How is the flow of the patches in ZEN Patchmanagement?

When activate patchmanagement the patches are downloaded to which place? To the primary servers, first? And then synchronize to all further primaries? As the ZEN-Update does?

Should I config a large pool for the patches? Where should this be?

A link to the right place in documentation is helpful, too.

One Primary Server will be designated as your main ZPM Server.  Its role will be to download the patches into your Zone.  From there, the patch content will be replicated to the other primary servers and satellites as other content is  replicated.  This is most similar to "Bundle" content since ZPM content is specifically comprised of bundles.  Bundle content, however, is similar to system update content.

The content is stored under the "Content-Repo" folder with all of the other content.

ZPM only downloads patches that are detected as required by devices on your zone and will remove old patches that are no longer required by your devices.  Thus the amount of space required for patches can vary widely.  If you zone is mostly Windows 10 64-bit devices updated to 1809 or 1903 and you are only downloading Microsoft Patches, the size will be smaller than if you are doing patches from any many vendors and you have a vast array of 32-bit and 64bit devices running XP, Win7, Vista, etc....
