Mirroring of UMD Repositories

We provide some basic information needed in order to mirror UMD repositories. Available repos:

    • for discussion: FORUM - mirror-egi - TO BE SET-UP

Repos size estimates

  • please see the content of the following file for insfo on available directories and their estimated sizes:

Using lftp

  • Depending on what repositories you want to mirror and the space you have available (see #Repos size estimates you can use something similar:
    • to create the mirror for the first time:

lftp -c mirror --verbose --exclude 'candidate/' --exclude '1/' --exclude '2/' http://repository.egi.eu/sw/production/umd/ ${LOCAL_DIR}

    • to removes any local packages that no longer exist on the source, and only downloads newer package versions from the host mirror:

lftp -c mirror –-only-newer --ignore-time -–delete --exclude 'candidate/' --exclude '1/' --exclude '2/' http://repository.egi.eu/sw/production/umd/ ${LOCAL_DIR}

Using wget

  • at the moment "wget -r" will not work, please use the lftp solution described above.

Using rsync

  • at the moment we do not offer a rsync server for UMD repositories
