I'd like to see a way to report on how much value we're getting from setting up GUPs, things like

  • How many clients in a group are retrieving content from a GUP?
  • How much load is being places on a specific GUP?
  • What is the GUP a client has reported to in the past or is expected to based on its current network location?

Not only network location, but also based on defined LiveUpdate policy

  • Space used by full & delta updates

In theory we can limit the amount of disk space used it, that said being able to report out of the console how much was used, how many DLs happened today and so on. 

As an administrator you make the case this change is going to save all this bandwidth to far flung offices, some way to answer the question "Well, did it work?" because seeing the lack of bandwidth in the netflow reports may not be as easy.

I took a look at this tool this week, very interesting. Looks like there are some file locking issues I posted about this weekend on the main thread. 

BTW, was good talking to you at Vision this year.

Yes, on my list of things to check out. There is one part I saw also

Warning: This is not an officially supported tool so it is use at own risk.

Just need to keep in mind for future revs that it would be great to pull all this stuff into the supported tools, give us visibility.
