Abstract

   This document defines four new Job Description attributes for
   monitoring job progress to be registered as OPTIONAL extensions to
   the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP/1.0 and IPP/1.1).  These
   attributes are drawn from the PWG Job Monitoring MIB.  This document
   also defines a new "sheet-collate" Job Template attribute to control
   sheet collation and to help with the interpretation of the job
   progress attributes.

1 Introduction

   This document defines four new Job Description attributes for
   monitoring job progress to be registered as OPTIONAL extensions to
   IPP/1.0 [RFC2566] and IPP/1.1 [RFC2911].  These attributes are drawn
   from the PWG Job Monitoring MIB [RFC2707].  See section 10 for a
   description of the base IPP documents.  The new Job Description
   attributes are:

      "job-collation-type" (type2 enum)
      "sheet-completed-copy-number" (integer(0:MAX))
      "sheet-completed-document-number" (integer(0:MAX))
      "impressions-completed-current-copy" (integer(0:MAX))

   This document also defines a new "sheet-collate" Job Template
   attribute to control sheet collation and to help with the
   interpretation of the job progress attributes.  These new attributes
   may also be used by themselves in combination with the IPP/1.1 "job-
   impressions-completed" attribute, as useful job progress monitoring
   attributes and/or may be passed in an IPP Notification (see [ipp-
   ntfy]).
