If the printer has a MIB OID that returns the number of pages printed,
then just configure MRTG to poll that MIB OID. Or if you can write a
script that retrieves the info you can configure MRTG to run this script
and graph the numbers retrieved by the script. The line in the cfg file
to modify is the "target" line, do something like:
There are some restrictions, check out:
