ContactInfo not added with a SIGHUP

Tor version (git-4410634e67a43952).


Sending a SIGHUP (or a reload in arm, which does the same thing) fails to make the relay add contact details to the consensus. This was verified using globe. However, once I restarted said relays, the contact info appeared as soon as the next consensus was generated.

I have not tried modifying the ContactInfo contents to see if they are recognised with a SIGHUP/reload.

I investigated this issue briefly. The correct updated contact information was being shown on but not on Atlas or Globe. directly loads it's data from cached tor consensus files where as Atlas, Globe and Oniontip all source their data from Onionoo. It seems this particular issue is a bug in the Onionoo service rather than in the contact data being updated in the network consensus.

It seems like this issue may have been caused by the same Onionoo bug Karsten fixed in

There was indeed a bug with updating contact information, which is fixed by now. cypherpunks, can you attempt to reproduce the issue and write down exact timestamps of all your actions? If you can reproduce the issue, be sure to mention the relay fingerprint here. Thanks!
