  • Publication number: 20100177344
    Abstract: A management apparatus collects an operation log and a job log from an image forming apparatus by using a job log collection unit and an operation log collection unit. The management apparatus identifies operation log information corresponding to a start operation, of the collected operation logs, as an operation start log information while identifying an operation log corresponding to an end operation as operation end log information. The management apparatus further associates the identified operation start log information and the job log information whose job type of the collected job log matches the job type of the operation end log information, with the operation start log information and the operation end log information.

  • Publication number: 20090303537
    Abstract: When a user selects an existing image forming apparatus and a virtual image forming apparatus, a job log acquisition unit acquires a job log from the selected existing image forming apparatus. A simulation unit calculates a processing speed of the existing image forming apparatus and a processing speed of the virtual image forming apparatus. The simulation unit performs job processing using the virtual image forming apparatus, and acquires a job log. The simulation unit compares the job log of the existing image forming apparatus and the job log of the virtual image forming apparatus, calculates a replacement effect, and outputs the replacement effect.
