The Samba 3.0 roadmap mentions this as a wishlist item for 3.x. I'm
interested in looking at it.
Has anybody else already worked on it?
It seemed like it would involve a separate smbd process repeatedly
parsing the output of lpq and feeding it into a database, rather than
this being done on-demand from a regular smbd child. I suppose when
some change is noticed it will have to send a message to prod other
It might be good for there to also be a way for the spooler to notify
Samba when something has happened, so as to avoid polling.
This seems like it might help print server efficiency with many jobs
Am I on the right track?
