New bulletins being imported into your Patch catalog?  As soon as something new shows up and it's not deployed your compliance, by defition, goes down until those updates are deployed.

Hi Syed Saied,

Sometimes existing bulletins are revised, so that old updates are replaces by new ones or new updates are added to bulletins. In this case such updates may be detected as not installed and compliance level for affected computer will be decreased.

When you run the compliance report for a specific period, check the Distribution Status drop down and selct Active. See if that shows the accurate ones. Also, cross-check the applicable count and see if all your 2000 clients are showing as applicable . If you can provide a couple of screenshots, that would definitely help!
