Reflector is a script which can retrieve the latest mirror list from the MirrorStatus page, filter the most up-to-date mirrors, sort them by speed and overwrite the file /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.

Installation

Install the reflector package which is available in the official repositories.

Usage

Warning: Please back up your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file first

First back up your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

# cp -vf /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.backup

The following command will filter the first five mirrors, sort them by speed and overwrite the file /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist:

# reflector --verbose -l 5 --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

The following command will verbosely rate the 200 most recently synchronized HTTP servers, sort them by download rate, and overwrite the file /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist:

# reflector --verbose -l 200 -p http --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

To see all of the available commands, run the following command:

# reflector --help
Warning: Make sure the mirror list does not contain strange entries before syncing or updating with pacman.
