relevance 4../test/test_dht.cpp:1286pass in the actual salt as a parameter
relevance 4../test/test_dht.cpp:2174pass in th actual salt as the argument
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:116make the mock_socket hold a reference to the list of where to record packets instead of having a global variable
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:125ideally the mock_socket would contain this queue of packets, to make tests independent
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:1243split this up into smaller tests
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:2643use dht_test_setup class to simplify the node setup
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:3188use dht_test_setup class to simplify the node setup
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:3287use dht_test_setup class to simplify the node setup
relevance 3../test/test_dht.cpp:3380use dht_test_setup class to simplify the node setup
relevance 3../src/ut_metadata.cpp:267use the aux::write_* functions and the span here instead, it will fit better with send_buffer()
relevance 3../src/session_handle.cpp:660expose the sequence_number, public_key, secret_key and signature types to the client
relevance 3../src/peer_connection.cpp:3099instead of having to ask the torrent whether it's in graceful pause mode or not, the peers should keep that state (and the torrent should update them when it enters graceful pause). When a peer enters graceful pause mode, it should cancel all outstanding requests and clear its request queue.
relevance 3../src/peer_connection.cpp:3989once peers are properly put in graceful pause mode, they can cancel all outstanding requests and this test can be removed.
relevance 3../src/peer_connection.cpp:4668new_piece should be an optional. piece index -1 should not be allowed
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:1111closing the udp sockets here means that the uTP connections cannot be closed gracefully
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:1571the logic in this if-block should be factored out into a separate function. At least most of it
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:2527it would be neat if the utp socket manager would handle ICMP errors too
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:4066it would probably make sense to have a separate list of peers that are eligible for optimistic unchoke, similar to the torrents perhaps this could even iterate over the pool allocators of torrent_peer objects. It could probably be done in a single pass and collect the n best candidates. maybe just a queue of peers would make even more sense, just pick the next peer in the queue for unchoking. It would be O(1).
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:4089peers should know whether their torrent is paused or not, instead of having to ask it over and over again
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:4335there should be a pre-calculated list of all peers eligible for unchoking
relevance 3../src/session_impl.cpp:6032use public_key here instead of std::array
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:400we could probably get away with just saving a few fields here
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:677assert there are no outstanding async operations on this torrent
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:1240there's some duplication between this function and peer_connection::incoming_piece(). is there a way to merge something?
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:3750this could probably be pulled out into a free function
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:4679should this alert have an error code in it?
relevance 3../src/torrent.cpp:4747this should return optional<>. piece index -1 should not be allowed
relevance 3../src/web_peer_connection.cpp:196this should be an optional, piece index -1 should not be allowed
relevance 3../src/web_peer_connection.cpp:410do we really need a special case here? wouldn't the multi-file case handle single file torrents correctly too?
relevance 3../src/web_peer_connection.cpp:495file_index_t should not allow negative values
relevance 3../src/web_peer_connection.cpp:667this could be made more efficient for the case when we use an HTTP proxy. Then we wouldn't need to add new web seeds to the torrent, we could just make the redirect table contain full URLs.
relevance 3../src/posix_disk_io.cpp:150this const_cast can be removed once iovec_t is no longer a thing, but we just use plain spans
relevance 3../src/kademlia/rpc_manager.cpp:70move this into it's own .cpp file
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/enum_net.hpp:159use string_view for device_name
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/stat.hpp:257everything but payload counters and rates could probably be removed from here
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/torrent_handle.hpp:497unify url_seed and http_seed with just web_seed, using the web_seed_entry.
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/tracker_manager.hpp:370make sure the udp_socket supports passing on string-hostnames too, and that this function is used
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/pe_crypto.hpp:72dh_key_exchange should probably move into its own file
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/torrent.hpp:1380factor out predictive pieces and all operations on it into a separate class (to use as memeber here instead)
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/torrent.hpp:1440factor out the links (as well as update_list() to a separate class that torrent can inherit)
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/web_peer_connection.hpp:118if we make this be a disk_buffer_holder instead we would save a copy use allocate_disk_receive_buffer and release_disk_receive_buffer
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/kademlia/routing_table.hpp:153to improve memory locality and scanning performance, turn the routing table into a single vector with boundaries for the nodes instead. Perhaps replacement nodes should be in a separate vector.
