So just imagine when you have 4Mbps and getting not even half a kbps
from the server and unable to even kill that update because if you do
the damn thing will restart from scratch from the same server and at
the same speed. That's the current situation here ! 200Kb/sec is
very fast compared to what yum serves us, there are server that fast
but yum will stick indefinitely with slow servers. And a fast server
today will be a slow one tomorrow depending on the ISP own evaluation
of the traffic pattern.
yes, and that is why statistics of mirrors are meaningsless
because of this fact my idea to give us a config-option
"dear yum, if the selected mirror provides lower than
500 KB/sek try another one because my line can 12 MB/sec"
keep also in mind that a usually fast mirror may have too
much load and that is why he is so slow - one reason more
to switch ASAP to another one
