> In talking with my collegue I found out the following:
> They have a five story building with one CentOS 5.0 Linux Print Server for each floor.  All of the machines except for the print servers are running Windows XP.
> They have a given range of static IP addresses (roughly 244 IP addresses).
> They would like to be able to set quotas on the number of pages that can be printed on each individual machine in a given time period (one day, one week, etc.).  Some machines would have different parameters (Machine 3 on the first floor  -- quota of 20 pages per day,  Machine 2 on the fourth floor  -- quota of 150 pages per week, Machine 7 on the first floor  -- quota of 200 pages per week, etc.)
> Also they would like to be able to get (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) reports of print usage on each machine.

I don't know much about it, but I found this on google ...
