No, these config options won't help you in finding out what usage _your_

So, these options won't help you. You shouldn't enable them, or your Tor

from your webserver (or whatever kind of server that is)? Your local Tor
opens a new connection for every incoming request to your hidden
service. Maybe you can count those connections?
