[Author Prev][Author Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Author Index][Thread Index] failing to upload descriptor updates automatically

     I'm running and have noticed a recurring problem.  It
appears that tor is sometimes not uploading a new descriptor on schedule.
Once this happens, it appears that it will *never* upload a descriptor
update on its own, though it can be tricked into doing so by making some
significant change in torrc, then giving it a SIGHUP.  I've been trying
to keep an eye on it and forcing it to update when the authorities stop
listing it in the consensus documents by commenting/uncommenting an
ExitPolicy line and giving it SIGHUP.
     Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
