Download Software Update Package task apparently running constantly
While troubleshooting another issue on our NS, I noticed that there were many entries in the logs for Patch Management. We have our patch import and updates all set to run after hours, so I was surprised to see these entries during the middle of the day.
I was able to find entry in the logs above for item [1/174] and saw that it was tirggered by a reference to a "Download Software Update Package" task. I located this task in Manage>Jobs and Tasks>System Jobs and Tasks>Software>Patch Management. The task history shows that the task has been running on different update policies seemingly ceaselessly dating back months.
So, my question is: is this normal behavior? Has anyone else experienced this? Can you take a look at your NS and see how your history looks?
