    ...its taking too much CPU %. what will be the problem ?   We have no idea what you mean by "too much". It is a subjective term that might not fit with anyone else. How much is "too much"? How do you measure it? And why is it "too much"?   Tom

    What is the elapsed time over which 27.8% was seen? What else was running? How long did the percentage remain at that reading? How many spooled files exist in your system? -- Tom

    The CPU % remains the same or  bit changes between 27% and 29% until that particular job has ended. And some other printer jobs are running but they are not taking the CPU%. Just one thing i want to know why that particular printer job is always in RUN status from the beginning to ending of that one.

    What type of printer is handled by PRT01? Usually PRT01 is a default system printer. -- Tom

    Is it using Host Print Transform? -- Tom

    Would these make the process seem to put a load on the printer?*IMMEDIATE (rather than EOF or EOJ) or SPOOL *NO

    Those are a couple more potential elements that might affect how a writer runs. But most previous questions still haven't been answered. -- Tom

    If your default print writer is using HPT, that's probably the biggest reason for extra CPU usage. Does the printer have an IPDS feature? Are you using PSF? (Probably not for both.) -- Tom

    We are using many printers here, we using IPDS feature.    But what is the reason for printer jobs in RUN status ?

    But what is the reason for printer jobs in RUN status ?   Because it's running. A writer wouldn't be any could if it just sat without running.   Or maybe I don't understand the question. If you want to know what a print writer is doing, use the WRKWTR WTR(PRT01) command.   Tom
