HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
Re: [hylafax-users] batching almost there
It would seem, then, that the time-to-send is not being set
independently, but rather is being set with a relative value again.
Also, one thing that I should make you aware of before you encounter
this on your own and we have another issue over this matter... HylaFAX
doesn't currently maintain batches. So just because it's batched on the
first call, if it is retried (i.e. the first call results in a busy
signal), HylaFAX does not attempt to keep the jobs in the same order or
even at the same rescheduled time-to-send ("jitter" is added to the
time-to-send on reschedules). So if a batch does not make it through on
the first attempt then it will be highly unlikely [with the way that the
code currently is] that on the second attempt those jobs will be batched
I still feel like your usage of batching is a bit misappropriated. You
seem to be counting on the server-side batching mechanism to collate
your pages, and that's not really what the mechanism was designed for.
As I see it, this collation should really be happening on the
client-side, before the job is submitted to the server for transmission.
In the case of FaxSTF, I did read the documentation on this product and
it appears to me that the collation (the so-called "batching") is being
done manually by the administrator/user. So it looks to me like you
submit a few faxes to that product and then you manually tell FaxSTF to
collate them into one call before those are transmitted. In HylaFAX
terms, then, this is all being done on the client-side... even on
FaxSTF. To give you a HylaFAX version of the same procedure, it would
be like submitting all of the jobs and then later, before the jobs are
sent, for you to use something like faxalter to give them all a common

Please double-check this by looking at the files in /var/spool/
hylafax/sendq and checking that the "tts" entry is exactly the same
for all of them.
hmm seems not
that would account for it, page 1 takes a little bit longer to process.
