My initial sync took a couple of days to bring down.  Something in the
neighborhood of 35Gb or there abouts.

Dear all,

I have been following the HowTo instructions for Mirroring, located at

My question is:
How long does it take to do the initial rsync?

I have ran the command
rsync -aqzH --delete msync.centos.org::CentOS .

twice and it seems to have timed out, obtaining more data at each run.

I then have ran the same command but with --no-blocking-io in order to
prevent it from timing out. Its been running for well over 16 hrs.

Would anyone know what I have done wrong?

Thanks in advance,
