Thank you Carlos, very useful to know the issue is more widespread

If it's useful, here on our sync times are about an

opensuse-full is one of the larger modules, so it's unlikely

We do opensuse-full-really-everything, every 4h. So it better behave...

It's always via IPv6, so the significantly longer rtt is bad. BTW, your IPv6
seems to be bad in other aspects, I've seen complaints here a few times about losing it.

To satisfy my curiosity Carlos, can you double check and confirm
you're using stage.o.o, and not rsync.o.o?

Confirmed right now. Months ago, because of the slowness, I tried to use
rsync.o.o until a user complained that our repo was very behind. I switched
back to stage.o.o and won't change it anymore.

A master repository of a big distro like yours with less than 1Gb/s of
bandwidth is substandard :-( This is only feasible if you let only tier 1
mirrors access it!!

Note also that increasing bandwidth is only one element of the chain. If the
machine doesn't have enough ram to hold the directory info it won't stand the
load of all the rsync disk scans. stage.o.o must be beefy, both in ram and disk
