#25081 closed defect (fixed)

use get_uptime() consistently

We have this nice function get_uptime() that shields the global variable stats_n_seconds_working from the rest of the Tor files.

But then we undermine that by saying

extern long stats_n_seconds_working;

in main.h and we just start using that variable directly all over.

There are a few lonely users of get_uptime().

We should move everybody over to using get_uptime, and get rid of the scary extern.

(Also check out how we're *writing* to the extern variable, in hibernate.c. There's no way that could confuse anybody down the road!)

It's my first time contributing to Tor Project, but I think I've done this ticket.

I did a small refactor:
1- stats_n_seconds_working is not extern anymore. Because of this, all direct accesses to it were changed to get_uptime() or reset_uptime() calls.
2- reset_uptime() sets stats_n_seconds_working to zero.

Please take a look at my patch here

That's fine, extra commits aren't a big deal.
Did you run "make check" on your patch?

comment:6 Changed 12 months ago by valentecaio

Yes. Actually, I ran a "make test-full" and it seems that everything is ok.

Patch lgtm. Thanks for writing it! Let's merge this once the 0.3.4.x merge window is open (should be next week.)

comment:8 Changed 11 months ago by nickm

(when we merge it, we'll need to make "stats_n_seconds_working" be declared static in src/or/main.c.)
