Anyone else running Beacon yet?


We just installed it this week. Install was easy and the documentation is easy to follow.



So far we have only been monitoring the Uniprint scout; we plan on adding the device scout in a few weeks.


Anyone else using Beacon? Any issues? comments?


The only complaint I have so far is that the system isn't importing the device name when showing printer statistics, only the IP address. May be that I don't have it configured correctly yet (SNMP settings?). We are using  Xerox devices, so it's possible that others using another manufacturers equipment might see different info in the reports.
