Re: What happens when I shut down my Tor-server?

OK, thanks for all your answer, I was a bit busy lately.

Skipping your questions, I pose the following ones.
        1) Which signal did you send tor to get it to shut down?


        2) If SIGINT, had ShutdownDelay seconds passed within the 30-minute
           period to which you referred?

ShutdownWaitLength you mean? It's left to default - 30s. So yes to
your question.

        3) Are there other network applications running on the same computer
           to which some/all of the traffic you claim to see could be


Basically I shut down the server with "/etc/init.d/tor stop". (the
SYSV-style init-script Debian supplies)

What I found was that there were still lot's of differents sources
trying to reach my node on various ports, including ORPort. Well, if
that'd run for 5 minutes I wouldn't have written this email, but after
30 minutes I was still receiving lot's of stuff.

However; I'll try again with more thorough tests and come back if I
find anything even more weird stuff. So well, thanks all. Seems like
this is nothing to worry about, however, I thought (means: I haven't
checked the docs:) that after my node got deleted from the
directory-servers no inbound requests should happen anymore.

However, thanks :)
