I'm wondering what impact having many (100-200) unattended machines will have on our WAN connection.
How much bandwidth does each unattended machine consume whilst *not* being remotely controlled?

Many thanks

John

I initially did some testing when unattended installations came out and found out that they use very low bandwidth when not actually connected each one uses less than 1kb per hour.

You'll have tcp keep-alives sent minute or so. Each one is around 50 bytes sent and 50 bytes received. 50 bytes/minute = 3000 bytes/hour = 0.83 bytes/sec = 0.00083 KB/s ... * 200 = 0.17 KB/s for 200 machines. So not very impactful at all.
