Performance issue in the new version of PDFPrint Command Line application

Hello,

I have been a user of the PDFPrint Command Line product for some time and previously was running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system with (Physical Server) architecture.

We migrated to a new server with Windows Server 2016 operating system with (Virtual Server - Microsoft Hyper-v) architecture and we are experiencing a slow process.

In this migration, we also performed the update of the VeryPDF PDFPrint v2.5 Build software: Sep 25 2010 for VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line v7.0 Build: Apr 21 2018.

We use the following command line:

pdfprint.exe -printer "\\ SVH-PS-01 \ P87T" -duplex 2 -raster2 -paper 9 -rasterbitcount 1 -xres 800 -yres 800 -printermargins LoteImpressao_0001_123932_843774676.pdf

In the previous architecture to run execution was taking around 90 seconds and in the new architecture is taking 200 seconds.

Is there any reason for this longer processing time? Is there any procedure (or parameter) I can do to improve this performance?

Dear Support VeryPDF,

Our scenario:

We have an old physical server with Windows Server 2008 Standard - 16 cores, 32GB of RAM, in a cluster, connected to a fiber-channel storage. The installed version of PDF Print is 2.5.

We send a batch of PDF files to this server and the files are converted in less than 2 minutes, the average is 90 seconds.

CPU Utilization is around 12%, disk 4%, RAM 20%

The new server is a Hyper-V VM, the SO is Windows Server 2016 Standard - 6 vCores, 32GB of RAM, in a cluster, connected to a fiber-channel storage (using npiv). The installed version of PDF print is 7.0 April, 21 of 2018.

We send the same batch of PDF files to this server, and the files are converted in around 4 minutes.

CPU Utilization is around 18%, disk 2%, RAM 20%

Our problem:

The time it takes to convert the same batch in the new server.

Our request:

We need a way to improve the time it takes to convert files, we also need a way to track how it is going.
We also need to know if this version of the software is designed to work with Windows 2016.

Could you help us?

Thanks in advance,

Thank you,
Customer

Thanks for your message, our PDFPrint Command Line does support Windows 2016 system.

If you wish improve the printing speed, you may add "-raster2 -rasterbwtext -rasterbitcount 1 -xres 150 -yres 150" options to try again, for example,

pdfprint.exe -raster2 -rasterbwtext -rasterbitcount 1 -xres 150 -yres 150 C:\input.pdf

We hope above command line will print PDF file faster than before, you may run it to try again.

How to protect file on USB from being copied? PDF copy protection, Copy protect PDF on USB drive and Hard Disk, USB Stick Content Copy Protection - PDF Protect-Software

How can I prevent PDF file on USB flash drive to being copy and paste either via right click or drag and drop copy to other device that is hookup to it like a PC? The file will be PDF, document file, JPG or some other image file, and some movie file etc.?

The scenario is the file will be needed to be just viewable to show people but they cannot copy any part of it out from it other than admin level that create/authorize full control of it. Example is like a person on a field trip is bring some presentation stored on USB flash drive and show it on field premise to showcase company stuff like brochure, PowerPoint, concept drawing, sales figure etc. but we do not allowed them to have those file on the USB drive to being able to copied off to client's PC or even their own home without authorization. Not even a phrase or JPG image from a particular document etc. Pretty much just view only mode.

  • Stop PDF Sharing
  • Stop PDF Printing
  • Stop PDF Copying / Protect PDF against copying & distribution
  • Preventing Saving PDF / Save As
  • Stop PDF Download
  • Stop PDF from being Forwarded / Emailed.
    You cannot stop PDF files from being forwarded or emailed to others, but you can stop the recipients from using those files, see "Stop PDF Copying" above.  A VeryPDF DocSafe protected PDF file can be forwarded and emailed to another user but the recipient will not be able to view it unless the document owner has authorized them to use it.
    If you are the document publisher, you can email protected PDF files to users knowing that if they fall into the wrong hands they cannot be opened.  So if a protected PDF is accidentally forwarded to the wrong person they will not be able to use it.
  • Stop PDF Editing / Lock PDF from editing
  • Protect PDF against content & text copying
  • PDF Expiry. VeryPDF DocSafe enables document publishers to expire PDF files so they can no longer be used after a certain amount of time.  The following options are available:

    expire documents on a fixed date
    expire documents after a number of days
    expire documents after a number of views
    expire documents after a number of prints

    These options can also be used together so that you can enter say a number of days/views/prints and a fixed date and whatever occurs first causes the document to expire.  You might for example want a user to be able to use your documents for a 15 day trial period but those documents will expire on a fixed date regardless if the trial period is used or not.

    Expiry dates can be changed on the administration system at any time and document publishers can increase the number of views/prints available for each user.

  • Revoke PDF Files
  • PDF Watermarking
  • Lock PDFs to country locations, domains and IP addresses
  • Log PDF usage
  • Secure PDF Hosting & Secure PDF Distribution
  • Batch PDF Protect with command line

>>We are looking at replacing Adobe Acrobat - please confirm whether this tool can do the following: * What formats can it convert to (other than image) - i.e. word, excel, PowerPoint, html, text?

PDF Editor can convert PDF files to various image formats, include JPG, PNG, TIF, GIF, PCX, TGA, EMF, WMF, BMP image formats, however, it can't convert PDF files to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, HTML and Text formats, if you wish convert PDF files to these formats, you need by corresponding software from our website separately,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-to-html-converter/index.html
http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-to-ppt/index.html

>>* Can I extract images from PDF?

PDF Editor can save the entire PDF pages to image files, however, it can't extract images from PDF files, if you wish extract images from PDF files, you may use our PDF to TIFF Extractor to do this work,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-to-image-converter/pdf-to-tiff.html

>>* Can I delete, insert, rotate, and merge pages?

Sorry, PDF Editor hasn't the functions to delete, insert, rotate, and merge PDF pages, if you need to process PDF pages, you can use our PDF Split-Merge GUI software or Online PDF Page Master web application,

>>* Stamp Functions?

Yes, with PDF Editor software, you can add watermarks and stamps to PDF pages easily.

>>* Can I make redlines?

Sorry, PDF Editor doesn't support redlines and "Track Changes" feature yet.

Remark: "Redlining" is a form of editing in which red ink is used to indicate removal or addition of text in Microsoft Word. You can redline a Microsoft Word document by using Microsoft Word's built-in "Track Changes" feature, or you can manually redline the document with font color changes and strike-throughs. "Track Changes" is perfect for large-scale editing and feedback, whereas manual redlining is better suited to smaller documents and papers that are sent between different versions of Word.

Sorry, PDF Editor hasn't Website capture function yet, if you wish convert from a web page or a URL to PDF file, you may download and try our HTMLTools Command Line software from this web page, you can use this software to batch convert from web pages or URLs to PDF files on the fly,
