[CentOS-mirror] Question about short Downtime of a mirror

Anthony Somerset <anthony at somersettechsolutions.co.uk>

Yum FastestMirror plugin picks the fastest mirror out of a list provided from it, in the event of a mirror being offline it picks the next fastest and tries from there until it exhausts the list of mirrors it has cached or succeeds

CentOS is fairly automated like that

the other thing is that the mirror list checker will also remove your mirror from the list temporarily if it cannot connect to stop serving bad mirrors

Kind regards,
