I have done some homework on this, and i hope people would go through
it and respond with their suggestions.
* Space allocated 2.0 GB
* Mirroring only i386 binary packages.
* Gona to use rsync, as it seems to be the widely used one.
even with i386 binaries only, i dont believe 2gb will be adequate. the
iitm mirror includes sources and binaries for i386 only and it is 26gb.
daily update traffic is around 150-200 megabytes (100mb or so min, max
around 400mb). because of the directory structures used, it would be
madness to try anything other than rsync. the debian site has a sample
script which you can tune appropriately. you can use the netselect program
to find the 'fastest' site for you. we used to do from planetmirror in
australia but lately, that site has become too slow. australia is a good
bet since cron job run late at night ist are early morning in australia
but peak time in europe and usa - but that logic is not holding anymore.
we are mirroring from kernel.org and i am getting anything from 25 - 75
kilobytes per hour. i doubt if luggies will be interested in more details
- we can continue the thread in private.
