statistics on the number of image downloads


Recommended Posts

Is there any statistics on the number of image downloads ? It is interesting to understand that there may be images that no one downloads. Perhaps then you can exclude them from the regular build and not waste resources on such images (models) by removing them from the build system.

Since infrastructure upgrade from single server to group of servers we are running round robin re-director around servers. Since current capacity is overkill, we actually don't need to worry about that. We have statistics in some form - @lanefu can provide more data - I hope we have it :) We have no info from downloads from torrents or direct download from mirrors.

 

Image build targets are manually adjusted in this file: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/targets.conf 

 

Since images are built multi threaded and we have lots of CPU cores / enough memory to build 50-60 images at once, this is also not most critical problem. But building u-boot, kernel and BSP is only partially parallel ATM. Its planned to fix this problem and, probably next year, upgrade build infrastructure.

 

There are two levels of download infrastructure:

 

first - cca. 600 images)

- fast servers

- latest stable images shared around servers

- torrent network

 

second - several thousands)

- slow servers

- archived images

- test images

- beta repository

 

There is plan to move beta to faster connections.
