Judging from the Rendezvous spec [1, ÂÂ1.3, 1.4, 1.6], a relay with an
HSDir flag (â40% relays at the moment) will eventually see all online
.onion descriptors (placed in âcached-descriptorsâ file?). If I read
the spec correctly, the mean time for a single HSDir relay to see a
given .onion descriptor is ((# of HSDir relays) / 6) hours, which is 8
days at present. So running a relay for a couple of months should
produce a nearly complete list of hidden service addresses, optionally
with some indicative access statistics [1, Â1.6].
