[CentOS-mirror] Mirror List questions

I have periodically seen heavy delays; I've been unable to identify
the cause or even a pattern to begin troubleshooting.

Right now, it may be due to Ubuntu's release of 9.10, as the same
machine is also a Ubuntu mirror.  Periodically I see heavy load on
that, and as many as 50 connections in initial SYN state.  I'm
generally able to serve 150 clients at a time, and it appears apache
doesn't do the "sorry, try again later" message.

Any suggestions I'd be glad to implement.  I really feel the hardware
is underperforming.  Its  a Gentoo system with an Adaptec AAC hardware
RAID board, 5 SATA disks (about 1TB usable), and 2.4Ghz P4 Intel
