Folks,

Attached is a first draft of a chart presenting
my personal top 20 events list. I hope this
will help us in our "attempt to standardize the
alert table entries, sub-unit status, hrDeviceStatus,
hrPrinterStatus and hrPrtDetectedErrorState for a
subset of the most likely printer events."

I'll get this out now without a couple of events
since I believe they can be inferred from what
is presented here. But if you want to add more
events be my guest and have at it.

P.S. If someone would be so kind as to put this in
the ftp://pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/contributions/ site
I would appreciate it.

The definition of PrtSubUnitStatusTC specifies that SubUnitStatus is an integer that is the
sum of 5 distinct values, Availability, Critical, Non-Critical, On-line and Transitioning.
These values are...

# The generic codes are recommended for use. These type specific codes should not be used
in newer implementations of the printer MIB.
