Description Michael Crawford (ali3nx) 2004-02-24 07:39:28 UTC
10 MBit Slackware box @ Fdcservers in chicago. contributed by, and BetasIRC Network Staff. If the crontab needs an adjustment or anything looks out of date I am the Senior admin and any needed adjustments could be made. I have been attempting to rsync update for the last 1~2 weeks and the server is stable with excellent uptime and gets 1.6MB/s from the tds rsync mirror.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Michael Crawford (ali3nx) 2004-03-03 20:23:25 UTC
Additional server details are as follows.

3ghz Pentium4
512MB ram
2x 80gb disk
80gb dedicated disk for the mirror accessable via httpd

Mirror is rsync updated via cron

0, 30, * * * * root rsync -u -r --delete-after /distfiles

I was originally using the rsyncd but it appears the connection was blocked... i'm unaware of any reasoning for this. Thanks Mike Crawford

EliteitMinds Technologies is proud to be a gentoo contributor. Thanks for everything. couldn't hae done it without gentoo linux

Thanks for helping out Gentoo. I have added your mirror to our list at Please start synching from as the email I have sent to you instructs. We would like to add you to the gentoo-mirrors Mailing List, as we send our notifications of updates, releases, and changes in policy to the mirrors. Once again, thanks for the hardware and bandwidth!

For Infrastructure,

P.S. Please comment on this bug about the rsync mirror. I am getting an unknown host for Thanks!

here's a dig from another box on the rsync mirror lan... i made some adjustments to my master zone hope this helps. i'll forward the zone to my .de zone slave right away so there's no conflicts or stale entries. I affected the crontab changes on the file mirror box at about 1:30 am pst, april 19th and it's currently updating... the routing to oregon isn't as glorious as MTU or tds but the box has been up for a month so i don't estimate there being any interruptions for the forseeable future... If there's anything else i can do for gentoo i'm sure BetasIRC and EliteitMinds Technologies would be happy to consider requests.

i perm fixed my rsync dns.
stage1 gentoo 14 ip dedi
120gb storage
10 connection max as an initial safeguard
server stats available here
max total aggregate burst to date this month is 16,000KB/s
if the rsyncd isn't too hoggy i'll add connections
Comment 9 Michael Crawford (ali3nx) 2004-06-15 04:39:56 UTC
Just *finally* =/  got 2 decent servers in a dc that are running my mirrors. Requesting axx to rsync1 for my rsyncd and if infra could change the official listing to EliteitMinds Technologies thad be sooper. distfiles is on 100MBit gbp4 chicago. same dc as the last mirror. rsync.* same dc. My 1.4 TB gentoo server in california   was unavailable for ftp or http traffic however i may move rsync back to cali after some repairs from a bunk secondary hard drive failure.
serveradmin's contact email has changed also to for the mailing list.

Dns changes affected to reflect new hosts @ 4:40 am pst -08:00
Comment 10 Michael Crawford (ali3nx) 2004-07-01 02:42:44 UTC
