8 This document describes the way to implement a Mageia Mirror.
9
10 1) Prerequisite
11 ---------------
12
13 The expected size of the mirror is around 700GB.
14
15 You need rsync software to synchronise the tree.
16
17 2) Official source
18 ------------------
19
20 For public mirror, we encourage you to use one of our Tier1 mirror.
21
22 Theses servers synchronises the tree directly from the Mageia rsync server.
23
24 o rsync://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/mageia/
25 located in Paris (France)
26 o rsync://ftp.LinuxCabal.org/Mageia/
27 located in Lucern (Switzerland)
28
29 3) Rsync options
30 ----------------
31
32 Ensure you're using at least these options:
33
34 -a -H
35
36 We appreciate if, in addition, you also add the options:
37
38 --delete-after -S
39
40 Don't use the compression and checksum options, they create excessive
41 load on the remote server
42
43 4) Automated update procedure
44 -----------------------------
45
46 The tree must be synchronized at least every 2 hours.
47
48 Please ensure that another rsync process is not started while a first
49 one is still running. Use a lock file.
50
51 5) Registering your mirror
