Description

My Tor client (v0.2.3.12-alpha-dev (git-f7e87f41f719f425)) configured to use moria1 as a bridge emitted these log messages this morning:

Mar 01 07:56:49.000 [notice] We stalled too much while trying to write 512 bytes to address [scrubbed].  If this happens a lot, either something is wrong with your network connection, or something is wrong with theirs. (fd 15, type OR, state 7, marked at command.c:1035).

I don't care about these messages. Users probably would care if they saw them.

Do we want to demote these messages to info level? If so, do we want to detect whether this is happening ‘a lot’ (probably based on the number of flaky destinations, or based on the fraction of destinations which are flaky) and complain more loudly about it?

Sounds good to me. Most of the time it happens is a false positive. It also happens e.g. when you suspend your laptop while a directory fetch is being launched.

It might even make sense to demote them in 0.2.3, and then think about an 0.2.4 feature to notice if it happens a lot.

Demoting unconditionally in 0.2.5, in commit a790454. Opened a new ticket (#11462) to re-promote if it happens a lot.
