Hi,

We’re using CentOS on various servers in Japan. Recently, I found that mirrorlist.CentOS.org returns servers in China. It makes “yum update” slow. This problem occurs on “update” repo.

Our tries and results are follows:

## “os” repository
$ curl “http://mirrorlist.CentOS.org/?release=6.5&arch=x86_64&repo=os”
http://www.ftp.ne.jp/Linux/packages/CentOS/6.5/os/x86_64/
http://ftp.tsukuba.wide.ad.jp/Linux/CentOS/6.5/os/x86_64/
http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/CentOS/6.5/os/x86_64/
http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/CentOS/6.5/os/x86_64/

## “updates” repository
$ curl “http://mirrorlist.CentOS.org/?release=6.5&arch=x86_64&repo=updates”
http://mirrors.hust.edu.cn/CentOS/6.5/updates/x86_64/
http://mirrors.yun-idc.com/CentOS/6.5/updates/x86_64/
http://CentOS.mirror.cdnetworks.com/6.5/updates/x86_64/
http://ftp.yzu.edu.tw/Linux/CentOS/6.5/updates/x86_64/
http://ftp.isu.edu.tw/pub/Linux/CentOS/6.5/updates/x86_64/
http://mirror.awanti.com/CentOS/6.5/updates/x86_64/

These results are same when we using “cc=jp” and “ip=(various IP
address that is recognized as Japanese by GeoIP)” options. Additionally, the mirrorlist returns correct list when we throw a request via IPv6.

I think the mirrorlist has wrong list of “update” repo for Japan. Are there any things that I’ve missed?

Thanks,

  • I verify that this is an issue, we will look to see if we can figure out why.

    All the other repos are working correctly (os, extras, CentOSplus etc.)
