We're switching to LANDesk at my work and I've been having some frustration with slow additional file builds on machines. Pushing a 15MB application takes five times longer than it used to with our old deployment tool. I can watch the C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\sdmcache directory build additional files, at a rate of about 1 or 2KB/sec. My delivery methods are set for maximum speed/bandwidth consumption.
Prior posts on this community suggest that the slowness is a result of the LANDesk client checking the hash of each individual file. My question is why does it take so long to check hashes? And is there any way to speed this process up? I've used ZENWorks, SCCM, Tivoli, Altiris, and Radia in past lives and I've never had an issue like this. I'm beginning to think it boils down to poor deployment agent design. But, I'm still open to helpful suggestions if anyone out there in the community has some to offer.
