Address Schedule & Rate Limits

In one of my other posts I had BITS throttling configuration documented to reduce the bandwidth used by SCCM Distribution Point traffic between Primary and Secondary Sites.  This alone unfortunately did not reduce our traffic enough to keep the Networking guys happy.  We had a couple of larger packages get updated during business hours and this hurt the performance of a few smaller sites.  So I dug in further and found the options detailed below.  These did the trick but certainly created a situation where the entire team needs to be aware that packages will not replicate until the defined times or it will be a slower transfer.

  • In the SCCM Console expand your site and select "Addresses"
  • Open the properties of an address and select the "Schedule" tab
  • In this tab you can select ranges of time and define the availability that you desire


  • Click on the "Rate Limits" tab
  • Modify the limit options to meet your needs
