Sometimes there is a need to slow down a software deployment. I had it once -- when deploying encryption software. In my case the problem was main encryption server -- which was not able to process more than 50 events from clients.
Here's how to sloooooow your deployment down a bit.
I was wondering how to deploy it slower to my more than 1000 machines. SQL helped me with simple solution -- which is -- using a SELECT TOP query in the target collection.
Simply create your target collection using the SELECT TOP ... query and it will be updated in next collection update cycle.
Enjoy your slow uptake ;-)
