After reading this post
started looking into what is happening on the dir port on my relay
The bandwidth ratio of dir/or traffic is around 3% to 4%. Not excessive
according to the linked post.
Looking at the conntrack table I see many IP addresses (usually from
Ukraine or Russia) with 100+ connections. Atm there are around 10 IP
addresses with 100+ connections and around 30 with 10+ connections. None
of the IP addresses I've looked at are Tor relays.
Is this expected behaviour against on a fallbackdir flagged relay?
Does the DoS prevention implemented recently address abuse against the
I read that newer Tor clients don't use the dir port. Correct?
Do Tor relays use the dir port?
Can I remove the dir port from my relay without reducing my relays
usability to the network?
Thank you for any answers.
