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
