Re: Slow Printer Performance on a Clustered Print Server in Windows Server 2003

You may experience slow printing performance on a server cluster based on Windows 2000 Server-based or Windows Server 2003 is configured as a print queue. By solving this problem occurs the following behavior :
  • Print jobs take a longer time to print.
  • If they fail on the cluster node to another node, the problem persists.

Re: Slow Printer Performance on a Clustered Print Server in Windows Server 2003

Many times it happens that your printer performance becomes slow because of unnecessary applications installed in it. So remove the applications that are not required. If you modify the Windows registry on the node in the cluster to increase the number of connections the node itself, the problem persists. Shared files in Folders \ Open administrative snap-in Management Tools \ System team, the server returns a file open multiple connections to \ Pipe \ Spoolss. These connections are not an owner.

Re: Slow Printer Performance on a Clustered Print Server in Windows Server 2003

This problem may occur if the Print Spooler service stops responding (hangs). There may be a situation where the spooler service is repeated on Yes when you make a remote call (RemoteGetPrinter) to a local printer. This behavior causes the spooler service connections to exhaust all available server itself. The spooler service stops responding because it is waiting for a thread that is trying to load a printer driver.

Re: Slow Printer Performance on a Clustered Print Server in Windows Server 2003

This problem may occur if you try to open a connection to a shared printer that no longer exists. For example, this problem may occur in the following situations :
  • Change name a share of the printer and tries to connect to the printer using the old name.
  • A network printer is local to a cluster node and tries to connect to it when the cluster node switch.
In these cases, the print spooler service routes the incoming call OpenPrinter local print queues (including the cluster). If local print queues not recognize the requested printer name, the spooler passes the calls to the remote print provider (Win32spl.dll).
