So the manpage for cups-lpd says "large configurations" are a bad idea, but does not elaborate. Does anyone have any experience with using this tool at scale and how it copes?
I'm looking at around 100 printers receiving 3,000 jobs/hour (total, not each).
As a web programmer 50 requests/minute seems trivial load to me, but if it takes much over a second for each of these it seems it will eventually exhaust itself.
Can this work or am I setting myself up for unpleasant support calls?
(The jobs are RAW pass through straight to the printer, if that matters)
