Print Queue Analysis

Wes - Can you tell us what printers on a particular print server have more then 10 jobs? Why yes, I can. And here is how you can do it.

$Printers = Get-WmiObject `
-Class Win32_PerfFormattedData_Spooler_PrintQueue `
-ComputerName 'hisprint-p01'`
-Filter 'Name <> "_Total"'
foreach ($Printer in $Printers) {
if($Printer.Jobs -ge 10){
Write-Host $Printer.Name $Printer.Jobs

RHS780 75
OSUHE235 15
MMCT475B 32
DNW375 74

Admittedly, this is could be much more generic. Also, a nice visual representation could be made via PowerGadgets. These are left to the reader as an exercise....
