#2422 new enhancement

Multiple Helpers

Reported by: communitycube Owned by: daira
Priority: normal Milestone: undecided
Component: code-network Version: 1.10.0
Keywords: upload-helper multiple performance reliability Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


Instead of the single value now stored in tahoe.cfg, we thought to have a list of Helpers and the possibility to select one of them from that list using a particular selection algorithm.

a- Allow for a variable number of helpers, statically contained in "BASEDIR/helpers."

b- Before sending a file to the helper

1- Check all the helpers to retrieve their statistics.

2- Choose the helper with best stats.

c- Send the cyphertext to the chosen Helper
