we are printing many invoices to many 100 printers from hp,
mostly attached to hp jetdirect printboxes.
After the upgrade vom 1.1.x to 1.3.5
we have set all queues to retry-job.
No it's a big problem if a job goes to hold
(becouse of a fail off the ipp backend --> mostly if many jobs
are submitted in a short time period e.g. the printer is busy )
the next job is printed.
But we have many situations in which is not ok to
reorder the print requests, because it must then manualy sorted by hand
Please implement a jobqueue modus like
'no-stop' --> means like retry-job,
but not print other jobs in the meantime, print all jobs in queue order!
P.s. why is the ipp backend more sensitive than in 1.1.x ?
Cups is a great produkt !
We use it with 600 Printers and print
over 30000 Pages per day.
