At the moment I'm wondering if there are any limits I should apply to the
amount of printers I add to an individual print server w2k (IBM X335, dual
2GHZ Xeon, 2GB Ram). We have a 125 printers on one printer server. Does this
sound like a lot? I know it depends on hardware config and printer usage, so
should I just keep an perfmon eye on memory and processor and if that is ok,
then keep adding? Is their any OS limits or other considerations I should
think about?
