Based on the mirror metadata, there's basically four tiers of traffic:
Substantial: F26, F25 (N, N-1)
Moderate: F24, F23 (N-2, N-3)
Still Chugging Along: F22, F21, F20 (N-4, N-5, N-6!)
Marginal: Everything else. (Even F8.)
"Substantial" totals something like 150k unique IPs per day.
"Moderate" totals ~ 60k.
"Still Chugging" totals ~ 40k
"Marginal" totals ~ 15k.
(For scale, all Fedora OS totals around 270k and all EPEL ~ 1.1m)
I think we already dropped F21 and earlier, right? I think F22 is
pretty obvious. Long tail aside, our upgrade update has been pretty
awesome recently, and I'm I'm leaning towards F23 as well, making the
policy simply "N through N-2".
The mirrormanager stats tell a slightly different story, with
updates-released-f21 getting hit like crazy -- I assume that's some
sort of automated process (with it all coming from one or several IPs).
Possibly the same thing is hitting F22. But if it's right that we
already dropped F21, we seem to be surviving this just fine and adding
F22 and F23 _probably_ won't hurt (right?).
The main thing is that those people are just checking.. and aren't getting
any updates so they are just as happy getting them from 8 servers or 100
servers. Yes some people may be asking for 'new' packages for those systems
but they are pretty much already all there. I don't see much bonus for
having the mirrors wanting to cover us drop because we are over 1 TB of
data in our what we want people to mirror. Especially as our disk usage may
go up with flatpacks and other image formats.
