ECO KIT SUMMARY:
An ECO kit exists for DECprint Supervisor (DCPS) for OpenVMS VAX V1.1, 1.1A
on OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 through V6.1. This kit addresses the following
- Reduces memory and pagefile consumption by allowing a supervisor
process to control multiple print queues (runs "multistreamed").
This allows a system to have far fewer DCPS supervisor processes,
and thus alleviates memory and pagefile consumption.
- Reduces idle queue processor overhead by allowing supervisor
processes to control multiple print queues, thereby reducing the
number of supervisor processes and the overhead imposed by each.
- AppleTalk printer names may now be specified with 8-bit accented
- The ANSI translator has been fixed so as not to abnormally
truncate lines when printed with PAGE_ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE
on A4 media.
- The serial/LAT printer "back-end" has been changed to make it
less aggressive on job startup. Previously, DCPS could cause
a print job from a UNIX host or LATSYM to abort if the job had
completed on that host, but was still printing at the printer.
The serial/LAT back-end now waits for the printer to stop
printing before it begins the new job. A new DCPS logical
name can be defined to restore the old behavior, if needed.
- Previous versions of DCPS could hang, especially on AppleTalk
connected printers, if a job name contained the "]" character.
This problem is corrected in this ECO release.
- Under rare circumstances, DCPS V1.1 and V1.1a could exit with
the following message "%DCPS-F-INSEF, insufficient event flags".
This problem is corrected in this release.
- New system logicals are now recognized for changing DCPS modes
and behaviors to other than the defaults.
- The startup template command procedure, DCPS$STARTUP.TEMPLATE
has been updated to show how to configure the print supervisor
for multistreamed operation.
- The kit installation procedure and IVP have been enhanced
to check for and report running DCPS queues and components
that might cause unpredictable behavior during an upgrade.
- The release notes have been updated to describe how to
configure a system for multistreamed supervisor operation.
They also describe the new logical names and options.
