Thx man. It works like a charm for me :) HP DJ 3800 + HP DJ 2055 dn printers.

I made even additional templates for cyan, magenta and yellow toner.

1. Just add/duplicate next data templates with changed OIDs, names etc. In my case: max black max cyan max magenta max yellow level black level cyan level magenta level yellow

2. Small changes in graph template (names, data sources etc.) and Voilà.

I will try add this all to aggregate graph and ... why not ... let's count printed copies :)

Hi mariusz,
do you plan to release the template? I'm graphing the printers here too, but was looking forward to some nice "all in one"-Template...

I'm a bit redundant. I repeat myself too ...

Used the templates in this topic

I'm trying to get the remaining ink level in percentage in the legend (and use the value in thold)

made a new CDEF

Code: Select all

added a new item (GTI.jpg)

but the values are wrong.
value on the graph is 23.66

So I think the max value that is used in the CDEF is wrong.

tried about everything
