Large print server High CPU usage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I want to create a new print server replacing my old windows 2008R2. So I install a Windows 2019 server standard with the print server role only.

    I deployed all my new print files (120) with the Universal Lexmark print driver (V2.15).

    This server is not in production mode and no client are connected to it but the CPU has more than 95% with the spoolsv.exe process...

    I test a lot of things like change the driver with PCL XL or PS (same version or precedent version 2.14.1) but nothing to do.

    I modify all my standard TCP/IP port disabling the SNMP and then the problem was resolved !!!

    Problem the users want to be notified when there is no paper or toner empty then I need the SNMP protocol to have this functionnality.

    I try to contact Lexmark but they say that this is not their driver but a Microsoft problem...

    I saw this post with similar problem but no solution...

    If an engineer have the solution please help me, I'm desperate.....
