Print Job Destination Balancing

INTELLIscribe records statistics through the destination balancing policy on the amount of data sent to each printer. New print jobs coming in will be sent to the printer that has the least amount of use.

INTELLIscribe destination balancing

Print jobs 1, 2, and 3 spool to printers 1, 2, and 3 respectively.

Print job 4 goes to the printer with the least amount of data printed to it.

  • When to use: Best used when you have multiple printers that are similar in print speed or paper tray size, and job sizes that are not consistent.
  • Destination Selection: The least used destination is attempted first.
  • Failure Handling: The destination that is the least used not counting the failed destination.
