Improving performance in the PDF RIP

You can improve the performance of the PDF RIP by configuring it to run parts of itself in parallel. These changes improve the performance of the core RIP; for improving performance by running multiple PDF RIPs on a multi-processor, see Using the PDF Parallel RIP. If you have a multi-processor server, make the changes described below to the PDF RIP daemon configuration file (ps2afpd.cfg) that are shown below in boldface text in Sample High Performance PDF Daemon configuration file using CPSI processing engine.
