ROS Mirror Puppet Manifest
This repo provides a way to easily mirror the ROS services.
The machine will need ~ 150 GB of disk space in the /mirror directory and as much bandwidth as you plan to pull.
This is tested on Ubuntu Precise LTS
How to Setup
Run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rubygems git sudo gem install puppet --no-ri --no-rdoc -v 3.8.7 sudo puppet module install puppetlabs/apache sudo puppet module install puppetlabs/rsync sudo puppet module install puppet-unattended_upgrades git clone https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/mirror.git cd mirror sudo puppet apply ros_mirror.pp --modulepath=/etc/puppet/modules:/usr/share/puppet/modules:.
Overnight the sync jobs will run and you can see that they are setup correctly by running:
sudo crontab -u rosmirror -l
If you want to accelerate the download process you can su to rosmirror and run the cron jobs. '''Make sure to run any of the jobs as user rosmirror''' And please do not remove the throttling so as not to overload the main servers.
How to Use
The above configuration has setup the mirrors such that on the localhost you can visit wiki.ros.org.example.com or docs.ros.org.example.com or packages.ros.org.example.com initially you will see an empty directory listing. After they mirroring processes have run you will see the mirrors of the sites.
The apache instance has virtual hosts setup such that it will respond to subdomains which match the ros domains. So the wiki will match anything wiki.ros.org.* and likewise docs.ros.org.* and packages.ros.org.*
To make this easily accessable to your network add a DNS entry for the names wiki.ros.org.myorganization.org which point to the installed server.
