i am planning to utilise peer caching in my environment and need help with best practices/configurations required in sccm (like ports, settings)/etc.
If anyone can point to any documentation for the design document and for clear understanding, will be very helpful.

    Hi,
    Here is a guide from Johan which pretty much covers it all: setup-peer-cache-in-configmgr-current-branch

    I always recommend that you read through the offical docs as well as things update frequently client-peer-cache

    I hope that helps!
    Regards,
    Jörgen

    Hi @Karun Khanna

    Thank you for participating in the community.

    In the company I work for, I use the peer cache option due to the latency of links between sites.

    Important point:
    Attention to the packages / application that is also used in the Task Sequence.

    I went through a problem: The field technicians, to optimize the disk space, they deleted the files from the cache (c:\windows\ccmcache*. *), Without cleaning the WMI class.
    During the OSD deployment on new equipment or roll-out, the installation time was compromised.

    Behavior observed by the logs:
    The desktop validates the equipment of the same network and then tests which one has the package you are requesting.

    An example of the log follows: c:\Windows\CCM\Logs\ContentTransferManager.log24156-log-content.png

    Hi @Karun Khanna ,

    1)Free bandwidth of the peer cache source is used. We could not have to worry about this configuration.
    We could delete the content in the file of ccmcache on the side of the client.
    2)Yes, it will.
    Yes, we could disable the check box enough to make sure clients do not use peer cache.
    3)Yes, just remove the client setting.
    4)It seems that there might be no related article about them.
    A peer cache source rejects requests for content when it meets any of the following conditions at the time a peer requests content:
    Low battery mode Processor load exceeds 80% Disk I/O has an AvgDiskQueueLength that exceeds 10
    There are no more available connections to the computer.
