HIGH UTILIZATION

By Jenks ·
We upgraded a server and things went well until we had set up a number of PC's to print to relevant Q's. Processor Util would stay at about 38% and would not clear until server was restarted. The problem only occurs when connecting PC's to printers (capture required for old applications).
Configuration as follows -
Netware 5.1 + SP2a
IP and IPX
Replica on server for bindery emulation and context set correctly
JetAdmin cards have recently had firmware upgraded
Netware client v3.3 sp3 installed on PC's

Would be grateful for any ideas

Wish there was an option for comments.
Please supply more information.
Are Print Servers and Queues NDS or bindery?
What type of print servers do you have? JetDiret, Intel or what?
Do you capture in your system login script and do you have a lot of mapping there? Try taking all but one of the print servers offline and then add them back one at a time, watching utilization.

In MONITOR.NLM | Kernel | Threads you see a sorted list of the Big Consumers on your server. Usually that gives a hint - unless it is "SERVER xx", that could be a lot I'm afraid. But worth to take a look at.

I solved this type of problem by splitting the IP and IPX traffic on separate Server NICS.

I run two remote print-servers (both Jet-Directs), as well as the basic Novell Print-server connecting 4 remote printers to 8 queues.

I also DON'T service my print queues from the SYS volume.
