hmm..I thought (correct me if I wrong) wsus followed a mirror
(distributed) model say if a group of servers were pegged the update
process would provide remote clients access to the closet and min
latency host(s) in order to distribute the load prevent bandwidth
saturation.

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%
