#26063 closed defect (implemented)

Disable the per-second timer when we can

Reviewer: dgoulet Sponsor: Sponsor8-must


Once the children of #25375 are merged, there will be nothing left in second_elapsed_callback that needs to happen once per second when Tor isn't running. Once we're in that position, we can disable this callback whenever..

  1. we are completely hibernating (state == DORMANT) OR the network is disabled.
  2. The controller is not waiting for any per-second events.

This change will require some related refactoring.

Two comments basically about commit message confusion. Going in needs_revision just for those but should be merge_ready once clarified/fixed.

The rest looks solid to me!

I'm wondering also once we merge this, we should probably go over the run_scheduled_events() function and assess all the net_is_disabled() checks in there. That callback will NOT run if DisableNetwork is set so that part we can remove but the slight difference is that we use we_are_hibernating() so technically some of the events in the second callback can get called if our hibernation is not "SHUTDOWN". I bet most of them shouldn't run...
