How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Support additional distmgr/pkgxfer manager component servers in primary sites to support load balancing of software distribution jobs.

Some primary sites have many remote distributed DP site systems and this can cause many content jobs to be managed by a single distribution manager / package transfer manager, which can cause delays and in some cases heavy server resource utilisation. I would like to see Sccm support load balancing of content jobs across a primary site.

    This is available via secondary sites but secondary sites with large numbers of standard distribution points suffer from the same heavy resource loads. allowing multiple distrmgr/pkgxfer components to load balance the jobs would be beneficial for both primary and secondary site roles.
