commandtoxbds high CPU useage on macOS Sierra - once again


Hi there,


my OS: macOS Sierra 10.12.6

used printerdriver: XeroxPrintDriver_4.8.0_1912

used printer: used printer Xerox ColorCube 8870


problem: the Xerox ColorCube 8870 is located in another office and as soon as I am in my own office - not connected to that LAN in the other office - the 'commandtoxbds'  uses up to 100% of CPU in activity monitor and in the print queue is always a pending job (which is not send by myself, but soimwhere comes from, the system).

Up to 100% CPU Usage ...



Found this here:

where the backgrund for this behaviour is described - and the solution doesn't help me, because the circumstances are different.


and this here:

Spete87 describes the same problem there - but there is no solution mentioned


I tried to use the step by step solution mentioned here by macfreek:

incl. the two terminal commands ... didn't help neither


the solution described here:

helped once, in the meantime doesn't work any more ... (??) ...


Any further suggestions - or even better: solutions is highly appreciated!


Thanks in advance,

Cannot get rid of that recurring job, even if I halt or delete it - it comes again and again and again
