SIMBA(8) User Contributed Perl Documentation SIMBA(8)

NAME

simba

VERSION

0.8.4

SYNOPSIS

simba [-c|--config <configuration file] [--callbacks|-p] [--help|-h] [mirror_name]

PREREQUISITES

simba requires RoPkg::Simba

DESCRIPTION

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.
