Some of my thoughts.

Bigfix Settings For All Computers

In this document I’m going to outline what I feel are conservative tweaks to BigFix Client Settings that should be safe for 99% of computers in 99% of BigFix deployments. In some cases more aggressive settings are warranted, while in others less aggressive settings are needed, which often depends on size of the deployment and resources available in various components.

BigFix Client Settings Recommendations:


Default: 10 days (10)

Recommendation: 31 days (31)


Default: Disabled (0)

Recommendation: Enabled (1)


Default: 10MB (10)

Recommendation: 200MB (200) or more
