Sample configuration file for the pdfprs client

The following figure shows an example of a configuration file for the PDF parallel transform client. Note the three parameters that have been highlighted to show values you want to specify exactly as shown to enhance the performance of the parallel PDF RIP.

Note: The PDF parallel transform cannot be used together with the APPE transform.

This sample configuration file uses keyword equivalents of the transform flags. See InfoPrint Manager: Reference for the keywords and values that you can specify in the configuration file.

Note: For this sample pdf2afp.cfg configuration to work correctly, you must have a configuration with a minimum of four processors dedicated to this task.
