Re: commandtoxbds high CPU useage on macOS Sierra - once again

Dear Xerox Team

I'm verry sorry to ask the same question, but has this matter been solved?

I recently had to buy a new MacBook Pro and expirience the very same problem. My new MacBook has the highest working memory (RAM) possible, yet commandtoxbds by Xerox uses it all up and turns my laptop in an unusable tool. Which is silly, because its just that dam Printing Status which I can't delete.

I would be very glad if you could help me.

commandtoxbds high CPU useage on macOS Sierra - once again

Product Name: Other - specify product in post


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
