  6. 6. A Network Downtime Print Solution The OM Plus agents deliver the print jobs to the local printers as well as store the jobs locally for a user-defined period of time, after which the jobs are automatically purged. Should a network problem interrupt the transmission of print jobs from central, the local OM Plus agents have all the jobs kept locally. In this way local personnel can retrieve and print jobs without having to go back to central. No changes are required to the host application.
