steadyPRINT is composed of several software components that are distributed in the environment. The following figure - Overview of the steadyPRINT Components illustrates a simplified overview of software distribution in a network.
Figure 1: Overview of the steadyPRINT components
The master print server holds the printer sharings. An additional print server monitors the master print server and, in case of a failure, takes over this printer sharing responsibility. The servers and workstations with their user sessions must ultimately administer steadyPRINT’s printing environments. The administration takes place using network tools which communicate with the other components and services.
