Method and apparatus for estimating printer resources

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #6977742.

An apparatus for estimating printer resources compares an amount of printer resources required to print a document to an amount of printer resources available at a printer to determine whether sufficient resources are available to successfully print the document. If insufficient resources are available, the apparatus alerts the user so that the user may replenish the resources prior to printing. When used in a computer network, the apparatus causes the printer to switch from a client print server mode to a direct printing mode causing the printer to stop responding to print commands issued by a print server and to instead respond to print commands issued by a print driver associated with the apparatus.
