simba requires RoPkg::Simba
There are many institutions that offer mirroring services to the community. Most
of them use shell scripts to synchronize content with the master servers. This
approach has some major limitations:
- Difficult maintenance
- No useful reports
- No data presented to the final user
- and more
Simba was created to be the mirroring tool and to get more control over the
mirrored content and (most important) more control over the reports you can
generate using the mirrored content data. Using Simba, you can:
- Create web pages with mirrors status
- Create web pages with mirror details
- Generate RSS feeds
- Generate Google sitemaps
- Generate rsync configuration files
- and more
Simba is extensible and has a dynamic plugin system. If you have some knowledge
of perl, you can write your own plugins and extend Simba as you wish.
simba has a few command line parameters.
