lpusers - set printing queue priorities
SYNOPSIS lpusers -d priority-level lpusers -q priority-level -u login-ID-list lpusers -u login-ID-list lpusers -q priority-level lpusers -l
command sets limits to the queue priority level that can be
assigned to jobs submitted by users of the LP print service.
The first form of the command (with -d
) sets the system-wide priority
default to priority-level
, where priority-level
is a value of 0 to 39,
with 0 being the highest priority. If a user does not specify a priority
level with a print request (see lp(1)
), the default priority level is
used. Initially, the default priority level is 20.
The second form of the command (with -q
) sets the default highest priority-level
(0-39) that the users in login-ID-list
can request when
submitting a print request. The login-ID-list
argument may include any
or all of the following constructs: login-ID
A user on any system system_name!login-ID
A user on the system system_name system_name!all
All users on system system_name all!login-ID
A user on all systems all
All users on all systems
Users that have been given a limit cannot submit a print request with a
higher priority level than the one assigned, nor can they change a
request that has already been submitted to have a higher priority. Any
print requests submitted with priority levels higher than allowed will be
given the highest priority allowed.
The third form of the command (with -u
) removes any explicit priority
level for the specified users.
The fourth form of the command (with -q
) sets the default highest
priority level for all users not explicitly covered by the use of the
second form of this command.
The last form of the command (with -l
) lists the default priority level
and the priority limits assigned to users.
The following options are supported: -d priority-level
Set the system-wide priority default to priority-level
List the default priority level and the priority limits assigned to
users. -q priority-level
Set the default highest priority level for all users not explicitly
covered. -q priority-level -u login-ID-list
Set the default highest priority-level
that the users in login-ID- list
can request when submitting a print request. -u login-ID-list
Remove any explicit priority level for the specified users.
The following exit values are returned: 0
