Windows Server 2008 R2 Print Services - How to monitoring jobs/usage

We have a number of network printers... Until now all users was connected directly to each network printer (LPR) and it was impossible to keep track of who print what and when...

I installed the Print Services in a Windows 2008 Server R2 but I can not fild out how can I monitor the printing of the users...

Please advice...

Thank you

Thank you for your links, but it does not answer my question...

I need to take some kind of reports of the printing action of each user... If I can have, except from the standards (time, user, pages, print details) also some kind of information about the toner used in each printing it could be great.... but it is not mandatory for me...

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

Print jobs can be found in the Event Viewer > System area. You should see a bunch of Print events. Each one tracks the user, printer, port, print job size, and pages printed. These details from event Viewer,  you can pull out through some scripts... anyhow I don't have it right now will update you when I see that.
