Status update and repository users count

We have managed to get the site/archive in an usable state after some improvements with infrastructure architecture changes. We are already publishing updates but we still have bandwidth constrains that may affect our availability.

I have been looking into the repository access log statistics and we have pretty impressive numbers.
Yesterday, there were 25144 unique IPs requesting the packages Index for lucid, 7272 for karmic. This was a single day count, it means that currently we have more than 30k users with the GetDeb repository.

I expect a lot of people will keep on Lucid (LTS) when Maverick is out, needing some upgrade, so this numbers are likely to increase. We will need to increase our current capacity.

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

Almost fully functional

Hello,
as you may have noticed the archive and site were already restore. The only unavailable component right now is the bridge between our build system and the new archive. We hope to resolve this on the next few days to resume regular updates.

Thanks for your patience.
