2.1 Configure the Content Download Settings

The Content Download settings enable you to define daily throttling of content downloads to ZENworks content servers based on enterprise bandwidth needs. For example, you can prohibit downloads altogether for certain time periods during the week, add a throttling rate for other time periods, and define again other time periods where little network traffic is expected for unrestricted downloads.

To configure your content download schedule, click Add in the Content Download panel for each download window that you want to set up and use the Content Download Override settings to define the throttle rate (Unthrottled, Throttled, or Blacked Out) and to schedule the window for that setting to apply (start and end times).
