This is my monthly status report for February 2022.
Main activities during the period:
0. Created the Onionprobe tool for testing and monitoring Onion
Services: The Tor Project / Onion Services / Onionprobe · GitLab
It has basic functionality, including metrics exporting to Prometheus, but still
needs work to address more general use cases:
TODO.md · main · The Tor Project / Onion Services / Onionprobe · GitLab
A summary about what it currently does was made during the last Demo Day:
docs/demoday.md · main · Silvio Rhatto / Onionprobe · GitLab
Since that, Onionprobe got additional metrics and it's first refactor
Now I'm interested to know what the community would like to have in such a tool!
Some special reporting output? Some auditing like Onionscan does?
Please let me know
1. Completed the initial version of Oniongroove specs for deployment and monitoring
of Onion Service sites.
Current specification is available at
docs/specs.md · feature/specs · The Tor Project / Onion Services / Oniongroove · GitLab
It's is about to be reviewed and merged in the main branch:
Initial specs (!1) · Merge requests · The Tor Project / Onion Services / Oniongroove · GitLab
Right now the main intention with this document is to make sure we're in the right path
towards an automated high availability deployment/monitoring suite, making acceptable
choices to ease the handling of all complexities involved in hosting Onion Services.
So comments and suggestions would be gladly welcomed
2. Started research/summarization for existing proposals on Onion Service
usability improvements, to be published soon. Related ticket:
