  • Question

  • 2012R2 SP1 CU3

    1 single parent with 50 secondary's DP, MP, WDS

    • parent server separate
    • WSUS server separate
    • SCCM DB sever separate

    Everything working great then we start getting complaints about SCCM traffic, but to only 2 of the fifty secondary locations. Come to find out the ISP changed the router and somehow it getting flooded so they have to shut down the local server just to do daily business.

    The parent site is on a 45Mbps and secondary's anywhere from 100Mbps to T1 speeds.

    I have no custom settings for any secondary and I have my site limit set to 50 connections.

    So... I guess I need to do something about it from within SCCM, I was told by a MS Premier Tech that it works but then does each site 1 at a time.

    I did test one of the secondary's with a rate limit change but they still got flooded and had to shut down.

    Can anyone help me please?

  • When you say flooded what do you mean ?

    Did you send a huge package over and it took 100% of the bandwidth ?

    Do you mean the client are all going to those 2 sites ?

    How did they found out it was the SCCM site that was causing this. 

    What was the source/destination?

  • flooded means too much, site can't handle what is being sent from sccm. Causes email and other problems at that location, pings times exceeded 3700 ms

    The package(s) were from being behind after a week of shut downs, consists of drivers, updates, applications.

    Clients means computer, users on computers... So when a user tries to use Software Center (which uses the MP role) and trys to install something they can't because the service is not running because the bootstrap is trying to install something over and over.

    Because the WAN team notified me and when we shutdown the local sccm secondary server everything went back to normal.

    source Chicago destination Seattle

    Hope that answers your question, now can anyone help me with controlling SCCM traffic?

  • Did you setup your sender to rate limit traffic? Did you setup your sender to only send High priority traffic during the day?

    How exactly did you setup the rate limit?

  • I should have also added, Have you talk to your network team about setting up QOS? Really this is the answer.

  • referring to the test I did, I gave it a pulse of 256k

  • I have given up on them and Century Link as its been 3 weeks now and they haven't accomplished anything so I have no choice to at least look at options on my end. I hear what your saying but there simply has to be a way to control traffic from with SCCM, its traffic.

    Thanks Garth

  • 256K is still quite a bit for a T1. Why not use the throttling feature instead and set it to something like 10% during business hours?

    Then you need to keep reducing it until you get to a point that is useable fro your environment.

  • Also, when you say "Secondary" do you mean "Secondary site"? The language you used is completely ambiguous.

    QOS is the best option.

    Then it is senders. You can limit them by time of day and traffic priorities and % bandwidth/pulse mode

  • they have a 10 Mbps pipe but we didn't see any change whatsoever, like its not working. 1 site set to that and the other 49 not set to any control.

    How do I use the throttling feature?

    Friday, April 1, 2016 1:23 PM
  • yes, that is where I am at but what test I did had no affect and does sccm then replicate 1 site at a time?

    the parent site has a 45 Mbps pipe, secondary sites can be anything from T1 to 100 Mbps.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • Post a screenshot of what you are doing as it's totally unclear as to what you have configured.

    "I have no custom settings for any secondary and I have my site limit set to 50 connections."

    I need to!

  • Read this is you need to understand how to control the bandwidth between your DP for transferring the data.

  • simple article.

    I was told by a MS Premier Tech that it works but then does each site 1 at a time.

    I read this too. Do you think having  50 sites update 1 at time would take more time than we have in a single day??

    That is not true, it will do one package per site at a time, when throttling is enable for that site.

  • 1 package at a time per site? huh, sounds the same? So with 50 sites that would be 1 at a time then?

  • 1 package at a time per site? huh, sounds the same? So with 50 sites that would be 1 at a time then?

    If you have 50 sites then you can have 50 connections. 1 connection per site during throttling times for that site.
