NAME [Toc] [Back]
lpsched, lpshut, lpmove, lpfence - start the LP request scheduler,
stop the LP request scheduler, move requests between LP destinations,
and define the minimum priority for printing
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/usr/sbin/lpsched [-v] [-a]
/usr/sbin/lpmove requests dest
/usr/sbin/lpmove dest1 dest2
/usr/sbin/lpfence printer fence
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
lpsched Schedules requests taken by lp(1) for printing on
printers. lpsched(1M) is typically invoked in /sbin/rc.
This creates a process which runs in the background until
lpshut is executed. The activity of the process is
recorded in /var/adm/lp/log.
lpsched recognizes the following options:
-v Write a verbose record of the lpsched process on
-a Write lpana(1M) logging data on
lpshut Shuts down the printer scheduler. All printers that are
printing at the time lpshut is invoked stop printing.
Requests that were printing at the time the scheduler was
shut down are reprinted in their entirety after lpsched is
started again. All LP commands perform their functions
even when lpsched is not running.
lpmove Moves requests that were queued by lp(1) between LP
destinations. This command can be used only when lpsched
is not running.
The first form of the command moves the named requests to
the LP destination, dest. requests are request ids as
returned by lp(1). The second form moves all requests for
destination dest1 to destination dest2. As a side effect,
dest1 rejects requests.
Note that lpmove never checks the acceptance status (see
accept(1M)) for the new destination when moving requests.
lpfence Defines the minimum required priority for the spooled file
to be printed. fence must be in between 0 (lowest fence)
and 7 (highest fence). Each printer has its own fence,
which is initialized to 0 when it is configured by the

EXTERNAL INFLUENCES [Toc] [Back]
LC_TIME determines the format and contents of date and time strings.
LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.
If LC_TIME is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty
string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each unspecified or
empty variable. If LANG is not specified or is set to the empty
string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of LANG. If
any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, the
commands behave as if all internationalization variables are set to
"C". See environ(5).
WARNINGS [Toc] [Back]
lpsched, lpshut, lpmove, and lpfence perform their operation on the
local system only.
