With the Tracking Service, you can gather information about the print jobs sent with the ThinPrint Engine or with Personal Printing for your statistics (tracking).
To do so, you must set up a Microsoft SQL server. The ThinPrint Engine sends its tracking data to the server that has the tracking service installed. Print data which can be analyzed and displayed by Tracking Report Engine are:
- author of a print job (user/group)
- printer used
- settings used
- number of pages printed
- information on any errors
- compression rates (ThinPrint Engine only)
- print duration
- print data during a defined period
The SQL server can collect print data from different sources – from ThinPrint Engines on application or print servers or from Personal Printing servers.
