The page_log File Syntax

These are the items CUPS logs in the page_log for every page of a job:

  • Printer name

  • User name

  • Job ID

  • Time of printing

  • Page number

  • Number of copies

  • A billing information string (optional)

  • The host that sent the job (included since version 1.1.19)

Here is an extract of my CUPS server's page_log file to illustrate the format and included items:
