    Hello,

    Does anyone know how often the wsus clients contact with the server to download the updates?

    I don’t see any parameter in the wsus console regarding that.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a setting in the WSUS console as to time and day to look for updates.

    That’s for the WSUS server contacting the upstream server (or Microsoft). Client check frequency is through Group Policy – IIRC from 1 hour to 23 hours

    By default, the Windows Update client checks for updates every 22 hours.

    Or you can force it by using the command wuauclt /detectnow or UsoClient startscan on Windows 10 systems.
