I get it as the right column says whether it was possible to do the probe
(on merlin, it says it was possible to probe the status all the time) and
the left column says what the age was at the last probe- i.e. what is the
result of successful probe . So acording to the stats my mirror is 2.3 days
outdated but


says Wed Aug 30 09:38:01 EDT 2006 - that mean it's synced.

When 3.8 and 4.4 were out, I got 2 or 3 times a message that the sync
script is already running - that mean that rsync takes more then 1hour as I
run the sync script hourly.
