I have a new mirror, and set up my mirror following the instructions 
that were sent to me.  I use the following command:
rsync --quiet --recursive --links --perms --times --devices --delete 
--timeout=300 gentoo@××××××××××××××××××××××.org::gentoo 

I did this and noticed that my rsync was going painfully slow (i.e. 
taking several minutes per package).  Since it has not completed a sync 
in days, I stopped the sync and ran my old sync script (using  It is syncing just as fast as ever.  This is not a 
bandwidth issue on my end according to all of the tests I have run.  I 
ran traceroute and got a successful route to with ~52 
ms ping times.  There is not much latency between the machine and 
myself, but the syncing is absurdly slow.  Am I doing something wrong?  
Is there anything that can be done about this?  Any help you can offer 
would be great.