relevance 3../include/libtorrent/aux_/storage_utils.hpp:54remove this typedef, and use span for disk write operations
relevance 2../test/test_piece_picker.cpp:2498test picking with partial pieces and other peers present so that both backup_pieces and backup_pieces2 are used
relevance 2../test/test_storage.cpp:590split this test up into smaller parts
relevance 2../test/test_dht.cpp:1678test num_global_nodes
relevance 2../test/test_dht.cpp:1679test need_refresh
relevance 2../test/test_dht.cpp:2864split this up into smaller test cases
relevance 2../src/instantiate_connection.cpp:44peer_connection and tracker_connection should probably be flags
relevance 2../src/bdecode.cpp:818attempt to simplify this implementation by embracing the span
relevance 2../src/peer_connection.cpp:2526this should probably be based on time instead of number of request messages. For a very high throughput connection, 300 may be a legitimate number of requests to have in flight when getting choked
relevance 2../src/peer_connection.cpp:3277since we throw away the queue entry once we issue the disk job, this may happen. Instead, we should keep the queue entry around, mark it as having been requested from disk and once the disk job comes back, discard it if it has been cancelled. Maybe even be able to cancel disk jobs?
relevance 2../src/peer_connection.cpp:4910use a deadline_timer for timeouts. Don't rely on second_tick()! Hook this up to connect timeout as well. This would improve performance because of less work in second_tick(), and might let use remove ticking entirely eventually
relevance 2../src/upnp.cpp:106use boost::asio::ip::network instead of netmask
relevance 2../src/http_tracker_connection.cpp:464returning a bool here is redundant. Instead this function should return the peer_entry
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:587is there a reason not to move all of this into init()? and just post it to the io_context?
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:733the ip filter should probably be saved here too
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:3793make a list for torrents that want to be announced on the DHT so we don't have to loop over all torrents, just to find the ones that want to announce
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:5415this function should be removed and users need to deal with the more generic case of having multiple listen ports
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:5455this function should be removed and users need to deal with the more generic case of having multiple ssl ports
relevance 2../src/session_impl.cpp:6294this should be factored into the udp socket, so we only have the code once
relevance 2../src/torrent.cpp:482post alert
relevance 2../src/torrent.cpp:1741add a unit test where we don't have metadata, connect to a peer that sends a bitfield that's too large, then we get the metadata
relevance 2../src/torrent.cpp:4252use chrono type for time duration
relevance 2../src/torrent.cpp:4691abort lookups this torrent has made via the session host resolver interface
relevance 2../src/torrent.cpp:7659if peer is a really good peer, maybe we shouldn't disconnect it perhaps this logic should be disabled if we have too many idle peers (with some definition of idle)
relevance 2../src/udp_tracker_connection.cpp:81support authentication here. tracker_req().auth
relevance 2../src/alert_manager.cpp:80keep a count of the number of threads waiting. Only if it's > 0 notify them
relevance 2../src/path.cpp:446test this on a FAT volume to see what error we get!
relevance 2../src/peer_list.cpp:475it would be nice if there was a way to iterate over these torrent_peer objects in the order they are allocated in the pool instead. It would probably be more efficient
relevance 2../src/piece_picker.cpp:1985make the 2048 limit configurable
relevance 2../src/piece_picker.cpp:2626the first_block returned here is the largest free range, not the first-fit range, which would be better
relevance 2../src/piece_picker.cpp:3500it would be nice if this could be folded into lock_piece() the main distinction is that this also maintains the m_num_passed counter and the passed_hash_check member Is there ever a case where we call write filed without also locking the piece? Perhaps write_failed() should imply locking it.
