Optimizing your network settings
If you do not read I2P source, you need to know that there important
thresholds for faster router operation. Inactive peers are expired
faster, when using more than 33% of max. connections. Some features
are shut off when using more than 75% of max. connections. So we
recommend to watch where connection numbers after 24h uptime settle
on the /peers page and tune the following avanced config settings to
twice that values.
There also is a hidden setting
Set this from false to true for max. performance before adjusting
the above. You need to run I2Speed of course.
This removes random extra bytes from SSU packets that eat CPU and
bandwidth. Also helps a bit with the MTU bug we fixed in 201002, if
you do not run I2Speed. Attackers would have read the source and
discard padding anyway.
All tweaks do not need a restart, if advanced config is enabled.
