So, maybe an operational question.

What are people seeing as far as network traffic loads due to WMF patching
activity, e.g. auto-update and manual downloads?  Microsoft has used
several CDNs in addition to its own servers to distribute the load
in the past.

WSUS servers are being pounded right now. Usually 5 to 7% CPU now 72%

On usual Black Tuesdays though, there is quite a rush as well. Thing is this patch is alone while then there are a few. I believe it might even itself out in statistics.
