Here's a question for you techies at Novell.

I created 2 test bundles as follows:

- 1 bundle with 1 file @ 35MB in size (total)
- 1 bundle with 400 files @ 35MB in size (total)

Assigned both bundles to the same machine, and tested delivery

1 bundle with 1 35MB file delivered in about 10-15 seconds
1 bundle with 400 files totalling 35MB in size took almost 10 minutes to deliver!

The ZenworksWindowsService during this time is doing excessive amounts of IO, way more than 35MB's worth...

Any explanation?

Currently to get round this i'm zipping the multiple files to 1 zip file, delivering the zip, then extracting it in the background, but this is not ideal.
