Allocate Memory*3

[Allocate Memory] menu is used to change the capacity of the memory for each interface and the form memory.
In this printer, you can change the following memory allocation.

Important

Note

PS

Specifies the memory capacity for PostScript.

Specify the memory capacity between 4.50 and 96.00 MB in increments of 0.25 MB. The default is [12.00 M]. The maximum capacity you can set varies depending on the free memory capacity.

HPGL Auto Layout

Specifies the memory capacity used for HP-GL, HP-GL/2 auto layout.

Specify the memory capacity between 64 and 5120 KB in increments of 32 KB. The default is [64K]. The maximum capacity you can set varies depending on the free memory capacity.

If the hard disk (optional) is installed, the hard disk memory is used for the auto layout. You cannot change its capacity. [Hard Disk] is displayed on the screen.

Buffer Size

For each interface, specify the memory capacity of the receive buffer (in which the data sent from a computer is saved temporarily). For LPD, SMB, and IPP, specify the availability of spool processing, locations, and memory capacity.

You can change the receive buffer capacity depending on how busy the conditions are and purposes. Increasing the receive buffer capacity may increase the disconnection speed of the computer for each interface. The maximum capacity you can set varies depending on the free memory capacity.

Note

Specify the memory capacity between 64 and 1024 KB in increments of 32 KB. The default is [64 K] for parallel and USB memories and [256 K] for the other memories.

Note: [IPP Memory] is displayed when the hard disk (optional) is not installed. [IPP Spool] is displayed when the hard disk is installed.

Specify the memory capacity between 1024 and 2048 KB (64 and 1024 KB when the mounted RAM is under 256 MB) in increments of 32 KB. The default is [1,024K].

[Off] (default)

Select this if you do not want to perform spool processing. When the LPD or SMB data from a computer is being processed, data from another computer cannot be received via the same interface.

For LPD, specify the LPD specific receive buffer memory capacity between 1024 and 2048 KB (64 and 1024 KB when the mounted RAM is under 256 MB) in increments of 32 KB. The default is [1,024K].

For SMB, specify the SMB specific receive buffer memory capacity between 64 and 1024 KB in increments of 32 KB. The default is [256K].

[Hard Disk]

Select this to perform spool processing. This uses the hard disk as the receive buffer for spool processing. This item is displayed when the hard disk (optional) is installed.

[Memory]

Select this to perform spool processing. This uses the memory as the receive buffer for spool processing.

If you select this option, specify the receive buffer memory capacity for spool processing between 0.5 and 32.00 MB in increments of 0.25 MB. The default is [1.00 M]. Note that the printer cannot receive data that is larger than the specified memory capacity. In this case, select [Hard Disk] or [Off].

Important: If LPR byte count is disabled in Windows 2000 and you send a document whose size is larger than the
spool memory capacity, the computer will repeatedly try to send the job. To stop this, open the [Port] tab from the properties dialog box of the printer driver to enable the LPR byte count or change the memory spool capacity to a value larger than the document size.

[Off] (default)

Select this if you do not want to perform spool processing. When IPP data from a computer is being processed, data from another computer cannot be received via the same interface.

Specify the IPP specific receive buffer memory capacity between 64 and 1024 KB in increments of 32 KB. The default is [256K].

[Hard Disk]

Select this to perform spool processing. This uses the hard disk as the receive buffer for spool processing.

Note: [IPP Spool] is displayed when the hard disk (optional) is installed. [IPP Memory] is displayed when the
hard disk (optional) is not installed.
