    Thanks Bill - right - use multiple instances of (for
    instance) a PostScript interpreter to represent each
    different Marker - good solution.

    The MIB model assumes that the channel drives the interpreter and the
    interpreter somehow drives the marker through the system controller. There
    is a relationship between channel and interpreter(s) in the
    prtChannelCurrentJobCntlLangIndex, and the
    prtChannelDefaultPageDescLangIndex objects. You could define interpreters
    with a fixed relationship to each marking engine. This would allow the
    dynamic relation between channel and marking engine to be reported.

    I have three markers and two channels in my machine.

    I need to select which marker is printing the data from a channel.

    (like prtChannelDefaultPageDescLangIndex).

    Is this relation present or can you extend the mib?


    prtChannelMarkerIndex OBJECT-TYPE
        SYNTAX Integer32
        MAX-ACCESS read-write
        STATUS current
            "The value of prtMarkerIndex corresponding to the
             Marker for this channel.
            This marker defines the default marker to be used for the print
             from this channel.
            Must be 1 or greater. -1 means unknown. -2 means auto-select "
