What is the expected behavior of Image Multicasting Threshold setting in Deployment Solution

Environment

Deployment Solution 8.x

Resolution

The value set under Settings > Deployment > Image Multicasting for "Threshold" controls when the image is multicasted vs unicasted on Deployment. The default threshold is 10 which means multicasting is used when pushing the image to 11 or more machines. This value can be set lower if a higher threshold is causing bandwidth issues or network saturation. Multicasting deploys the image once in a broadcast whereas unicast pushes the image individually to each machine.
