The Mirror Service

Overview

The Config Server service does not clone or pull updates from external Git repositories directly. Within a PCF foundation, a “mirror service” makes a full mirror of each Git repository (“R1”, “R2”, “R3”) used by a Config Server service instance. The Config Server service instance, in turn, clones repositories from this mirror rather than cloning from the external Git server directly.
