Predictive Patching enables you to predict the success rate of your patching cycle.
Before deploying your actual patch cycle, you can receive a comprehensive analysis detailing your expected success rate as well as the areas of improvement that should be addressed to enhance the patching cycle's success.
Go to > Patches > Predictive Patching > Run
Predictive Patching Options
JetPatch can predict the success rate in one of the following options -
- Environment Prediction - Prediction is made on Operating Systems and/or Endpoint Groups. Prediction is considering the current moment (ie: "what would happen if I ran a Remediation Plan NOW").
Remediation Plan Prediction - Prediction is made on an existing Remediation Plan and considering Cycle Start Date and End Date. This will consider the Remediation Plan properties such as:
- Endpoint Groups
- Endpoints Maintenance Windows
- Patches actions
Predictive Patching Results
- Your predicted patching success rate
- The number of applicable endpoints that were involved in the prediction calculation.
- The number of applicable patches that were involved in the prediction calculation.
- The number of endpoints that require attention and cause a direct impact on the success rate.
The detailed breakdown is also scoped by:
- Operation System
- Smart Groups
