Thanks. We have scripts in place that notify us of the outages. So this is a
known issue but considered non-priority since sa-update will automatically use
one of the other update providers if a different one is down.

Regards,
KAM

Kevin, thanks for the insights. I'm not so sure this should be set as RESOLVED
FIXED however, as it obviously isn't fixed:

Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2012 00:43:06 -0800 (PST)
http: GET http://daryl.dostech.ca/sa-update/asf/1291150.tar.gz request failed:
500 Can't connect to daryl.dostech.ca:80 (timeout):
Can't connect to daryl.dostech.ca:80 (timeout) LWP::Protocol::http::Socket:
connect: timeout at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.4/LWP/Protocol/http.pm line 51.

Possibly RESOLVED WONTFIX would be more appropriate?

Also: do you know if this issue is specific to certain times of the day (e.g.
should I change my cronjob to run sa-update at a different time)? How do I
squelch the LWP error output (sa-update has no --quiet equivalent) aside from
piping it to the equivalent of grep -v?

If this kind of transient error is considered acceptable, then I would advocate
that sa-update should trap the LWP error condition either through
$ref->is_error() verification or using eval {}; (if needed) and not complain on
these types of errors (but make sure to complain in the case that all mirrors
fail, of course!).

Agreed.

I don't, sorry.

sa-update 2>&1 > /dev/null would work.

I agree. I run sa-update -D and didn't care about the copious information. Are
you running sa-update more than once a day? If so, that's largely unnecessary.

Low priority but this would be good polish.

Keeping my reply simple: we run sa-update once a day, at 00:40 Pacific Time.
