Hi Gurus,

We are using cups for printing in SAP. Some time there is some slowness in printing, but SAP does not show any waiting spool process.
Could can one suggest on this issue. If there is anything we can change in OS level(Unix)or cups software.

Thanks in advance for the suggestion

Hello,

Can you be a bit more specific? There could be several reasons for the slowness. The trivial ones:
- resource issues on cups host
- printer can not handle the requests
- network issue

one extra issue we had:
both LPRNG and CUPS is designed for small queues (max 10 entries in the printer queue). If the queue is longer then the delay between processed print requests growth significantly. In case of 1000 entries in the queue it was about 10-15 minutes.

Regards,
Zav
