooting Users' printing problems. Asset Manager (AM) - A person responsible for managing an organization's printing system assets (primarily printers). Such a person needs to be able to identify and track the location of printing assets on an ongoing basis. Capacity Planner (CP) - A person responsible for tracking the usage of printing resources on an ongoing basis for the purpose of planning printer acquisitions and/or placement of printers based on usage trends. Installer (INST) - A person or application responsible for installing or configuring printing system components on a local system. Accountant (ACCT) - A person responsible for tracking the usage of printing resources on an ongoing basis for the purpose of charging Users for resources used. Matrix of Common Print System Tasks and Role Models To better understand the relationship between the set of defined "Common Print System Tasks" and the various "Role Models," the following matrix is provided.
It is important to recognize that many of the tasks will appear to be applicable to many of the Role Models. However, when considering the actual context of a task, it is very important to realize that often the actual context of a task is such that the Role Model can change. For example, it is obvious that a "System Manager" must be able to submit print jobs to a printer; however, when submitting a print job, a person identified as a "System Manager" is actually operating in the context of a "User" in this case; hence, the requirement to submit a print job is not listed as a requirement for a System Manager. Conversely, while a "User" must be able to remove a job previously submitted to a printer, an "Operator" is often expected to be able to remove any print job from any printer; hence, print job removal is a (subtly different) requirement for both the "User" and "Operator" Role Models.

The table defines a suggested relationship between various printer states and the variables Printer hrDeviceStatus, hrPrinterStatus, hrPrinterDetectedErrorState, prtAlertGroup, prtAlertCode and various sub-unit status variables (prtInputStatus, prtOutputStatus, prtMarkerStatus, prtMediaPathStatus and prtChannelStatus). This table is the recommended implementation of these variables. It is provided to guide implementors of this MIB and users of the MIB by providing a sample set of states and the variable values that are expected to be produced as result of that state.

126.96.36.199 "Overall Printer Status". This is not an exhaustive list rather it is a guideline. The definition of PrtSubUnitStatusTC specifies that SubUnitStatus is an integer that is the sum of 5 distinct values/states: Availability, Critical, Non-Critical, On-line and Transitioning. Thus when a non- critical alert or alerts are present the values for Availability, On-Line and Transitioning will be summed with the Non- Critical Alerts (8) value. The table was generated in landscape format and is located at ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/contributions/Top25Errors.pdf.
