  • What about SUP in largest environment
    1 Posts | Last post June 20, 2018
    • First, thanks for this document.
      I would like to know if it were possible to add recommendations about Software Update Points in largest environments (worldwide), and especially when managing Windows 10 clients.
      For example, since multiple datacenter are connected through high network links, should we keep SUPs localized  in a centralized datacenter, or should we deploy a SUP on each datacenter ?
  • Format disks

    • It would be nice to see in the same instruction, how to format the disks / partitions for CM and SQL usage.
  • Smaller Environments

    • It would be great to have a sizing recommendation for smaller environments like 1k, 5k 10k or 15k.
      Thanks for the great document!
  • Updated Whitepaper

    • Hi Everyone, 
      I have posted an updated version of the whitepaper. We've made some changes based on your feedback. Please see the update history section at the end for a short summary of the changes.
      Thank you all

  • Network Load

    • I would love to see more specs on networking, many customers have remote sites and need to plan for that.
      How much Traffic does roles and Activities generate, MP, FSP, SUP and so on. And its going to vary from case to case depending on what you have configured but an Example Config would be beneficial to see. 
    • I agree more information on network would be nice to have. I have spreadsheets with network values I use when designing solutions for customers based on packet captures. It would be a nice to have official guidance on these however to provide a warm fuzzy feeling to customers... 
    • Network information based on the ports being used will also help. Often network support engineers will question the amount of traffic generated over certain ports linked to ConfigMgr. If traffic on port 8530 for instance is picked up and it is several MB then we get asked why are the update scans so big when in fact it may be an update for Endpoint Protection.

    • Great whitepaper! However - as of March 26, any hyperlink that I tried went to a 404 error page. Please check and correct, thanks.
  • Please MS, take this document as a base for deep dive into CB architecture.

    • Thx MS for this whitepaper,
      for us it is the a step in the right direction. As other people here mentioned, there are lots of functions inside CB, that needs clearer statements and deeper analysis.
  • Assume this is going to be merged into the docs?

    • All good, useful stuff. 
      I assume once finalised, you are going to merge this content into the Doc Library where folks can find it, rather than tucking it away in a whitepaper folks may not be able to find/know about?

    • Any recommendation around remote SUP/WSUS server disk space requirements?
  • IIS and WSUS
    2 Posts | Last post February 23, 2018
    • The cpu and memory performance for the SUP servers would be great to see as well in various configurations. Also how the iis configurations impact the WSUS\SUP performance. 
    • +1 on this one. Application Pool - Private Memory Limit, queue length, etc. There are various articles with suggestions, but I'd love to hear the official take.
      Great work!
