Bouncer is a database driven mirror management app that has three main components - a bounce script, a sentry script to check mirrors and files for integrity and a set of web-based administration tools.

Project Status


  • MirrorNetwork - discussion about the copy of Bouncer currently in use at Mozilla and ideas and brainstorming of how to improve the process, whether it involves Bouncer or not.
  1. Sentry has many options for tests, testing schedules, trouble notifications and reports. What should be used? See the Scheduling and Reporting sections on this page:
  2. Sentry runs from one machine. What happens if that machine loses its connection to the network - suddenly all mirrors are marked bad because they're unreachable?
