printbill_grapher performs statistical analysis of the stats file for
the specified printer, displays maximum, minimum, mean, standard
deviation and median for each parameter on standard output, and
generates a set of graphs showing the frequency distribution of key
parameters plus the temporal distribution of printer load (measured by
page count) averaged over four different time scales (past week, past
month, past year and forever). Output files are prefixed with
"printer_" and are saved in the path specified on the command-line (or
current working directory if not otherwise specified).
printbill_grapher requires a fully functional printbill installation,
and all that that entails. You must also have a functional gnuplot
installation with PNG support.
Please see the accompanying README file for installation instructions.
