Unavailable, overloaded

Hello,
since we have enabled and resumed the updates the main server was overload. Besides the extremely poor performance the mirrors are unable to synchronize in time.
To be able to return to a minimal usable state we will need to shutdown the web server to be provide bandwidth for the mirrors synchronization.
We also need to freeze the updates until we have a solution for the network bottleneck.

Thanks

Couldn't you use BitTorrent to sync?

About the mirrors synchronization I an not aware of a bittorrent rsync alike utility.
For the regular deb installs there is an apt support package, but is not installed by default and I am not sure how stable it is.

Thanks

Hey folks. High performance mirror is up and running. It syncs every hour, has good bandwidth, and is reliable. Courtesy the Avaneya project.

Thank you very much, Kip. I was also considering setting up my own mirror for the very same reliability reasons.

João, would you consider putting a list of mirrors up on your main site to allow others access when your own repositories go down?
