Content Distribution Monitor Dashboard

Overview

This tool provides valuable information about your Distribution Point and assists in the management of content in your environment.

How Information is Collected

Information is pulled in directly from your ConfigMgr database.  

Where the tool is located

In the Assets and Compliance section of ConfigMgr, click on Content Distribution Monitor under the Recast Software Node.

Content Distribution Location

The top left section shows individual Distribution Points in your environment, as well as their distribution status. Successful, Error, and In Progress distributions will be shown.

The top right shows information for the Distribution Point that you have selected on the left side. You can also refresh the information to show any changes, and you can also Redistribute Failed Content Transfers for the Distribution Point you have selected.

The bottom section is interactive and will populate with content determined by which part of the bar chart you have selected above.

Results can be exported to CSV (via the button at the bottom right of the page).
