Easy-to-use, Comprehensive and Affordable Systems Management
The Dell KACE Appliance, and the service desk, has dramatically reduced my workload. Instead of being reactive, I am now very much proactive in the work that I do.

What is the Bandwidth of the SMMP connection

The K1000 appliance overhead is very small for SMMP. It is basically a keep-alive type of connection, or a heartbeat. Every 20 seconds we will send 5 bytes for each agent.

There are some other activities that use that connection – specifically Patching and ‘Run-now” scripts. If you have some of these types of items scheduled then it will depend upon the size of the patches or dependencies on the scripts. Scripts and / or Patching can be scheduled to off-peak times or to only have critical operations occur during peak times.
