#1587 closed defect (fixed)

Setting +/- option in variance at I2P Hidden Service settings has no effect

Reported by: DjJeshk Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.20
Component: apps/i2ptunnel Version: 0.9.19
Keywords: Cc:
Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no


I2P version: 0.9.19-30-rc
Java version: Oracle Corporation 1.8.0_45 (Java™ SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_45-b15)
Wrapper version: 3.5.25
Server version: 8.1.17.v20150415
Servlet version: Jasper JSP 2.1 Engine
Platform: Windows 7 x86 6.1
Processor: Core 2 (45nm) (core2)
Jbigi: Locally optimized library jbigi-windows-core2.dll loaded from file
Encoding: Cp1257
Charset: windows-1257

± option in variance looks disabled.

How to reproduce:
Open /i2ptunnel/edit?tunnel=0 (or other number than zero)
Set ± setting in variance and save
Look again at /i2ptunnel/edit?tunnel=0

PS. Do we need such unstable setting that generates tunnels with length 2, 3 and 4 at same time?

I was testing +0-1 hop variance setting and it generates approx 25% tunnels with length 3 and 75% tunnels with length 2 if you have set 2 at tunnel length.
It would be great to enable setting average tunnel length to not integer value like 2.6 . It would be interpreted as 60% tunnels with length 3 and 40% tunnels with length 2. Setting 2 is less anonymous but about two-three times faster than option 3, but setting tunnel length larger than 3 has negative benefit in anonymity and speed, so it should be implemented for testing purposes.

Could you clarify if, when testing, you were using 0.9.19?
Did you observe the issue happening in 0.9.19 or just -30?

Using Linux with -31-rc, I can't reproduce this issue. The setting persists and the tunnels built are also displaying variance.

I'll defer comment for now on the usefulness of the field to zzz.

Could not give more clarification, because I do not guarantee a truth of memories that were too long ago. I will try with -31, but http://killyourtv.i2p/viewmtn/branch/changes/i2p.i2p does not mention anything about it, so issue should not disappear for me.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Fixed in 53e2836926eaf521549334439ca416a7e115f447 0.9.19-33-rc.
Only ± variance was broken, the + variance was fine.
Broken in mid-March by str4d's config refactoring.

re: PS, not a widely used option, use it or don't, it's not hurting anything.

re: PPS, we're unlikely to ever do that, but if you really want it, put it in a separate ticket and state your case.
