the amount of bandwidth to my relay node seems to have dropped off suddenly. There are potentially many reasons for this. Any suggestions for things to investigate?

kernelcorn
zmanian: did it go offline recently?
zmanian
I've been running the relay for about a year but it did recently have a few days of downtime
same id keys etc
kernelcorn
you can check the consensus weights/probabilities of your relay. It probably dropped in response due to that downtime.
Tor directory authorities have lowered your router's consensus weight (and thus the probability of selection in a user's circuit) because of the unavailability. Your router should rebuild that over time though.
zmanian
makes sense
Peng
Atlas or globe should have a consensus weight graph, i think
kernelcorn
both do
velope
with days of downtime, it will take a very long time to regain former averages
         

zmanian
cool. thanks!
velope
in this situation some people just start over with new keys. up to you, though.
kernelcorn
that does have the possibility of making it worse though
personally I'd just keep with the same keys and not change anything, but like velope said it's up to you.
zmanian
I was just trying to figure out if I needed to go looking for a bandwidth bottleneck
I'll let the consensus do as it wants
kernelcorn
most of the time the bottleneck is either your Internet link, or it's your CPU
either this is a fluke, or ~6000 new Tor nodes just entered the network: https://metrics.torproject.org/relayflags.html
the numbers of nodes with the Fast, Guard, and Exit flags also jumped too
TvdW
kernelcorn: probably a fluke then, the consensus has ~6500 relays right now.
arma
tvdw: it is a metrics bug. karsten is working on it.
in retrospect we should have filed a ticket, so people could point to the ticket
but it would say what i just said :)
notbutthead
was the "cypherpunks" account disabled on trac ?
i'm unable to log in, or made some mistake, 3 times /o\
arma
yeah, i think it was
jerks log in and change the password
there, i think i fixed it.
Peng
wow
notbutthead
... :/ ok thanks
Peng
That is petty and awful
arma
in theory we would patch trac to make it harder
but that involves people wasting time on trac
iTaskmanager
sup! :D
How do I change the IP for Tor? > Linux Server reject
kernelcorn
iTaskmanager: I don't quite understand. Why do you need to change your IP?
iTaskmanager
kernelcorn: I don't want use my Host-IP.
kernelcorn
well you can certainly hide your IP using Tor
first, install Tor. It should be in the repositories.
Then you can point SSH or whatever else you need at the SOCKS5 proxy at localhost:9050
iTaskmanager
kernelcorn: Uhm. I have a Dedicated Server with Debian Jessie. On this server I installed Tor as Reject.
I don't want use Tor for myself. :p
kernelcorn
what do you mean by "Tor as Reject"?
iTaskmanager
Exit Policy: Reject (reject *:*)
         

kernelcorn
ohhh, you've set up a non-exit relay
iTaskmanager
+
:)
arma
kernelcorn
there's an option to bind Tor to a different IP. It's in the manpage, one sec.
iTaskmanager
Thank you!
arma
"address x.y.z.a" and "outboundbindaddress x.y.z.a"
kernelcorn
look in https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en. That page has the same content as the manpage.
iTaskmanager
arma: I can only find "OutboundBindAddress xyz" and I've already entered. Where can I find "address xyz"?
arma
you just type it in
iTaskmanager
Hm ok.
arma
'man tor' tells you many more options
iTaskmanager
Kuma: Do I need to enter this twice ("address xyz")? 1x IPv4/1x IPv6. I use "OutboundBindAddress xyz" indeed twice.
Peng
iTaskmanager: "Address" is only for your IPv4 IP
iTaskmanager
How can I check whether the new IP is used? "netstat | grep 9001" Show me still the name server.
kernelcorn
iTaskmanager: wait an hour then check your relay in globe.torproject.org
iTaskmanager
I do this already. :) Thanks!
cacahuatl
`netstat -n`
(netstat is deprecated, should be using ss, e.g. `ss -tlnp` (tcp, listening, numeric, program))
iTaskmanager
Don't seem to be working. > "LISTEN 0 128 *:9001 *:* users:(("tor",pid=4618,fd=8))"
arma
'address' will make outside tors connect to you on that other address
and outboundbindaddress will make your connections be from that other address
binding to 0.0.0.0 (aka "*") locally is still fine. unless it isn't?
iTaskmanager
arma: On globe the host IP is displayed. I want to get a different IP appears. :p
cacahuatl
that's the 'address' option then, where you tell others you can be reached at.
n.b. from the manual 'This IP address is the one used to tell clients and other servers where to find your Tor server; it doesnt affect the IP that your Tor client binds to.'
iTaskmanager
Thank you.
arma
what's the relay in question? i can look it up on moria1
iTaskmanager
Do you want my relay Nickname or what do you mean? :)
arma
kernelcorn
iTaskmanager: FYI, arma runs a directory authority
cacahuatl
the fingerprint is probably what they're after
iTaskmanager
Sure. > "C34B8495C75FCA1C58CAABC46A6AE87E1CC6F5C3"
arma
router iTaskmanager 5.196.43.239 9001 0 9030
iTaskmanager
arma: Thank you very much!
arma
looks like this is different from your old IP address (in net 94))
iTaskmanager
Yes.
arma
great.
iTaskmanager
:)
kernelcorn
arma: did you query moria1 via a GET request or similar?
or is that from an internal database?
arma
i looked at its cached-descriptors.new file
kernelcorn
ah ok
arma
but in theory you should be able to ask it directly too
http://128.31.0.34:9131/tor/server/fp/C34B8495C75FCA1C58CAABC46A6AE87E1CC6F5C3
there it is
kernelcorn
thanks, I couldn't remember the syntax
iTaskmanager
arma: Will there displayed the reverse appears if you have one?
@moria
arma
i don't understand
iTaskmanager
nvm. I'll see it later.
Globe is updated now. But there is still the old IP. :p
Takes at anything else?
kernelcorn
it may take some time for Globe and everyone else to update to the new IP
iTaskmanager
Ok. :)
