#348 closed defect (Fixed)

Excessive loggin at warning

Description

Actual version is 23, not 24. Installed with vidalia package pre-made for Mac Os X.

Problem: I'm getting LOTS of log messages like:

Oct 25 08:17:16 stbmac Tor[14520]: add_nickname_list_to_smartlist(): Nickname list includes 'serifos' which is known but down.\n
Oct 25 08:17:17 stbmac Tor[14520]: add_nickname_list_to_smartlist(): Nickname list includes 'lefkada' which is known but down.\n

These go away if I tell my system to stop using tor. I get these every time
something on my system that pays attention to my HTTP proxy settings tries
to open a connection.

In my config file, I have EntryNodes and ExitNodes set to a large set of
high bandwidth nodes located on my continent (as an attempt to make Tor run
faster -- it was too slow out of the box with no config help).

This isn't a recommended use case: you can really hurt your anonymity by using a set of servers different
from the one everybody else is using.

Nevertheless, it is an annoying behavior that should get fixed.

<nickm:#tor> a server goes down, we warn.
<nickm:#tor> it comes up, and goes down again, and we warn.

ah. so should we never warn a second time even if it flip-flops?

or just not warn in the first place as long as at least one of the items in

the list is acceptable? that seems smarter.

Fixed in r9574; fix will appear in Tor 0.1.2.8-rc. The new behavior is never to warn for individual node down-ness
in add_nickname_list_to_smartlist().
