As demonstrated by several threads on the BigFix forum, adequate sizing and configuration of relays is an evergreen topic. BigFix should provide content that adjusts system and application settings for “large” relays. This content should be inclusive of: BigFix client settings; Windows registry; linux kernel settings. For example:
Windows: Reduce TcpTimedWaitDelay to 30
Linux: Increase nofiles ulimit to at least 16384
Providing this content, along with matching sizing guidelines and applicability relevance, would dramatically aid customers in successful management of their installations.
