Generally, printers are common for users to use for public use over a wired or wireless local area network. The number of printers in the same network is increasing, and management of multiple printers is needed. To do this, a program that drives two or more printers and a computer connected by a wired or wireless network. When a computer's control department receives a print command for a designated file, it executes the steps of receiving status information from the printer, selecting the printer, and sending the print command execution. As a method of research, we presented a method for selecting differentiation from this study through prior art research and literature research. Therefore, the purpose of the study is to distribute smart print commands according to real-time status information of many printers to increase the efficiency of the printer's management, and to distribute print commands according to the cumulative and usable workload of many printers so that parts replacement of many printers can be instantaneously performed.
