PDF spooling very slow

Product Name: Other - specify product in post

We are experiencing major issues when printing PDFs to a number of MFDs, as it takes a significant amount of time for a PDF document to spool. We have a range of models including 72xx, 73xx and 74xx models.


  • The performance issue is with spooling, so the problem is not with the model of MFD
  • All users spool to our Xerox MFD e-queue, which uses the 7435 PCL6 driver
  • The destination MFD/driver is irrelevant at this point, all users print to the 7435 driver
  • The performance affects multiple PDF reader clients, Acrobat and other free readers eg. Foxit
  • Using the print as image option, doesn't improve the performance
  • We've printed the PDFs to the CutePDF Writer driver, effectively re-creating the PDF - the performance issues are the same
  • The problem seems to be affecting all PDFs, to different degrees

It does seem to be an issue within the core driver, and a Xerox analyst has tested many multiple driver versions, including as many model, release and language versions as possible. He also advised that a postscript driver did very little to speed up the spooling.


Does anyone have any ideas how we could resolve this problem? Thanks
