How can I log pages printed on all printer by active directory user

My general manager would like to audit all pages printed on all AD printers by users. Is there anything I can set up that will do this. I could do with knowing paper size and colour/black and white but just pages printed and date printed would do for a start.

Basic information would be available in the Event Viewer of the Print Server. Look for events of source 'Print' in the System event log. The events are logged with the user's username, so you can see this information.

You'd need a third-party product to do more detailed logging or analysis of the data. Take a look at PaperCut Print Logger - it may be the software which does what you need: http://www.papercut.com/products/free_software/print_logger/.
