Sometimes Entire Print Jobs Are Being Skipped フォローする
I have BT & Commander 9.4 printing to a Printronix T5306r with 8/13/2012 build date Seagull drivers.
I have four print files hitting a folder at the same time, each with their own suffix like _BOX, _SERIAL, etc. The system that puts them there [i]starts them[/i] with a .txt extension. Only once it's finished writing to the file entirely does it then rename to kill the .txt extension. I have Commander polling (I've tried "immediate" and same results) this folder for files without the .txt extension, so it avoids anything mid-write. When it sees them, it sends to the printer and renames with .processed extension. The print jobs at this time are 1-5 labels in size--very small.
This works very well MOST of the time, but not all. I can go maybe 1-5 jobs in a row without issue, but then sometimes I'll notice that one of the four labels either prints out entirely as blank OR just completely skips it. The Commander on-screen log hints at no issue: it indicates everything with the missing label was proper.
I notice no pattern here. It can be immediately after a prior job (so printer is still warmed up).
[u]Essentially: Commander claims to send data to the printer and the printer isn't printing it![/u]
Any ideas? I'm going to set logging on the printer at the OS level to see if it's getting the data...
