SCCM Site Server WsusPool using high bandwidth RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    We have standalone primary site server. i have installed Site server and wsus role in same server and SQL DB in separate server.

    we have 12000 client installed. everyday we are pushing the clients for 1000 machines. 

    Issues: WsusPool in IIS utilizing more bandwidth. If i go to (Task manager -->Ethernet ) there i can see sending speed is 250mbps and receive speed is 20mbps.

    please suggest me how to reduce the bandwidth speed.

    Thanks

  • Hello Manoranjan D,
     
    We could limit the bandwidth used by WSUS website from IIS manager.

  • Hi Ray,

    Thanks for your answer.

    How much bandwidth we can set ? I have 20,000 clients and what is the best practice.


    Thanks

  • Check your Worker Processes and see if there is a lot of activity showing and if sessions are going into thousands of seconds, these can also eat the bandwidth too.

  • Hi Kalyan,

    We have downloaded the KB from catalog site and try to install on server 2016.

    But we are unable to install  (KB4039396) on Windows Server 2016 (1607).

    It is showing, "The update is not applicable to your computer"

    Need your recommendation.

    Thanks

  • There are no such things as best practices. You need to match your requirements and capacities against the supported capabilities of the product.

    First, why would you install the SUP role on your site server? I highly recommend that you not do this. The site server is busy enough without any client facing roles on it. Also, do you really want your clients communicating directly with the site server? While there are no best practices, there certainly are bad practices and this is certainly a bad practice particularly with that client count.

    Next, it is normal that initial WSUS catalog downloads by clients consume larger amounts of bandwidth. How much depends on what you've selected in your SUP configuration. It also depends on whether or not you've cleaned up the WSUS catalog: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4490644/complete-guide-to-microsoft-wsus-and-configuration-manager-sup-maint

    Finally, you can ultimately use LEDBAT to control the bandwidth: https://2pintsoftware.com/enable-ledbat-support-for-wsus/

    Note that KB4039396 has been superseded for a long time. If you are manually patching the system which cannot access internet, kindly refer to the Update history of Windows server 2016 to install the latest updates. And do not forget to install the latest SSU for Windows Server 2016 first.
     
    Hope my answer could help you and look forward to your feedback.
