Is it a good idea to have a GUP in the same site where a SEPM server is

Is it necessary/beneficial or is it overkill? Any guidlines on this subject?

I've always done it and will continue to do so. It takes the load off of the SEPM. If you can do it than by all means, do it! Especially if you have a lot of clients.

Me personally, absolutely do it. I've got hundreds of locations and GUPs at every one. I learned quickly a long time ago that if bandwidth becomes a problem due to SEPM, heads will roll.

if the SEPM is overloaded then GUP would make sense, else SEPM should be good enough to update the clients.

Hi

Having the GUP will decrease the load on the SEPM server

Hi,

Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

If SEPM is installed on dedicated machine then GUP is not required. However in the LAN network GUP is not required though it can be implemented if it's really necessary.

GUP is designed for remote sites to save bandwidth and in the local LAN bandwidth shouldn't be an issue.

If you have some thousands of clients in that site, it is OK to have GUP too.
