    Unhappy fast printing / printing in parallel


    Hi All,

    we are using RHEL 5.5 (64-Bit)for our Production server. We are using Oracle ERP Application on this . We have multiple concurrent prints which are going via OS to end user printer.( end user printers are connected to network via a usb to network converters).

    Right now we are using CUPS, but it is printing one by one ,
    Our requirement is to print in parallel that too fast. there are hundereds of prints in minutes.

    is there a way or well know software we can use?

    please help.

    thanks

    That is odd , at work we have a similar setup. Just maybe not so many print jobs , but we have not noticed a sensible delay. One thing is that we use mostly printers with an integrated network port. Maybe your usb to network adapter has something to do with the slowness, maybe you need something with a bigger memory buffer.

    When you send a print job to a printer, usually it is stored in the printer memory buffer. See the specs on the laser printers on sale, most of them will specify X quantity RAM memory available. And in this case it seems like the network to usb adapter is acting like a bottle-neck.
