monitor alerts on Dell Printers

we have about 10 dell printers on our network and i am looking for a free GUI that i can check and alert me if there is an error/ jam etc. on the printers. i know i can configure each printer to email me however trying to find a solution that would not clog up my mailbox.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If your printers support SNMP you could configure a tool like solarwinds, nagios, or any other free or paid SNMP monitoring tool to report on the status of these devices. Depending on which software you use they may even let you create a dashboard showing the status of all your printers at a glance.

Check out Spiceworks for monitoring your printers and getting alerts.  It is a free program that allows you manage devices on your network including printers, computers, servers, network equipment, routers, etc.  It has a decent dashboard where you can see all your devices in one place.  They do have many ads within the program, but what do you expect for free.  They also have an ad free version which you can inquire about.  There are paid monitoring tools as well from AVG (aka Level Platforms) and N-able which you can review as well.
