For quite some time now, i have always created self-extracting archives for any package that has many small files (when i say many, for example i mean 80 files over 40mb so not really many at all).
The reason i use these self extracting archives is because a software distribution transfering one 40 mb file is SOO much quicker that if the 40 mb is 80.
As i watch the files appear in the sdmcache folder, they appear at about 1 file every one or two seconds - i.e very slow. This is on a test machine on the same gigabit switch as the core server.
File transfers using windows in general are not slow, it is only landesk transfering the files that is the problem.
Anyone else experienced the same behaviour? Does anyone have a fix?
