Subject: Re: [gentoo-user] CUPS: print jobs while others are being prepared?

1 This seems like it should be possible. The potential issue would be how to
2 ensure a whole job is printed, before a new job is sent. With a single
3 cups process sending to the printer, it should be able to print as jobs get
4 prepared. But configuring such might not be possible with current setup...

9 Hi,
11 is it possible to make cups print a job while another job is still
12 being processed, on the same printer?
14 Processing a large job can take quite some time, and the printer is
15 idle while the large job is being processed and other, smaller jobs,
16 are idly waiting in the queue for the large job to finish.
18 I want like a maximum of 20 jobs being processed at the same time so
19 that the printer can print the ones that have already been processed
20 immediately when their processing has finished.
22 Why should cups be limited to use only one CPU?
