We have a segment of our servers that is all on the same storage. When we patch that group in patch manager their is a noticeable performance hit to the point that it kicks users out of applications that these servers provide or they are very slow. The job takes 2.5 hours to complete patching 100 servers but the server's applications do not bog down until around an hour and a half into the task.
I was looking and a few years back Patch manager did not have bandwidth throttling. Does anyone know if this feature request was implemented as I can not find anything on it besides this 2017 article? https://success.solarwindsmsp.com/kb/solarwinds_n-central/Bandwidth-Throttling-Patch-Management
If bandwidth throttling is not a feature yet do you folks think that dividing these 100 server into more WSUS groups and running them separately would be the best option?
