Minimum bandwith requirement for download DAT from EPO

Hi,

If I want to limit the bandwidth, what is the minimum bandwidth that is required so that the client ( at branch ) can download DAT from EPO ( at data center ) smoothly ?


I have branch with bandwith 128kbps and its share with other application ( citrix - 30%, email - 50%, antivirus, etc ). We use NetXplorer to limit bandwith from Allot Communication.


Tks.

Is there anyone can help ?

Re: Minimum bandwith requirement for download DAT from EPO

Hi,

well an incremental DAT has approx. 200-300kb, a full DAT 90MB per client. A distributed repository pulls the full and the needed last incremental DAT every day. Beginning with Agent 5.x you could also use the Peer-To-Peer option (so only one Agent would pull the incremental DAT).

So with 64kbps (50% of your total bandwidth) an incremental DAT would take 40sec. per client. Using a distributed repository (91MB per day) would need approx 3 hours per day for a DAT update.


Regards,

Frank

Hi,

How if I limit bandwidth usage becomes 10kbps whether the update process is still running? Or there is no limitation for the update could run ?

The process update is using SSL ya ? If i'm not wrong there is limitation on bandwith if we using SSL port, if the download failed three times then the download will not retry again.


Tks.

This all depends on your Agent, Client- or Server-Task (depending on chosen update method) settings.
