It depends on your use-case. Can you please post more details about your use-case?
Till 8.5, there was advanced repeater installer. Now, in 8.6, there is no advanced repeater installed (you can use the 8.5 version installer). Hence, only one repeater type is left.
Also, it would depend more on the use case..
I opned an issue for the same question. The BMC anwer was: "up on version 8.5, the adv. Repeater will work" but we recommand to use the standard Repeater.
- the adv. repeater uses an old technology not more supported, I think (marimba...). The adv. repeater caches the packages, so you don't need to transfer the blpackages from the adv. fileserver for any package. It's done just the first time you run the blpackageJob and after that it will be transfered directly from the adv.repater to the targetserver.
- Std. Repeater:
I analyzed the std repeater and found that, the std repeater caches too .... so I don't know why 2 technologies that do the same Job?
What issue # is this ?
The ARS lets you specify bandwidth usage rules, so maybe only 20% of your bandwidth is used to replicate payloads from the central to remote site. there’s no capability to do this w/ the normal repeater, but you can use OS level QoS settings to enforce the same thing.
