Re: Fwd: [mirror] Suboptimal (for mirrors) download pattern by opensuse clients

For the chunked downloads a too small size for the chunks still would

maybe we can start with optimizing there and generate Metalink files
with a much bigger chunk size?

I think the checksum block/chunking should be disconnected from the download chunking.

Checksum chunk size might well vary over time, and optimal download chunk size might vary depending on connections and conditions, so decoupling them is likely the best way forward if the chunking is to be kept.

I'd say go for the easy way of downloading the file in parts that you see fit, and afterwards do the checksum.
