 lpsched(1M)							 lpsched(1M)

      lpsched, lpshut, lpmove, lpfence - start/stop the LP request
      scheduler, move requests, and define the minimum priority for printing

      /usr/sbin/lpsched [-v] [-a]
      /usr/sbin/lpmove requests dest
      /usr/sbin/lpmove dest1 dest2
      /usr/sbin/lpfence printer fence

      lpsched	  Schedules requests taken by lp(1) for printing on line
		  printers.  lpsched(1M) is typically invoked in /sbin/rc.
		  This creates a process which runs in the background until
		  lpshut is executed.  The activity of the process is
		  recorded in /var/adm/lp/log.

		  lpsched recognizes the following options:

		     -v	   Write a verbose record of the lpsched process on

		     -a	   Write lpana(1M) logging data on

      lpshut	  Shuts down the line printer scheduler.  All printers that
		  are printing at the time lpshut is invoked stop printing.
		  Requests that were printing at the time a printer was shut
		  down are reprinted in their entirety after lpsched is
		  started again.  All LP commands perform their functions
		  even when lpsched is not running.

      lpmove	  Moves requests that were queued by lp(1) between LP
		  destinations.	 This command can be used only when lpsched
		  is not running.

		  The first form of the command moves the named requests to
		  the LP destination, dest.  requests are request ids as
		  returned by lp(1).  The second form moves all requests for
		  destination dest1 to destination dest2.  As a side effect,
		  lp(1) rejects requests for dest1.

		  Note that lpmove never checks the acceptance status (see
		  accept(1M)) for the new destination when moving requests.

      lpfence	  Defines the minimum required priority for the spooled file
		  to be printed.  fence must be in between 0 (lowest fence)
		  and 7 (highest fence).  Each printer has its own fence,
		  which is initialized to 0 when it is configured by the
		  lpadmin(1M) command.	lpfence is used only when lpsched is

    Environment Variables
      LC_TIME determines the format and contents of date and time strings.

      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_TIME is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty
      string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each unspecified or
      empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to the empty
      string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of LANG.  If
      any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      lpsched, lpmove, and lpshut behave as if all internationalization
      variables are set to "C".	 See environ(5).


      Moving requests associated with remote printers can cause
      unpredictable results.

      lpsched, lpshut, lpmove, and lpfence perform their operation on the
      local system only.
