Loftware Adds Server Health Monitoring Capability to Loftware Print Server
by Diana Headrick, on September 29, 2020
The Loftware Print Server (LPS) and Loftware Label Manager (LLM) Release 12.1 is now available, providing LPS/LLM customers by offering a new Application Health Port that can be used to enable failover between identically configured LPS servers with the use of an external, third-party load balancer. This release also adds support for Windows Server 2019 and provides several performance improvements.
The new Application Health Port enables customers who require highly available labeling systems to avoid disruptions to labeling operations and continue label printing should an LPS server become unavailable. The Application Health port allows a customer’s third-party load balancer to assess the status of an LPS server and re-direct print jobs to an available back-up server as needed.
In addition, LPS/LLM adds support for the latest version of Windows Server so customers can upgrade their systems to the current version of Microsoft’s operating system. This may be especially helpful for long-standing LPS/LLM customers who are upgrading their LPS server operating system from Windows Server 2008, which Microsoft will no longer support in 2020.
