Freenet 0.5 quesiton revisited

November 12th, 2007 14:47 pm | by Ed |

Referring to my earlier entry about freenet 0.5 and a question I had. I've decided to try an experiment.

I stopped the node and deleted the routing table files and edited the seednodes.ref to only include one reference from a node that mine was connected to a few minutes earlier.

Here's a snapshot of the nodes that were in my routing table before I deleted it:

# Histogram of node versions in fred's Routing table
# Nov 12, 2007 11:53:35 AM
# nodes: 1645
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5099 3
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5100 12
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5101 4
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5102 16
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5103 3
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5104 3
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5105 38
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5106 229
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5107 1323
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5108 1
Fred,0.6,1.51,60275 3
Fred,0.6,1.51,60276 7
Fred,0.6,1.51,60277 3

and here's a shot of just after re-starting:

# Histogram of node versions in fred's Routing table
# Nov 12, 2007 11:55:00 AM
# nodes: 1
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5107 1

Finally, here's a shot of what it looks like now:

# Histogram of node versions in fred's Routing table
# Nov 12, 2007 2:30:34 PM
# nodes: 50
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5099 1
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5100 1
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5103 1
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5106 3
Fred,0.5,STABLE-1.51,5107 42
Fred,0.6,1.51,60275 1
Fred,0.6,1.51,60277 1

I'm interested to see how long it takes to get the number of known nodes back up over 1000. This should serve as something of an indicator of the health of the network.
