cups sensor platform is using the open source printing system CUPS to show details about your printers.
To set up the sensor the “Queue Name” of the printer is needed. The fastest way to get it, is to visit the CUPS webinterface at “http://[IP ADDRESS PRINT SERVER]:631” and go to “Printers”.
To enable the CUPS sensor, add the following lines to your
