Is there a utility to inspect the jobs that a printer has completed?

I added the [cups] tag and removed [command-line] since the accepted answer uses cups' web interface –  Michael Mrozek Oct 7 '10 at 21:13

With CUPS (the standard printing system on Mac OS X, also used by many but not all other unices):

lpstat -W completed

CUPS provides a list of all jobs on a printer on its web front-end. Go to http://localhost:631/jobs?which_jobs=completed or whatever machine is hosting the print server.

That depends on which printing system you are using. When using CUPS you would like to have a look at the page logifile, which shows you every page that has been printed. The default location of that file is: /var/log/cups/page_log
