How to reduce the load on CAS server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having SCCM 2012 SP1 CU3 environment. CAS is broken with its primaries on replication often.

    Looks like, its handling more messages for an hour (arround 82k messages)

    Is this a normal thing which can be ignored? and how to reduce the load on CAS server?

  • Do you have 100,000 clients?  If not, the absolute best answer is to Migrate from your less-than-efficient, should-never-have-had-a-CAS hierarchy to a Standalone Primary, and use Sender-capable DPs in the sites where you've put Primaries.

    If you DO have 100,000 clients (or more) then I suggest finding a consultant firm which has handled designing and making recommendations for a  site of more than 100,000 clients.  There are multiple ways to design (or re-design) with a CAS and primaries, but there are considerations specific to your company which may make a 'random recommendation' on a forum like this leading you to a completely horrible destination--which could make your issue with replication WORSE.  So I don't think we want to go there, in a forum.

  • I have 76000+ machines in my environment and we have a CAS server considering future expansion. 

    Looks like, I need to opt for Risk assessment program (RAP) from Microsoft?

  • my guess is you're going to have a hard time fixing replication issues on a forum, you should contact Microsoft.