relevance 2../src/storage_utils.cpp:357technically, this is where the transaction of moving the files is completed. This is where the new save_path should be committed. If there is an error in the code below, that should not prevent the new save path to be set. Maybe it would make sense to make the save_path an in-out parameter
relevance 2../src/storage_utils.cpp:548is this risky? The upper layer will assume we have the whole file. Perhaps we should verify that at least the size of the file is correct
relevance 2../src/web_peer_connection.cpp:617just make this peer not have the pieces associated with the file we just requested. Only when it doesn't have any of the file do the following pad files will make it complicated
relevance 2../src/escape_string.cpp:192this should probably be moved into string_util.cpp
relevance 2../src/tracker_manager.cpp:374implement
relevance 2../src/alert.cpp:1995the salt here is allocated on the heap. It would be nice to allocate in the stack_allocator
relevance 2../src/kademlia/node.cpp:681it would be nice to have a bias towards node-id prefixes that are missing in the bucket
relevance 2../src/kademlia/node.cpp:753use the non deprecated function instead of this one
relevance 2../src/kademlia/routing_table.cpp:305use the non deprecated function instead of this one
relevance 2../src/kademlia/routing_table.cpp:940move the lowest priority nodes to the replacement bucket
relevance 2../src/kademlia/dht_storage.cpp:87make this configurable in dht_settings
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/peer_connection.hpp:994this should really be a circular buffer
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/peer_connection.hpp:1084rename this target queue size
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/piece_picker.hpp:635having 8 priority levels is probably excessive. It should probably be changed to 3 levels + dont-download
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/enum_net.hpp:191this could be done more efficiently by just looking up the interface with the given name, maybe even with if_nametoindex()
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/proxy_base.hpp:298use the resolver interface that has a built-in cache
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/socks5_stream.hpp:153add async_connect() that takes a hostname and port as well
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/aux_/chained_buffer.hpp:60this type should probably be renamed to send_buffer
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/aux_/session_interface.hpp:127make this interface a lot smaller. It could be split up into several smaller interfaces. Each subsystem could then limit the size of the mock object to test it.
relevance 2../include/libtorrent/aux_/session_interface.hpp:136the IP voting mechanism should be factored out to its own class, not part of the session and these constants should move too
relevance 1../src/session_impl.cpp:5606report the proper address of the router as the source IP of this vote of our external address, instead of the empty address
relevance 1../src/torrent.cpp:1062make this depend on the error and on the filesystem the files are being downloaded to. If the error is no_space_left_on_device and the filesystem doesn't support sparse files, only zero the priorities of the pieces that are at the tails of all files, leaving everything up to the highest written piece in each file
relevance 1../src/torrent.cpp:8022should disconnect all peers that have the pieces we have not just seeds. It would be pretty expensive to check all pieces for all peers though
relevance 1../include/libtorrent/ip_voter.hpp:130have one instance per possible subnet, 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, etc.
relevance 0../test/test_resume.cpp:560test what happens when loading a resume file with both piece priorities and file priorities (file prio should take precedence)
relevance 0../test/test_resume.cpp:563make sure a resume file only ever contain file priorities OR piece priorities. Never both.
relevance 0../test/test_resume.cpp:566generally save
relevance 0../test/test_resume.cpp:881test all other resume flags here too. This would require returning more than just the torrent_status from test_resume_flags. Also http seeds and trackers for instance
relevance 0../test/test_resume.cpp:1646test all other resume flags here too. This would require returning more than just the torrent_status from test_resume_flags. Also http seeds and trackers for instance
relevance 0../test/test_ssl.cpp:399test using a signed certificate with the wrong info-hash in DN

relevance 0../test/test_timestamp_history.cpp:54test the case where we have > 120 samples (and have the base delay actually be updated)
relevance 0../test/test_timestamp_history.cpp:55test the case where a sample is lower than the history entry but not lower than the base
relevance 0../test/test_flags.cpp:163change to a different test setup. currently always paused. test_set_after_add(torrent_flags::paused); test_unset_after_add(torrent_flags::paused);
relevance 0../test/test_flags.cpp:205this test is flaky, since the torrent will become ready before asking for the flags, and by then stop_when_ready will have been cleared test_add_and_get_flags(torrent_flags::stop_when_ready); setting stop-when-ready when already stopped has no effect.
relevance 0../test/test_flags.cpp:209change to a different test setup. currently always paused. test_set_after_add(torrent_flags::stop_when_ready);
relevance 0../test/test_upnp.cpp:156store the log and verify that some key messages are there

relevance 0../test/test_torrent_info.cpp:391torrent with multiple trackers in multiple tiers, making sure we shuffle them (how do you test shuffling?, load it multiple times and make sure it's in different order at least once)
relevance 0../test/test_torrent_info.cpp:394torrents with a zero-length name

relevance 0../test/test_dht.cpp:470check to make sure the "best" items are stored
relevance 0../test/test_dht.cpp:3259this won't work because the second node isn't pinged so it wont be added to the routing table
relevance 0../test/test_dht.cpp:4054test obfuscated_get_peers
relevance 0../test/test_merkle_tree.cpp:173use structured bindings in C++17
relevance 0../test/test_merkle_tree.cpp:491add test for load_piece_layer()
relevance 0../test/test_merkle_tree.cpp:492add test for get_piece_layer() when tree is in piece-layer mode
relevance 0../test/test_resolve_links.cpp:93test files with different piece size (negative test)
relevance 0../test/test_resolve_links.cpp:96it would be nice to test resolving of more than just 2 files as well. like 3 single file torrents merged into one, resolving all 3 files.
