Mac Server Admin CUPS issue with large no. of print queues
KB Home | Mac Server Admin CUPS issue with large no. of print queues
This page has a collection of random notes about the Server Admin cpu/lockup issue. Seems like Server Admin on Mac OS X 10.6 consumes lots of CPU when there is a large number of printers (e.g. approx 50+).
When I have some time, I’ll add some tracing in CUPS and see if I can work out what’s going on. Rant: In the meantime I hope Apple are working on this. One solution (as adopted by many large Mac sites) is to switch the CUPS server to Linux :-)
