Application – Size?

Where can I find the size of the applications? I have also checked the addition column details available for applications, but I couldn’t find the size entry there either. I don’t know why the size column is not an option for the applications node in the ConfigMgr Admin console.

Read the following sections to find out where to find the size for all those workloads in Configuration Manager.

Distribution Point

You can get the size details of applications, packages, Boot Images, software updates, etc., from distribution point properties. But I don’t recommend using this method. Finding the correct DP to which this particular application is distributed is difficult.

Here you go! In my experience, the following is the best method for determining the Size of different workloads or deployment packages in SCCM.

  • Navigate to \Monitoring\Overview\Distribution Status\Content Status
  • Use the search bar to find the size of any deployment package, such as an Application, Task Sequence, Boot Image, or Software Update.
    • Check the Size column to get the size details of applications or any other workload.