relevance 0../test/test_transfer.cpp:166these settings_pack tests belong in their own test
relevance 0../src/performance_counters.cpp:40move stats_counter_t out of counters
relevance 0../src/performance_counters.cpp:41should bittorrent keep-alive messages have a counter too?
relevance 0../src/performance_counters.cpp:42It would be nice if this could be an internal type. default_disk_constructor depends on it now
relevance 0../src/ut_metadata.cpp:280we really need to increment the refcounter on the torrent while this buffer is still in the peer's send buffer
relevance 0../src/session_handle.cpp:473in C++14, use unique_ptr and move it into the lambda
relevance 0../src/peer_connection.cpp:1094this should be the global download rate
relevance 0../src/peer_connection.cpp:3502sort the allowed fast set in priority order
relevance 0../src/torrent_info.cpp:865this should be considered a failure, and the .torrent file rejected
relevance 0../src/magnet_uri.cpp:318what's the right number here?
relevance 0../src/part_file.cpp:294what do we do if someone is currently reading from the disk from this piece? does it matter? Since we won't actively erase the data from disk, but it may be overwritten soon, it's probably not that big of a deal
relevance 0../src/part_file.cpp:404instead of rebuilding the whole file header and flushing it, update the slot entries as we go
relevance 0../src/utp_socket_manager.cpp:212this should not be heap allocated, sockets should be movable
relevance 0../src/packet_buffer.cpp:157use compare_less_wrap for this comparison as well
relevance 0../src/session.cpp:538In C++17. use if constexpr instead
relevance 0../src/posix_part_file.cpp:339what do we do if someone is currently reading from the disk from this piece? does it matter? Since we won't actively erase the data from disk, but it may be overwritten soon, it's probably not that big of a deal
relevance 0../src/posix_part_file.cpp:425instead of rebuilding the whole file header and flushing it, update the slot entries as we go
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:599come up with some abstraction to do this for gnutls as well load certificates from the windows system certificate store
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:1450it would be nice to reserve() these vectors up front
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:1930could this function be merged with expand_unspecified_addresses? right now both listen_endpoint_t and listen_interface_t are almost identical, maybe the latter could be removed too
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:2226it would probably be better to do this by having a listen-socket "version" number that gets bumped. And instead of setting a bool to disable a tracker, we set the version number that it was disabled at. This change would affect the ABI in 1.2, so should be done in 2.0 or later
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:2774this size need to be capped
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:2799this size need to be capped
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:3490have a separate list for these connections, instead of having to loop through all of them
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:3523this should apply to all bandwidth channels
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:4225use a lower limit than m_settings.connections_limit to allocate the to 10% or so of connection slots for incoming connections cap this at max - 1, since we may add one below
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:4370post a message to have this happen immediately instead of waiting for the next tick
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:4697it might be a nice feature here to limit the number of torrents to send in a single update. By just posting the first n torrents, they would nicely be round-robined because the torrent lists are always pushed back. Perhaps the status_update_alert could even have a fixed array of n entries rather than a vector, to further improve memory locality.
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:5058factor out this logic into a separate function for unit testing
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:5776refactor, move the storage to dht_tracker
relevance 0../src/session_impl.cpp:6162asserts that no outstanding async operations are still in flight
relevance 0../src/ip_notifier.cpp:41simulator support
relevance 0../src/disabled_disk_io.cpp:106it would be nice to return a valid hash of zeroes here
relevance 0../src/cpuid.cpp:131enable when aarch64 is really tested
relevance 0../src/add_torrent_params.cpp:78pre C++17, GCC and msvc does not make std::string nothrow move assignable, which means no type containing a string will be nothrow move assignable by default either static_assert(std::is_nothrow_move_assignable::value , "should be nothrow move assignable");
relevance 0../src/add_torrent_params.cpp:84it would be nice if this was nothrow default constructible static_assert(std::is_nothrow_default_constructible::value , "should be nothrow default constructible");
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:1864this could be optimized by looking up which files are complete and just look at those
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:1877this could be optimized by looking up which files are complete and just look at those
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:2590this pattern is repeated in a few places. Factor this into a function and generalize the concept of a torrent having a dedicated listen port
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:3668add one peer per IP the hostname resolves to
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:7192come up with a better way of doing this, instead of an immediately invoked lambda expression.
