I rent a US server in NC and would like to mirror

Post#1 by shmu » 30 Aug 2013, 06:26

As the title says,
in NC I rent the following server:
Dual Core 2.3GHZ+
1GB RAM
300GB HDD
8TB bandwidth


my server ip is 64.187.227.21
my domain is www.tuxlinuxnews.com and I would rsync to www.tuxlinuxnews.com/porteus.

Can you provide me the rsync information, and I will be able to rsync 3+ times per day.

I really have found this project useful and this is the best way I can give back :D

@shmu
which web application are you using for your mirror?

At the moment im just having the directories listed, if you know an app that is great for sorting through mirrors though definitely let me know.

If you mean what im using to sync my mirror, im using rsync and lsyncd rsync + SSH daemon (basically just rsync)

If you mean what I use to manage my server I use WHM/cPanel licensed

The server is:
CentOS 5.9 x64
1GB Buffered ECC RAM
Dual Core (2.3ghz+)
8TB bandwidth
300GB HDD

I have to says that your server's network quality is too bad for me. Very unstable bandwidth. Bad peering with major ISPs. Not direct access to U.S Backbone.

The only good thing I see is the stability of ping.

You can even have 1PB (1024TB) of bandwidth available ... if your guests can't go over 1mbps even if they have each 100mbits fiber optic ... that's completely useless to have 1PB of available bandwidth.

its not meant as a primary mirror....
just for people on the East Coast. I dont know if you have more packages than Arch Linux but i never reach more than 8-10TB per month.

I guess its a good thing that everyone on this forum could download porteus with all packages at the same time and not reach 1PB bandwidth.......

besides the point, I can mirror you on my DS (not virtual):
unmetered bandwidth
4GB RAM
Intel i3 dual core
1TB HDD.
100Mbps
Im just saying I dont think that a backup server needs to be migrated there, I will if your looking for primary mirrors only, let me know.

Its windows based but I could use Deltasync to rsync

I am using Encode-Explorer; it is simple an fast, you need only the index.php file for it. A little bit configuration to suit your needs. Take a look at it here.
