This is chutney. It doesn't do much so far. It isn't ready for prime-time.
If it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.
It is supposed to be a good tool for:
- Configuring a testing tor network
- Launching and monitoring a testing tor network
- Running tests on a testing tor network
Right now it only sorta does these things.
You will need, at the moment:
- Tor installed somewhere in your path or the location of the 'tor' and
'tor-gencert' binaries specified through the environment variables
CHUTNEY_TOR and CHUTNEY_TOR_GENCERT, respectively.
- Python 2.7 or later
Stuff to try:
./chutney configure networks/basic
./chutney start networks/basic
./chutney status networks/basic
./chutney verify networks/basic
./chutney hup networks/basic
./chutney stop networks/basic
./chutney configure networks/basic-min
./chutney start networks/basic-min
./chutney status networks/basic-min
CHUTNEY_DATA_BYTES=104857600 ./chutney verify networks/basic-min
# Send 100MB of data per client connection
# verify produces performance figures for:
# Single Stream Bandwidth: the speed of the slowest stream, end-to-end
# Overall tor Bandwidth: the sum of the bandwidth across each tor instance
# This approximates the CPU-bound tor performance on the current machine,
# assuming everything is multithreaded and network performance is infinite.
./chutney stop networks/basic-min
./chutney configure networks/basic-025
./chutney start networks/basic-025
./chutney status networks/basic-025
CHUTNEY_CONNECTIONS=5 ./chutney verify networks/basic-025
# Make 5 connections from each client through a random exit
./chutney stop networks/basic-025
Note: If you create 7 or more connections to a hidden service from a single
client, you'll likely get a verification failure due to
HS Connection Tests:
./chutney configure networks/hs-025
./chutney start networks/hs-025
./chutney status networks/hs-025
CHUTNEY_HS_MULTI_CLIENT=1 ./chutney verify networks/hs-025
# Make a connection from each client to each hs
# Default behavior is one client connects to each HS
./chutney stop networks/hs-025
The configuration files:
networks/basic holds the configuration for the network you're configuring
above. It refers to some torrc template files in torrc_templates/.
The working files:
chutney sticks its working files, including all data directories, log
files, etc, in ./net/. Each tor instance gets a subdirectory of net/nodes.
You can override the directory "./net" with the CHUTNEY_DATA_DIR
The test scripts are stored in the "scripts/chutney_tests" directory. These
Python files must define a "run_test(network)" function. Files starting with
an underscore ("_") are ignored.
Test scripts can be run using the following syntax:
The chutney verify command is implemented using a test script.
Test scripts in the test directory with the same name as standard commands
are run instead of that standard command. This allows expert users to replace
the standard chutney commands with modified versions.
