I've noticed our rsyncs of fedora sometimes end up crawling along at

the sync could take several days, or even a week - although I'd imagine
the remote end would terminate the connection long before that.
In normal circumstances, we'd get anything between 5-10MB/s from
. I was thinking that a particular host in pool of
servers was having an issue, so I did an rsync from it directly,
however the speed was normal:
OK the load average on the servers is a bit up but the NFS throughput
looks about normal.. so I am not sure what is causing it yet. I will
investigate more on my side.
Could you look on your side for the following:
1) Can you give us an mtr from your host to dl05.fedoraproject.org
is one of the dl servers). Run for about 10 minutes.
2) Do this again while doing an rsync. Send us both at the end of those runs.
3) Can you try doing an rsync from the various dl servers to see if
there is one which is slow

These slow downs only seem to occur when we use dl.fedoraproject.org
if we switch to another host such as download-i2.fedoraproject.org
example, it remains stable.

Dublin, Ireland), but I wouldn't imagine this would cause such drastic
ms round trip time has little bearing anymore in bandwidth issues :(.
You can have an mid-stream which is throttling you down for some
reason (they don't think the next guy is paying them enough) or you
can have a bad cable somewhere which pings perfectly nicely but stops
