DCPS DCPSAXP_E01A011 DECprint Supervisor DCPS OpenVMS AXP ECO Summary

Copyright (c) Digital Equipment Corporation 1995. All rights reserved. PRODUCT: DECprint Supervisor (DCPS) for OpenVMS AXP, Version 1.1, 1.1A OP/SYS: OpenVMS AXP, Versions 1.5, 6.1 SOURCE: Digital Equipment Corporation ECO INFORMATION: ECO Kit Name: DCPSAXP_E01A011 ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit: DCPSAXP_E01A011 ECO Kit Approximate Size: DCPSAXP_E01A011.A - 630 Blocks DCPSAXP_E01A011.B - 4284 Blocks DCPSAXP_E01A011.C - 2079 Blocks Total of 3 files - 6993 Blocks System Reboot Necessary: Yes ECO KIT SUMMARY: An ECO kit exists for DECprint Supervisor (DCPS) for OpenVMS AXP V1.1, 1.1A on OpenVMS AXP V1.5 through V6.1. This kit addresses the following problems: - 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 characters - 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.
