I use GLPI/FusionInventory to deploy WPKG packages. The latest version
of FusionInventory's management console shows you the deployment
progress as graphs for each task (as a half-circle showing percentage of
clients successfully updated, ready to update, currently updating, and
I configure FusionInventory deployment tasks as a WPKG
"/install:<package> /quitonerror" command, which allows FusionInventory
to show WPKG's error output in case of failure. It's usually enough,
but sometimes I have to go fetch the full log in a share.
Best of both worlds, really. Of course, that means that I don't really
use /synchronize as a regular command. I basically use it only when I
first install a new machine, or to update a machine that hasn't seen the
light of network for a while. Also some OUs, using WPKG-GP. In fact,
with 250 clients and many, many use cases, the WPKG profile management
upon which /synchronize relies would be too complex for me to maintain
by hand. So I only have the 'new-client' profile, which
installs/maintains a basic stack. All the rest is managed by GLPI/FI
deployments as kind of WPKG wrappers.
With your exemple (44 clients), I'd guess you've got enough machines
(and probably servers, printers and switches) to justify using something
