Eric,
Missed that.
It's your site so I'm sure you aren't wrong. Smile

Still would be interested to find out how I can see where mirrors point to in general.
Cheers
Dave

Hi aarf,

Yup..I us those for logins...what we are doing is another method.

As of today the logs show a big drop in bandwidth (the new setup will take time to watch and to see the actual changes/logs/bans etc).

If we can maintain around 50-70gb/day that will be sufficient I would think.

Eric

Hi Eric, just trying to download a 40mb kernel from CA and its downloading at 20kbs, and I tried to use axel at 4 connections and It limited me to just one, so its a 33min download for 40MB. Is that also the new max speed? Are there any other mirrors with the source files? www.puppylinux.asia/ doesn't have the sources files, maybe that could be a mirror. Well thanks again and I don't mean to be a pain.

Just to clear this up , by "all of our stuff " I meant "our" as in all the puppies users and pup builders . Not just Macpup. We (Macpup) also have pups at softpedia and opera has been mirrored by lots of other sites and Torrent downloaders.

I just wanted to say thanks !!! thats all...

There are no limits to speed, just number of connections. I am able to use 4-5 connections and it works great.

Macpup has three download mirrors on the main website. But, DW takes the first one (Puppylinux.ca) and gives a direct link on the announcement. Since .ca is the first one, it gets most of the hits.

A big thanks to Eric and John for the Puppylinux.ca repository. As far as I have researched dedicated / virtual dedicated servers, I have not seen any hosts that could give us a freedom to use 43TB in a month. If at all they did, they would charge us like $1000 a month or more.

The shared hosts that claim unlimited space / bandwidth are just using this to market their hosting. They can never meet that claim.

check this
https://code.launchpad.net/~aarf/+junk/unique

it says it will mirror
http://puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles

if/ when it does perhaps macpup and hacao and teenpup can add an extra mirror link for their downloads

@runtt,Prit,
Ok..I get it now.

@aarf...don't think so unless they have been naughty.

@ttuuxxx...I only get one connection here as well..dunno but it's set to 5

@Thom,
I think the vast majority use 1 connection but there were some that tried 20-30 and more (also some with thousands)...that's why it's changing as there is a limit on total connections as you are prolly aware as every server has limits.

I need to read back and catch up....Eric

If it were me paying for the bandwidth, I'd either severely restrict the number of connections anyone can use.

Hi Thom,

Yup that's what we are doing. Finding a balance is our plan.... so users can get files without the hogs and allow a good experience for all.

I have seen that "503 server is busy" was showing up far to often..thus the changes.

Maybe I can pick your brain as I'm aware you do this as well..Eric

There ain't much to pick(if I was on the water now, I'd tell ya it's like picking crab meat when the crabs are "light"). Be happy to do that, but not in the forum.

You provide a very valuable service to the community, and have every right to manage the resources to insure that the maximum number of folks cab be serviced. (Oh my....it's a good thing we're not talking about houses of ill-repute).

yep another day and downloading another kernel and 30mins for 40MB @ 20kb/s, I'm limited to 1 connection only on the server which is strange, and I'm amazed at the number of connections Eric mentioned that some users were using, that's just wrong. up to 5 is a good number. Or even up to 3 would be really good right about now Smile.
