The Question is:
We have a VMS system running VMS 7.2-1 and the LPD Daemon seems to be
constantly firing up TCPIP$LP_BG8573 ( for example ) processes with all of the
attendent page faults.
Can I limit this in anyway?
I am guessing that this is servicing print requests from UNIX systems and don't
think that it would cause any harm to slow the throughput down a bit!
Regards in advance.
The Answer is :
You could prevent users from printing, by removing the queues or such.
If the local system configuration and particularly the local system
processor hardware and memory hardware are configured such that the
commencement of a print job is noticable, it would appear that the
local system environment has capacity problems. Put another way,
please find and remove the system capacity limits -- the system(s) in
question are likely not configured with sufficient system memory for
As a workaround, you could reset the base priority for the queue(s).
