# Distributed plan database for Linux?

Sometimes I have actually seen the note informing customers not to upgrade their databases frequently (i.e greater than daily) since that will certainly place a stress and anxiety also huge for the web servers. Additionally I recognize that it takes impressive equipments for such databases.

I am asking yourself if there is something like BitTorrent for package management? Or if there isn't, is it viable to have such a system?

(I'm thinking of a system where each customer maintains the plans that they have and also offer it in the very same style as BitTorrent.)

For apt : apt-transport-debtorrent. Keep in mind that you still require to get the plan checklist (i.e. apt-get update) from among the mirrors to make sure that it recognizes what plans are readily available.

Also, if this is within a company setup, you can arrangement neighborhood mirrors and/or proxies to relieve this trouble. There is no demand for a bittorrent in this way. If you are making use of a Debian centered circulation, you can currently simply make use of proper - cacher/apt - proxy to do it.

You can attempt establishing a type of apache based load balancer and also define numerous various mirrors as the "back" end Each time you strike your proxy a various actual mirror will certainly be struck, therefore spreading your demands amongst numerous mirrors.

Yet, the majority of mirrors just upgrade daily. A solitary matching work can be extensive, specifically when there is a huge upgrade. For mirror drivers greater than as soon as daily generally is ineffective, and also matching regularly places far more stress and anxiety on the upstream than a straightforward apt-get update.

Bear in mind, mirrors and also circulations are usually done on a volunteer basis. Those volunteers need to pay large dollars for transmission capacity, storage space, power, air conditioning, etc

I run a Debian mirror myself. Please, aid us out and also do not pound us also hard.

Indeed it is feasible and also certainly it exists, yet every one of the existing tasks are still simply experiments.

I located 2 intriguing documents:

So of course, it is feasible and also it is without a doubt an actually intriguing topic.
