Print Spooler Software
Documents are created by business software applications and handed off to the print spooler at the operating system level. Whether it is UNIX, Linux or Windows it is the print spooler’s job to deliver these documents to the printers.
The problem is the print spooler software in these environments is inherently weak. Jobs are automatically deleted after delivery making reprints and recovery impossible. The print spooler is not able to communicate with the printing device so there is no way to confirm that the printing function actually occurred. There is no print failover, load balancing or audit trail. There is no queue management of devices.
