Background: Our print speed in our hosted solution sucks. Is difficult to print a report in under a minute, basic attachments take close to 30 seconds. I’ve identified a list of potential issues and solutions via reading a couple old vantage threads and the Performance Diagnostic and Troubleshooting Guide. In order to test those solutions, I’d like to track how fast we’re currently printing and compare that to how fast we’re printing after implementing each solution. Currently the best way I know to do this is to print various reports from multiple workstations and write down the speed. This is time-consuming and is difficult to get a large sample size. There wasn’t anything in the Performance…Guide about systematically evaluating print performance, only a list of common issues and solutions.
Question: Does anyone know if there is a better way to track print print speed, ideally something that automatically tracks the time it takes for a user to hit print to the time the request reaches the printer?
-Thread started in 2014 by a former employee of our company regarding slow printing: 9.05.701 - printing slow
-Another relevant thread: Crystal reports very slow running times. V Epicor9.04.507A
-I have a spreadsheet that lists all of the potential issues I’ve found from the various sources. I can share this if anyone is interested. Guessing we’re not the only ones with print speed issues.
