apt-spy.conf - configuration file for apt-spy(8)
apt-spy.conf is the configuration file for apt-spy(8). It consists of
a series of area labels, followed by a list of countries belonging to
that label. Whitespace is ignored.
Comments may be added anywhere, and begin with the hash (’#’)
character. Once a hash character is encountered, the rest of the line
A label consists of any alphanumeric characters, and ends with a colon
character (’:’). The label must be on a line by itself (excluding
Following a label are a list of country codes (one per line) of
countries belonging to that label.
Each country has a unique two-letter country code corresponding to its
top level domain identifier. This is the same as the ISO3166 code.
You can find the country code for a specific country either by looking
at /var/lib/apt-spy/mirrors.txt, or by looking at the commented
examples in the default apt-spy.conf.
Labels cannot exist within labels. The end of a label section is
signaled by the start of a new one, or by the end of file.
Any valid label existing in apt-spy.conf can be specified to apt-spy
using the ’-a’ option. apt-spy will then proceed to benchmark the
mirrors in the list of countries associated with that label.
This is an example of a valid apt-spy.conf file:
GB # United Kingdom
US # United States
There is a default configuration file included with apt-spy. For
further examples, and for a list of valid country codes, please refer
