I'm looking for options for
torrc or another ways to force my tor daemon to fetch full network status.
E.g. today, my
/var/lib/tor/cached-descriptors.new contain only records about 1032 relays, however http://torstatus.blutmagie.de show me more than 5000 relays.
I'm already enable in the
DownloadExtraInfo 1 FetchUselessDescriptors 1
Am I must increase
ulimit for Tor from 4096 to 10000 file descriptors:
$ ulimit -H -n 4096
And this option of torrc:
PathsNeededToBuildCircuits option in https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
Tor clients don’t build circuits for user traffic until they know about enough of the network so that they could potentially construct enough of the possible paths through the network. If this option is set to a fraction between 0.25 and 0.95, Tor won’t build circuits until it has enough descriptors or microdescriptors to construct that fraction of possible paths. Note that setting this option too low can make your Tor client less anonymous, and setting it too high can prevent your Tor client from bootstrapping. If this option is negative, Tor will use a default value chosen by the directory authorities. (Default: -1.)
I'm trying to add to my
