Bandwidth Authority

Tasks/Tickets

Initially planned SoP tasks

  • [ ] implement features we wanted in torflow in sbws instead (1 week)
    • [ ] bwauth code needs to be smarter about failed circuits #16559
    • [X] assign the 10-second client timeout as the time for failed circuits? (this was fixed by pastly)
    • [ ] at least publish failure rates #7281
    • [ ] Understand how accurate the bandwidth authority estimates are #7177
  • [ ] integration tests (1 week)
  • [X] a practice transition in the test network (1 week, but split up)
    • [X] set up torflow
    • [X] set up sbws
    • [X] compare and switch
  • [ ] work little-t tor needs (3 weeks)
    • [X] report version of bwscanners in votes #3723
    • [ ] stop relays reporting zero observed bandwidths #24250
    • [ ] relays should regularly do a larger bandwidth self-test #22453
    • [ ] bandwidth testing circuits should use guards sometimes #19009
    • [ ] report bandwidth more often on test networks #17036
    • [X] report bandwidth less often on large, public relays #24104
  • [ ] non-essential tickets like https://github.com/pastly/simple-bw-scanner/issues/77 and https://github.com/pastly/simple-bw-scanner/issues/48 (2 weeks) - [ ] if time and motivation

We created and worked on other tickets since this list was proposed.

PF

Initially planned:

  • [ ] compared total consensus weights across bandwidth authorities (#25459)
  • [ ] understand how accurate bandwidth authority measurements are (#7177)
  • [ ] find over-weighted relays (#24045, #10791)
  • [ ] map consensus weight vs bandwidth in votes (#24834)
  • [ ] provide bwauth votes via the directory protocol (#21377)
  • [ ] make authorities without bandwidth scanners vote flags based on measured bandwidths (#11327)
  • [ ] reset uptimes / bandwidths when a relay changes IP address (#22308 / sbws #154)
  • [ ] analyse and fix a bug in authority time known (#19162)
  • [ ] some bandwidth weight cases not matching the spec (#20284)
  • [ ] fix DirAuth weights for other relays, or stop them using other relays (#13297)
