  • Hi, our network is flooded. Should I enable "Allow BITS Peercaching"? Will it help?

    Does Config Mgr Client cache help? If yes, why the network is flooded? I have no idea.

    We have about 40,000 clients. Our network consists of more than 100 networks and some network connectivity is 512 kbps only. Please advise. Thanks!

  • Yes peek caching will help.

    Based on the details that you have provided. There is no way anyone could possible answer the question of flooding. You need to spend time and figure out what is going on. 512 is a tiny network connection. But for 1 user it might but enough but for 100 you would kill it with just an email to everyone. So.... like I said there is no where near enough details for anyone to help you with the flooding question.

  • Concur with Garth; this is not a question easily answered or best handled in a forum.

    Also note that BITS and peer caching are two completely different, but somewhat complementary things. BITS is about network throttling, peer caching is about clients sharing content with each other.

  • Thanks GJ. Hi JS, we don't have good SCCM consultants in our region. So, I have no choice except to ask online. Our budget is also tight. So, can't afford experts like you in our region. I was quite busy in Incident reporting. Happy New Year..
