  • 1. Native Spooler Limitations and Solutions Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2014
  • 2. Spooler Limitations  The native print spooler that comes installed with your operating system comes with the bare essentials you need to print a document.  Native print spoolers (such as those found in the Windows O/S) do not provide advanced functionality and scalability.  The Windows print spooler is also prone to errors, loss of jobs, and services that need to be restarted in order to continue operation.  If you are in an industry where physical documentation is critical – the native spooler is not likely to give you what you need.

  • 3. Spooler Scenarios  During a print spooler service failure, all printing stops until the service is fixed – this can be a massive source of inefficiency.  When native print spoolers send jobs to the printer, the job is deleted.  There is no further connection with the printer and therefore the spooler is not aware of job status and can not automatically recover or reprint failed jobs.  Native spoolers have no alert notifications if the printer is experiencing a problem, such low toner, ink, or paper.  If a print job is stopped by an error (e.g. when a printer disconnects from the network or has a paper jam), the entire print job must be restarted – resulting in lots of wasted paper, ink, toner, and time.  Native spoolers must be manually rerouted to another printer if there is a failure – a huge detriment to assembly lines trying to print shipping labels or barcodes.
