your problem is a corrupted node file.
remove the file named "node" in the freenet install directory, and freenet 
creates a new one on restart. sadly your old established connections 
break and your node has to re-integrate. but, it will work again.
and the experience of your node is not at zero, because your node has 
still the old routing information.

Re: [freenet-support] Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low

2005-03-10 Thread Martin Scheffler
  Unfortunately, because of the absurd way in which the Windows VMM
  allocates memory, the more physical RAM you have, the more swap you
  must add. (About 1.5x physical RAM is a typical value for the minimum
  pagefile size.) Having less swap than physical memory is very bad
  because Windows wants to allocate a page of swap for every page of
  physical memory which gets allocated. If you've got 2048MB RAM and
  128MB swap, it'll start complaining bitterly as soon as your memory
  usage exceeds 128MB.

 Actually Linux does this too. IIRC the recommended setting is 2x RAM
 for swap on linux. :)

no, this is not true! your linux will behave a lot more consistent 
(compared to windows) when you only supply 2MB of swap - or even no swap.
the recommendation is just a rule of thumb, supplying more does not make 
much sense, because your machine will swap for ages if you really use the 
space. supplying less than 2xRAM is not as painful as with windows.

ok, even linux swaps out unuses memory pages occasionally, but they are 
still mapped, until it is really needed to remap the pages.

pro:
- preemptive swapout is done in idle condition
- when RAM gets tight, some of the swapping is already done

con:
- memory+swap may show more than 100% of allocated memory

Re: [freenet-support] How does the noderef work?

2004-08-14 Thread Martin Scheffler
Am Saturday, 14. August 2004 12:42 schrieb Garb:
 ...
 I am running Freenet with do announce, which I figure has the purpose
 of telling the world that I exist and would like to be added to other
 peoples list of nodes. At the same time I assume that I am building up
 my own internal list of good contact nodes by simply surfing Freenet
 and thus interacting with the network.
That is correct.

 But whenever I update, I get two files - the jar and a much lager
 noderef. Assuming that the latter contains a list of known good
 contact nodes, will this file then overwrite the one I have in my
 system already? Or maybe append itself to it? Or is it simply discarded
 by my node because it already has one?
The seednodes.ref file is overwritten on update, this is ok because 
nodes come and go. On startup, the node decides if it knows about enough 
neighbours, otherwise some noderefs from the seednodes file are added to 
the routing table (you can see that at the first lines in the log (not) 
seeding routing table).
If you want to force a reseed, you just have to give the seednodes.ref a 
later modification date than the routing table files (load and save the 
file without modification).


 If the one I've built by running and using Freenet simply gets
 overwritten by the noderef, wouldt that mean that my node have to
 integrate itself into the network from scratch everytime I update?
No. The routing table is saved in different files (the ones named *_a and 
*_b). The seednodes.ref is only used as primer.

 To add to my confusion, I've noticed that people often get the advice
 to re-seed when complaining about too many RNF's, and they are even
 provided with a special link for that. Isnt re-seed what we all do
 automatically everytime we update? Is the noderef from that special
 link better than the one I get every time I upgrade?
This link points to the very same file, which is loaded by the automatic 
updater. After the download, the automatic updater changes the 
modification time into the past, to avoid reseeding on every startup. As 
long as the existing routing table is healthy, reseeding may degrade the 
routing quality.

It's not really the speed, the RAM matters.

 Can it hurt the network if I make my datastore too big?

short answer: No!

long answer: The store fills up when your node serves requests from others 
and you (the user). If a requested key is already in the store, your node 
just sends this and makes no request on his own for that. When the store 
is full, the least recently used key(s) is/are purged to make room. A 
bigger store means more keys are available, so chances to find requested 
keys in the store increase, this is _GOOD_ for the network.

( might only overflow your own hard disk if configured insane :-) )

The seednodes.ref file is quite big nowadays. that is the reason for the 
OutOfMemory messages which do lobotomize your node before starting up.

Please use an editor of your choice and cut the file down to only some few 
megabytes; then restart.

this shall be fixed with stable version 5091, until then, use this method.

 Not really, but enlarging your datastore all the time will prevent
 specialisation. This isn't real bad, but specialisation improves
 routing. If I were you I would let it specialise at one point.

Sorry, but forget that. In Freenet there is no thing like a one peak 
specialisation for more than one minute.
And when the network can hold more data, it increases the lifetime of 
seldom requested keys.
Specialization changes over time, anyway.

The only drawback may be that your ubernode becomes popular over time 
because of more successful replies :-) (much connections increase request 
ability aswell)

Routing does not get better when your node has to purge old keys on new 
requests - maybe they are requested just one minute later - more net 
load :-(

Am Mittwoch, 11. August 2004 01:06 schrieb Derek Ferguson:
 Hmmm. Am I wrong to think there probably is an optimal store size for
 each node?
Sorry, yes.

 My thinking is that as the store grows, the node draws more requests,
 which at some point will exceed the node's ability to service them all
 in a timely manner due to resource limits (probably bandwidth).

 As the store grows larger, even more requests come in, causing the node
 to service a shrinking proportion of the total number of requests
 directed towards it, which has a negative impact on the network.

The first is the request success rate (which makes your node attractive), 
another measure (request rate limiting) tells the other nodes to reduce 
the requests/time, to balance out all the peers with your avaiable 
bandwidth.

A big store is good (even for yourself).

Well, this does not change the message from above, but you should really

 That is not entirely true. The files are encrypted with keys
 based on the file's content. When the file content is known, then
 routing keys can be computed.

No, this description is inaccurate!
When you know the _exact_ file contents, you don't need freenet. And 
besides, the very same text or data with just one bit changed is a new 
key, this means you are only able to scan for well-known data.

The SHA1 hash from the original and unencrypted data is used as encryption 
key. The data is encrypted with that (You can not get back the encryption 
key without decrypting first).

Then, some other data is added for routing and checking, and the SHA1 hash 
of the whole piece makes up the routing key, this is what you see while 
proxying and caching the key data.

This is not really a bug, it's just not implemented to change the store

Look into your start-menu, under all programs. There, you should find a

 The connection was refused when attempting to contact  127.0.0.1:

This happens, when you start too many connections to FProxy/FCP at once.
Then, the node closes the port until the load dropped a bit.
You should make less requests at once.

Re: [freenet-support] Re: Limiting outgoing connections to a certain port range...

2004-05-04 Thread Martin Scheffler
 I checked on that before posting to the list, and the module is only
 valid in the OUTPUT chain. Since Freenet sends data both ways it's not
 much use for this.

I use this -m owner match, it works well and is sufficient. There is no 
point in limiting the input rate (well, at least in most setups), because the 
packets already arrived at your box, when you limit them.
The peers slow down after some time, but when your box starts to drop packets 
you even lose more bandwith for retransmission.

When you have asymmetric connection, the uplink will be the harder problem.
