Just thinking out loud -
widehat is used as an http and an rsync mirror. For http, it
participates as any other mirror in the infrastructure. For rsync, it
is used by people who run non-public (shadow) mirrors.
http – nice to have, but probably a drop in the ocean. Plenty of other
and bigger http mirrors for individual users.
rsync – for shadow mirrors. Benefit - by widehat being external instead
of running on pontifex, we make more bandwidth available for public
Thorsten ran some nice stats last night, showing a daily rate of
200-300Mbit/s, with peaks at up to 500Mbit/s. The monthly average over
the last 6 months is around 230Mbit/s.
Instead of improving on the widehat setup, maybe we should consider
getting some more bandwidth for stage.o.o? I don't know what is
available in the Nürnberg offices, but around here, a 1Gbit/s fibre
link is 60/month. (more if you want a business SLA).
Yes, "Salt" also offer 10Gbit at 50/month, but I have my doubts about
that one :-) (fix IP, uptime, actual thruput).
