Printing large file using 'lpr -P' command causes a "pause" before and during print.
We are running RHEL 2.6.18 with CUPS 1.3.7
Using the 'lpr -P' command, a large file takes several minutes (3-5) before it begins printing, in addition, during the print job, the printer will pause printing for up to 1 minute. I assume the job/printer is buffering the data stream. Is there a configuration setting that will begin printing immediately? The output is going to HP8000, HP1320, and CanonMF8350 printers. They all have the same issues, so I believe it to be a Linux/CUPS thing. Any advice, suggestions would be appreciated. I have an End-User calling me almost every day about it.
