1.  Printsmith = PS Vision Digital - Speed?

Posted 8 days ago
I currently have this on my computer and everyone accesses it through browser.  I have been told it will run a little faster for my employees if it is on stand alone server.  Does anyone know if this is true?  I currently have up to 10 users on at one time.

It has and seems to be working fine, but wondering the pros to changing to a server dedicated to the software.

​I am not sure what you are asking.  Are you running Printsmith Vision? or Classic?

We used to use classic and now use vision (or about a year).  In classic, we both cases we had the server running on a machine that was mostly dedicated to printsmith and access it through our local area network.  Our vision server is running a new beefy windows 10 machine with an ssd and lots of ram.

When we did transition from classic to vision, there was a noticeable lag in all of our workstations.  Sometimes more than other times.

Not sure if this answers your question or not.

We also ran both PrintSmith and PrintSmith Vision on a stand alone computer. We have never had it as a workstation because we always feared using the server as someone's workstation could cause a problem, because a workstation has a higher chance of going down. We are using a Window's 10 machine with an I7 processor and 6GB of memory. We don't have many lags or anything to take notice with 10 users.

Curious if you are using Macs of Windows.  Also what network switch?  I would love to tighten up our lags here.

Shawn,

I attached the system requirements for your self host version of PrintSmith. EFI does recommend to have a dedicated server running the system.
I hope this helps.
