While some bandwidth could be recovered by putting a GUP on each subnet, the management of a large-scale GUP environment in a local LAN will likely take more time and effort than any nominal bandwidth savings.These updates occur roughly three times a day on average.While in the field we have seen clients use GUPs in different ways, the purpose of the GUPs was to reduce bandwidth requirements.We have run into scenarios where SEP administrators have configured remote client desktops as GUPs.
A few months later it was discovered that these systems have been decommissioned and replaced.
If the GUP does not have a definition it will reach out to its defined SEP Manager and download the correct update.
