Debian 6 OVZ template

Postby jcaleb » Fri Aug 10, 2012 8:39 am

I have a small suggestion, but may not be needed by other power users. anyways, here it goes: for debian 6 ovz template, could it come pre-configured to point at the fastest mirror/location? I think it just have the default, that may be in US, Im not sure. But it is slow. What I did on mine is copy the sources.list from my KVM, because the installation from iso helps you select the best mirror.

Good suggestion :)

An updated template was prepared, I just had no time to test it and replace the old one :(

I am not sure of feasibility, but Uncle Sal, is it possible to host your own debian and ubuntu mirror ? That would be very fast and not consume external bandwidth much

It is possible, however, there are mirrors in the same datacenter in Italy it would be no change of speed and bandwidth is not a problem.
Uncle Sal thought of this problem earlier and I had similar issues with slow debian mirrors so did the templates, also changed time zone and a few other tweaks (eliminated samba...).
I can provide you one for testing ? Maybe say what else needs to be done.

Thanks Admin/Uncle. Can you share the entry? Maybe that one is faster than what I found on mine =)

Ah, nothing fancy, standard debian, ftp.it.debian.org.

I never change the repo mirror. I'm pretty confidence Prometeus network is fast with large pipe, so it shouldn't matter which repo I'm using.

Actually the ftp.debian.org may be the bottleneck, so switching to a different repository can make a lot of difference when you are doing a lot of upgrade :)
