During a regular check, there was unusual bandwidth usage on my
mirror. I figured out it was (at least) 2 IPs from China keeping
access the same file for at least 4 hours.
It was 8-9am in my time zone (UTC+8).
As the usage was unusually high, it also caused my server to restart.

Due to this reason, sorry but I'd like to block listing of my mirror in China.

thanks for sharing, and sorry for the inconveniences! Does this problem persist?


We have Chinese IPs blocked for over 2 years, as the number of connections from Chinese IPs and their bandwidth usage was extreme.

I guess China needs at least two or three complete mirrors within the country, which host most of the popular free software. I advise Chinese members of this list to work on improving the overall status of mirrors in China.
