B-1 Maintaining optimal system performance
This appendix provides troubleshooting tips.
Maintaining optimal system performance
The iR C2100/2100S does not require maintenance. Beyond the routine
requirements of servicing and maintaining the copier/printer and
replenishing consumables there are a few things you can do to improve the
overall performance of your system:
• Reduce unnecessary two-way communication.
If users notice that the server is frequently too busy to receive jobs, it may
be because several users are running utilities that are updated often. Large
numbers of remote users running Fiery Downloader or the Fiery WebTools
may have a signiﬁcant effect on iR C2100/2100S performance.
• Schedule the printing workload by checking job ticket information before
Print jobs with the same output and paper speciﬁcations together to
minimize paper changes. Also, print routine jobs while you prepare to
print jobs with special instructions or special media.
• Reduce unnecessary server connections at the Command WorkStation.
If you use a second or third iR C2100/2100S on an occasional basis,
performance will be improved if you log off when you are not using it.
• Avoid printing with the server "Disk full" warning.
If you see this warning, delete jobs from the Queues window that have
been held for a long time and are not likely to be needed. Avoid this
condition by deleting old jobs on a regular basis. The date associated with a
job is the original date it was sent.
