Saving a document for reprinting later

After a file is printed, it can be saved in the inactive queue for a specific about of time based on the user requirement. This amount of time can be defined at a global level or at the document level.

The length of time the document remains in the queue after it prints is determined by the “savetime” variable. This variable is defined in the $LPSDIR/adm/lpsd.default. Default value for the “savetime” is 3600.


The time is specified in seconds. This value will save the document for one hour. The value can be changed by logging into the WEBUI and selecting the “Admin” section. Under the “Servers” tab you will click “Global Tuning” on the far right and then change the “savetime” parameter under the “General” tab. After saving the change, all newly spooled documents will be save in the inactive queue for the amount of time you specified for the “savetime” parameter.

You can also override the global setting when spooling the document with the ‘-osavetime’ option.

llp –dlp01 –osavetime=7200 /file/to/print

This will save this specific document for 2 hours in the inactive queue.
