After a very, very long test run, I decided to re-implement the successor of Downloader 2006 from the bottom up.
The Software is now called CYRION TOOLS COLLECTION and will consist initially of 3 components:
- RICOH DEVICE TOMOGRAPH (CTC#RDT) - Monitor RICOH devices using SNMP and other network protocols. The functions include graphical display of the device and its add-ons. Counters, job, media, consumables and paper catalogs. The Software supports GW and RICOH GW/EFI Fiery controller combinations.
- RICOH COUNTER COLLECTOR (CTC#RCC) - Collect current counters from a pre-defined list of RICOH GW and/or EFI Fiery controller based devices. Save those counters to File, CSV, DB or email them. There is also a windows service which will capture SNMP traps and collect counters and alerts on the fly. The windows service also serves as a local SMTP server for collecting device alert mails and log them to File/CSV/DB.
- DOCUMENT SURGEON (CTC#DS) - This Software uses certain 3rd Party Tools such as Ghostscript, PDFtk etc. to work with Printer document streams. The famous DL2006 PCL5 Decoder Comes in an new, updated version.
The Project has been set up and will probably release first debug-version prior to Christmas.
