We have a sun sparc xerox docuprint server that seems to be overloading
itself we print thousands of copies via batch and are looking for a way to
queue up the jobs in multipal queues then hand that off to the

Is NDPS able to do this? for example if we had say a 10,000 page batch
and we wanted to break that up in 1,000 page queued batches that ndps
hands off to the sparc?

I hope this makes sense....

Any information on how to make this happen would be much appreciated...

No, this is not possible.
The problem is that NDPS does not know what is in the job. A typical print
job contains an initialization and then the actual data. If you split up a
job into multiple smaller jobs, each of the smaller job needs to include
the initialization as well. All in all, this would mean that NDPS would
have to exactly understand what each command in the print job does.
