You can just append "?mirrorlist" to a download link to see what mirrorbrain would do, e.g.:
Looking at that one, I do not see your mirror at all right now - this is something we should investigate. Darix, could you do so, please?
Forgot to say that our opensuse traffic dropped by approximately half since May. And the proportion of traffic that goes abroad didn't change. It could be that there are only half downloaders now but the change is too abrupt for this to be the reason.
My guess is mirrorbrain is working better then ever.
At GWDG, I also have seen less traffic than before at release moments, but ftp5.gwdg.de had the first 6 hours 2 gbit/s full. Then it went down to 1 gbit/s, and it is still there.
I've given 3 objective reasons for asking: - Andreas says that we don't appear in the mirrorlist but we should; - traffic has dropped here not only during releases but all the time. As I said, a 40% reduction since May; - it should not be because there are more mirrors around, because mirrorbrain doesn't show any from our side. There is a new one in Argentina but not in Brazil, and our stats show that the proportion of traffic going abroad didn't change. This means that Brazilian traffic dropped in the same proportion without any new mirror.
It could be that there are less downloads of opensuse now from Brazil. Novell people can compare the mirrorbrain stats of the last 3 months to see if it's true. I find it unlikely. The other possibility is that downloads from here are being sent to other mirrors, which they shouldn't.
