iPrint utilization question

I am wondering how much CPU/Mem/or Network Bandwidth utilization iPrint will use on a server? I am thinking of implementing it on our main file server and have concerns of loss of production from the server. Does iPrint use a lot of CPU/Mem/or Network Bandwidth. We obviously do not want to notice any loss in speed from this server. Please advise.

There are much better placed people to answer this than me, but I suspect you will get asked for more info....

What spec is your current server?
What will be iPrint requirement be - how many printers and what volume of printing do they produce?

This sounds like one these "how long is a piece of string" questions.

In addition to things ibelton asked what would also be useful to know is
what OS is your server using - NetWare or OES (Linux)? Version and
support pack level?

I wouldn't have thought the additional load due to this print environment would cause any problems for you at all.

Had you been looking at moving 100 printer plus, and those were printing constantly throughout the day, then maybe that would have been cause for concern.
