Any updates on the Slow bundles file copy from Content Repo?

As per subject.

This is a huge issue for us and need to get this sorted ASAP.

Using ZCM 10.3.1

Is your issue with small bundles or just larger bundles from content repo?

I saw in the documention that if you turn off checksum that it will increase performance.

Re: Any updates on the Slow bundles file copy from Content Repo?

zcm10_system_admin.pdf, page 244. I was looking up how to trouble shoot Content Repo, but it does refer to all devices.

Agent Content Checksum: Specify whether the ZENworks Agent on managed devices
computes the checksum of downloaded content and compares that checksum to the stored
checksum for that content on the ZENworks Primary Server.
Comparing checksums helps to ensure that no errors were introduced during the downloading
of the content and that the content was not altered.
Under normal conditions, you should use the default of On. If your ZENworks System has
serious performance issues, you can set this setting to Off to increase performance.

Re: Any updates on the Slow bundles file copy from Content R

Does anyone know if there is still a trusted limit of how big an application can be in order not to have any issues when building a application using the content repo? I think in another thread back when ZCM 10.1 was out the Novell guys was talking about 1 GB bundle would be too much for the content repo.

Re: Any updates on the Slow bundles file copy from Content R

Is it really an issue with the size (MB) of the bundle, or with the number of files in it? I have large bundles which do not cause issues. Office 2007 for example which is nearly a GB with SP2 rolled into it. I have that in the repo as a single 7Zip, no problem. If I add that bundle as an install folder action with many many files, the servers go nuts. As a single 7Zip which I "Install File" onto the PC and then extract, the servers don't go nuts.

Yep, we see huge performance issues with lots of little files. HTTP just doesn't cut it for that. We put all of our source files into an MSI and drop them to the PC that way. Cuts download time for bundles by 50% or better.

Re: Any updates on the Slow bundles file copy from Content R

What about this:
If we have to work with a bunch of files that have to be installed / copied to the workstations - we zip-pack those.
1st action: install one file (the zip) to a temp-folder
2nd action: unzip
3nd action: do what you have to do

When it is a decent workstation this all is much faster then "installing a folder".