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:7425if the existing torrent doesn't have metadata, insert the metadata we just downloaded into it.
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:8733perhaps 0 should actially mean 0
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:8749perhaps 0 should actially mean 0
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:9042add a flag to ignore stats, and only care about resume data for content. For unchanged files, don't trigger a load of the metadata just to save an empty resume data file
relevance 0../src/torrent.cpp:10610instead of resorting the whole list, insert the peers directly into the right place
relevance 0../src/mmap_disk_io.cpp:559in the future, propagate exceptions back to the handlers
relevance 0../src/mmap_disk_io.cpp:1030this is potentially very expensive. One way to solve it would be to have a fence for just this one piece. but it hardly seems worth the complexity and cost just for the edge case of receiving a corrupt piece
relevance 0../src/choker.cpp:255make configurable
relevance 0../src/web_connection_base.cpp:72introduce a web-seed default class which has a low download priority
relevance 0../src/utp_stream.cpp:1306this loop is not very efficient. It could be fixed by having a separate list of sequence numbers that need resending
relevance 0../src/udp_tracker_connection.cpp:633why is this a linked list?
relevance 0../src/torrent_peer.cpp:178how do we deal with our external address changing?
relevance 0../src/piece_picker.cpp:112find a better place for this
relevance 0../src/piece_picker.cpp:2061this could probably be optimized by incrementally calling partial_sort to sort one more element in the list. Because chances are that we'll just need a single piece, and once we've picked from it we're done. Sorting the rest of the list in that case is a waste of time.
relevance 0../src/piece_picker.cpp:2211Is it a good idea that this affinity takes precedence over piece priority?
relevance 0../src/piece_picker.cpp:2598when expanding pieces for cache stripe reasons, the !downloading condition doesn't make much sense
relevance 0../src/piece_picker.cpp:3164should 5 be configurable?
relevance 0../src/torrent_handle.cpp:556support moving files into this call
relevance 0../src/storage_utils.cpp:292ideally, if we end up copying files because of a move across volumes, the source should not be deleted until they've all been copied. That would let us rollback with higher confidence.
relevance 0../src/random.cpp:141improve calling RAND_bytes multiple times, using fallback for now
relevance 0../src/hash_picker.cpp:112allocate m_hash_verified lazily when a hash conflist occurs? would save memory in the common case of no hash failures
relevance 0../src/hash_picker.cpp:298use strucutured bindings here in C++17

relevance 0../src/settings_pack.cpp:558it would be nice to reserve() these vectors up front
relevance 0../src/enum_net.cpp:144in C++17, use __has_include for this. Other operating systems are likely to require this as well

relevance 0../src/pe_crypto.cpp:71it would be nice to be able to export to a fixed width field, so we wouldn't have to shift it later
relevance 0../src/udp_socket.cpp:534use the system resolver_interface here
relevance 0../src/udp_socket.cpp:650perhaps an attempt should be made to bind m_socks5_sock to the device of m_listen_socket
relevance 0../src/file_storage.cpp:448maybe it would be nice to have a better index here
relevance 0../src/file_storage.cpp:1194this would be more efficient if m_paths was sorted first, such that a lower path index always meant sorted-before
relevance 0../src/file_storage.cpp:1286in C++17 this could be string_view

relevance 0../src/kademlia/routing_table.cpp:289This is temporary. For now, only report the largest routing table (of potentially multiple ones, for multi-homed systems) in next major version, break the ABI and support reporting all of them in the dht_stats_alert
relevance 0../src/kademlia/routing_table.cpp:314arvidn note when it's across IPv4 and IPv6, adding (dht_global_nodes) would make sense. in the future though, where we may have one DHT node per external interface (which may be multiple of the same address family), then it becomes a bit trickier
relevance 0../src/kademlia/routing_table.cpp:518this need to take bucket "prefix" into account. It should be unified with add_node_impl()
relevance 0../src/kademlia/put_data.cpp:92what if o is not an instance of put_data_observer? This need to be redesigned for better type safety.
relevance 0../src/kademlia/node_id.cpp:66it's a little bit weird to return 159 - leading zeroes. It should probably be 160 - leading zeroes, but all other code in here is tuned to this expectation now, and it doesn't really matter (other than complexity)
