2.2 Configuring the Subscription Settings

To download the package updates from a remote repository, you can configure the settings on the Subscription Settings page in ZENworks Control Center.

  1. Log in to ZENworks Control Center.

  2. Click Configuration > Infrastructure Management > Subscription Settings.

You can configure the following subscription settings on the Subscription Settings page:

2.2.1 Subscription Replication Settings

  • Throttling Rate (KBps): Specify the rate at which you want to download the updates. If no value is specified, the replication uses the entire available bandwidth.

    For example, if you specify the throttling rate as 100, the package updates are downloaded from the remote repository at a rate of 100 kilobytes per second

  • Session Connection Timeout (secs): Specify the time after which you want to attempt reconnection to the remote repository, in case of a connection failure. The default value is 120 seconds.

2.2.2 Subscription Performance Settings

  • Maximum Replication Sessions: Specify how many subscription sessions can be run or replicated simultaneously. The default value is 2, and the maximum value is 5.

  • Subscription Cache: Select whether to enable or disable the subscription cache. The default value is Enabled.

    If this setting is enabled, the metadata information is read from the cache instead of downloading it from the repository which greatly reduces the response time when browsing for catalogs on the remote repository.
