What is the best MaxConcurrentConfigRequest value and how to change it?

Environment

Release: 8.x

Resolution

In the old ITMS version (NS 6.0 SP2), the default MaxConcurrentConfigRequests value was 50 and that proved to be too high for most large enterprise environments. Testing internally within Altiris and in conjunction with several customers showed that NS performs much better when MaxConcurrentConfigRequests was set to a value lower than 30. Since then default value has been changed to 10.

Some customers had tried to increase the default value for "MaxConcurrentConfigRequests"  from 10 to something higher. That usually causes a bottleneck when there are now more client machines trying to get in for a new configuration.

If your SMP server has enough resources for more connections, then you can try increasing this value in increments of 10 not never to exceed a new value of 50.

 

To change this value, under SMP Console go to Settings>Notification Server>Core Settings>Active Settings and search for MaxConcurrentConfigRequest
