This is a good list of counters.
(Context - These counters use names like 'TotalImpressions',
'ColorImpressions', 'HighlightColorImpressions', to separate
different costs of processing and printing.
These counters also use names like 'PrintedImpressions',
'FaxedImpressions', 'ColorFaxedImpressions', etc., to identify
the Service/Device type that generated the impressions.)
Three comments on your counter names:
(1) Job MIB (RFC 2707) defines 'fullColorImpressionsCompleted'
I _guess_ you mean 'full color' by 'ColorImpressions'.
I suggest using the unambiguous 'fullColor', as in
'FullColorImpressions', consistent with the Job MIB.
(2) I don't like the usage of 'Printed' rather than 'Printer'
(past tense rather than noun) or the fact that it's an
_infix_, as in 'ColorFaxedImpressions'.
I suggest instead using a prefix of 'Printer', 'Scanner',
etc., as in 'ScannerColorImpressions'.
(note - do scanners generate 'impressions'???)
(3) At the beginning of your list are some apparently
Keeping 'TotalImpressions', I suggest renaming the following
_system-wide_ counters to be 'TotalBlackImpressions',
(note - what object contains these system-wide counters?
Helper object 'Server' in PWG Semantic Model?)
I suggest that WBMM (which must name client, server, and
peer systems) use the term 'Node' as being service/device
neutral and consistent with network architectures. And
define 'Node' as a synonym for 'Network Node'.

Subject: WBMM> Strawman for Usage Counters
Here is a boiled down list of the usage counters that would be useful for
fleet management. I have not gone through and added the references to the
counters that already exist someplace. I thought I'd wait until we had a
chance to discuss and adjust this proposed list. The table is available at
