SCCM Package Distribution Monitor

If you’ve installed the ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Toolkit, you’ve probably used the handy “Distribution Point Job Queue Manager” to monitor your distributions.  But you can also monitor them with Powershell if you wish to.  Here’s a simple script that will do just that.  It will identify the package ID, name and type, the distribution points that are currently receiving the distribution, when the distribution started, the total size of the package, the remaining size to be distributed, and overall progress of each individual distribution.

Note that ConfigMgr does some post-processing before the actual distribution is started, so if you try to monitor a distribution immediately after you distributed it, you might see no results.  One way to check when it’s started is to search for ‘Created package transfer job to send package … to distribution point’ in the distmgr.log on the site server.  Thinking about it, that could probably be scripted too, but that’s for another day 🙂
