Title: Print system which analyzes processing speed and a method for keeping track of printing process status

Abstract: A print system has a printer host and a printer. The printer host generates print data based on image data and outputs the print data to the printer. The printer interprets the received print data and prints an image based on the print data. The print system calculates a processing time for print data generation, output and interpretation. Consequently, it is possible to know the processing times for each stage in the printing process.
