Xerox printer 7120 managed print software

Hello experts , I have a customer with 50x users on a windows 2008 Domain controller network, there are a mixture of operating systems, xp and windows 7. Recently they had a Xerox 7120 installed by a printer dealer. The printer supplier wanted to install on the Domain controller directly , we told him we prefer not to install directly but installed directly via the users.
The problem we have seen from running it on a server is that the service can crash the print queue & then no one can print until we remote in & clear it
However we have learnt that there is a colour/ black & white reporting tool available and told that unless that is run on the server it cannot properly organise billing cycles for the colour vs black & white prints
Whats best practice?
How do other businesses run these reporting tools? thanks in advance

Free printer accounting software is available from Xerox: download CentreWareWeb

CWW keeps track of prints, and tells you how many were colour and mono. It installs on a PC (or server) on the network, and runs a web service to make the data available to other PCs. It can send regular emails with accounting details (and many other things).

However, CWW cannot distinguish between users. If you need per-user accounting, you'll need to pay for a different software package, which will need to be installed on a server as well as on every PC. Something like PaperCut will do the job.
