WSUS - limit bandwidth for downloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I would like to limit the bandwidth used by WSUS server while downloading updates from MS servers (not the bandwidth used by clients downloading from my WSUS). How can it be done?

    Cheers and thanks!

    Create a GPO an set this Settings: https://www.wsus.de/bits/ The GPO
    you linked only to your WSUS. Gpupdate and Reboot.

  • Hi,
       

    You can easily throttle the bandwidth WSUS uses using a local computer policy.
    Do the following on your WSUS server:
       

    1. Log on to the server by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc, and then press ENTER.
    3. In the left pane of the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Network, and then click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
    4. In the Setting pane, double-click Limit the maximum network bandwidth for BITS background transfers.
    5. In the top pane of the dialog box, click Enabled.
    6. In the Options pane, set the transfer rate in kilobits per second (Kbps) that you want BITS to use. The default value is 10 Kbps.
    7. Set the times during which you want to limit bandwidth. The default setting is from 12:00 A.M. to 12:00 A.M.
    8. Set the limitations to use outside the designated time. The default setting is Use all available unused bandwidth.
    9. Click OK to save the settings.
         

    Hope the above can help you.
