spooled to the printer
Explanation:
This seems to refer to mainframes which use magnetic tapes. In the past if you wanted to do a batch job, you sent it to a spool of mag tape from the computer because it was a more rational use of resources. The entire sentence means something like "CPU time and processing time for management (or monitoring) reports for large scale print jobs, up until they have been sent to the printer spool"
