Re: Hibernation and client use
I don't think the TOR server with parameters you specified can determine
whether your traffic should be allowed over other client connections.
The server was given a max option and stopped processing once it reached
the limit. Why don't you just set up a client only TOR server for your
own personal use on your desktop/laptop?

I've got a new node ("jpicktor"). I just installed it a few days ago
and I went to the BayFF talk last night. Quite fun.
Anyways, I'm playing around with the bandwidth limiting features. My
server runs Xen and Linux, and is in a colo (simpli.biz, which is at
above.net in San Jose, CA).
I'm using tor 0.0.9.9-1 from Debian unstable.
The man page says this about the AccountingMax option:
If you have bandwidth cost issues, using this option is preferable
to setting a low bandwidth, since it provides users with a collection
of fast servers that are up some of the time, which is more useful
than a set of slow servers that are always "available".
So I tried this:
AccountingMax 2 GB
AccountingStart day 0:00
The hibernation did appear to work, as traffic dried up. However, it
seems that I was also unable to use the node as a client via privoxy
and the socks interface.
Losing client access wasn't exactly the behaviour I was expecting or
hoping for during hibernation. I couldn't find any documentation
anywhere saying that hibernation would shut down client access.
I'm wondering if it would be possible to allow client access while
hibernating? Or is there some technical reason that client access
must be shut down?
I'm going to try limiting the bandwidth next, at least I should be
able to preserve client access that way...
