How to create a report/alert for printer toner level?
At UserKon, I was shown how to create SNMP inventory configurations and I have it set up so that KACE is pulling toner levels for a printer but I cannot, for the life of me, remember how to create a scheduled report that will kick off an alert on thresholds.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Brady, the life of the party!
You've done the hard part. Now you go to Inventory - Devices - on the right side you'll see: Advanced Search | Smart Label | Notification. Choose Notification and set your threshold there and set it to send an email.
The two methods I've seen mentioned on the forums to limit the frequency of emails:
1) Create a counter that checks if the message has been set. But then it would need to be reset after the threshold releases. Seems messy and might only work with tickets.
2) Check asset_history and query the time and frequency to be similar, so it would limit the amount of emails.
Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Maybe Chuck or someone else with more SQL experience might chime in with a better solution.
