Debian has appeared auto mirrors
by admin ·
In the Debian distribution appeared mirror redirector.
Now, instead of having to choose the closest / fastest mirror hands, you can just add sources-list line
and the package manager when accessing this resource will be automatically redirected to the best mirror. In addition to / debian can be specified and / debian-archive, and / debian-security, and / debian-backports, all the rest (except for CD – it is a redirector does not support).
Mirror selection is made according to several criteria:
- load (load balancing, announced the mirrors);
- geographical location;
- and others.
