Hi Manuales:

I know *you* know what you mean by "pending jobs in the queue", but we don't. Be specific!

Re: Pending Jobs

Are the processes in zombie/sleeping state?

The STAT column specifies this..

Can be determined based on that.

Re: Pending Jobs

The short answer is YES. Keep an eye on the /var directory. If it's getting full you may need to cancel the print jobs or clear the print queue manually.
