Please help me understand where the
'stickyness' comes from.
In this context it means:
Once a client has redirected to a certain mirror, it is redirected to
the same mirror again on the next request, and not to another randomly
Obviously, the server checks for each request if the mirror actually has
the file, because otherwise it would send the client into the void.
Also, not all files can be trusted on the mirrors, some are not
redirected at all.
The association mirror id <-> client ip as memorized by the server)
times out after a certain time of inactivity (10 minutes I think).
Is the redirector pointing to a mirror once or issuing
a http redirect
for every request ?
For every request. Thus working on a file basis.
