Anyone? Am I the only one doing this?
I don't experience the slowness you mention, but a lot depends on the Distribution and Patch settings you configure for your Software distribution. Did you enable any throtling there for WAN distribution?
In testing this, I set every throttling setting to allow 100% utilization of the link and it still is slow. There were some LD engineers looking into this, but I think they have dropped the issue with the push for 2016. They were able to replicate what I was seeing, but I need to rattle them again to see where they stand with it.
Thanks for the reply.
Seeing this issue as well, 2.5 megs took almost 8 min to download through the CSA. Client is on 15Megabit DSL and can downloads fast from other sites. Also downloading agent hosted on CSA itself is fast and downloads at about 5Megabit. What should be checked to make sure CSA is transferring as fast as possible could there be a bottleneck at the firewall?
There is nothing on the CSA side which is configurable at this time. Generally the client side distribution and patch settings>General>Network settings Bandwidth used from core or preferred server(WAN) is what will cause the delay. As noted above you can try to set this to 100% for both WAN and Local and see if this improves the speed.
However we also have a defect for this which I have upped the severity on. The defect ID is 258086.
To clarify perhaps - "if you experience this issue, please feel free to log a case with support, referencing defect # 258086" - that way, we can both attach you to the relevant defect & actively notify you when the relevant patch for the issue becomes available
