SEP 12.x bandwidth and GUP questions
Looking for information about several topics, all related.
We have excessively high traffic on our SonicWall's outbound X0 WAN port.
We suspect it may be SEPM updating many clients during the morning hours because this excessive traffic drops off in the PM.
Our SonicWall's ViewPoint shows huge web traffic to our SEP server.
1) How much bandwidth do the updates require per computer?? -- just LiveUpdate definitions etc., NO product updates (e.g. upgrades etc.)
2) What is the current KB article for setting up Group Update Providers in 12.x version??
We did NOT have this bandwidth etc. problem with 11.x or earlier versions of SEP...
3) What other settings could be reviewed to ensure that SEP/SEPM does not eat excessive bandwidth??
4) Any suggestions on how/what to monitor SEP bandwidth usage??
Thank you, Tom
