NAME
cupsd - cups scheduler SYNOPSIS
cupsd [ -c config-file ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -t ] DESCRIPTION
cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used. OPTIONS
-c config-file Uses the named configuration file. -f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon". -F Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running cupsd from init(8). -h Shows the program usage. -l This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8). -t Test the configuration file for syntax errors. COMPATIBILITY
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administration operations. SEE ALSO

NAME
snmp - cups snmp backend SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname /usr/libexec/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname lpinfo -v --include-schemes snmp DESCRIPTION
The CUPS SNMP backend provides legacy discovery and identification of network printers using SNMPv1. When used for discovery through the scheduler, the backend will list all printers that respond to a broadcast SNMPv1 query with the "public" community name. Additional queries are then sent to printers that respond in order to determine the correct device URI, make and model, and other information needed for printing. In the first form, the SNMP backend is run directly by the user to look up the device URI and other information when you have an IP address or hostname. This can be used for programs that need to configure print queues where the user has supplied an address but nothing else. In the second form, the SNMP backend is run indirectly using the lpinfo(8) command. The output provides all printers detected via SNMP on the configured broadcast addresses. Note: no broadcast addresses are configured by default. MIBS
The CUPS SNMP backend uses the information from the Host, Printer, and Port Monitor MIBs along with some vendor private MIBs and intelli- gent port probes to determine the correct device URI and make and model for each printer. CONFIGURATION
The SNMP backend reads the /etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration file, if present, to set the default broadcast address, community name, and logging level. The configuration file is documented in cups-snmp.conf(5). The DebugLevel value can be overridden using the CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL environment variable and the MaxRunTime value can be overridden using the CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment variable. SEE ALSO
