Printing a large PDF file causes an out of memory message or slow processing

If you see an out of memory message or encounter slow processing when printing a large PDF file, you can set the Merge banner pages into PDF print file property to No or increase the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) memory. Merging banner pages on large PDF files takes more memory and system resources than printing banner pages as separate files. If you need to merge banner pages, increase the JVM memory.
To improve system performance when printing large PDF files:
  1. Check the setting of the Merge banner pages into PDF print file property:
    1. In the Printers portlet, right-click the printer and select Properties.
    2. Click the Banner Pages tab.
    3. If the Merge banner pages into PDF print file property is set to Yes, change it to No.
  2. Increase the JVM memory:
    1. Open the /aiw/aiw1/config/jvmsettings.cfg file with a text editor.
    2. Increase the memory amount by changing the value specified.
    3. Save the changes and restart Ricoh ProcessDirector.
