Information applies to:
Local caches are used as a component cache for all components available in the Systems Management database. When devices on that network require components, the applicable component will be downloaded from the local cache, and not the PCSM server, to minimise network usage.
Thus, to avoid all PCSM agents downloading information from the PCSM Server (e.g. a Service Pack) to minimise bandwidth impact, you have the option of nominating a device(s) on the local profile network as a local cache.
The PCSM agent will only download the components directly from the PCSM Server, if the local cache is not available.
How to configure a Local Cache
A device can also be added as a Local Cache from the Action bar on the Device Summary tab.
