Zram

Hi All,

Is Zram possible with Gargoyle? Enabling tor relay on wdr3600 generates lots of I/O and slows down the device significantly. I was wondering if Zram may help. The device is flashed with 1.10.X (Built 20180108-0525 git@73868cc)

Is manual Tor upgrade allowed

Hi All,

Gargoyle 1.10.x bundles Tor 0.3.1.7.

Am I going to mess up anything if I manually upgrade Tor to the current recommended versions, e.g., 0.3.1.10 or 0.3.2.9? Or is it not allowed at all?

Install Transmission-daemon on Gargoyle 1.10

It seems that the plugin sources for chaos_calmer have changed (temporarily?), which makes Gargoyle plugin presets cease to work. I have to manually add a few archive locations before transmission-deamon installation, eg., http://archive.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/packa...

Re: Two swap space on two attached usb devices

it worked!! thanks. just found a site that says: If two or more areas have the same priority, and it is the highest priority available, pages are allocated on a round-robin basis between them. btw, when the router reboots the priorities will be different again, right? is there a way to make this cha...

Two swap space on two attached usb devices

Hi All, I created two swap partitions but cannot assign the same priority to both of them. With /dev/sda2 already setup as swap with priority -1, the command "swapon -p -1 /dev/sdb2" will only setup sdb2 at priority -2. Quote: "One great thing about the Linux swapping subsystem is tha...

Re: QoS, slow CPU, fast WAN

Big thanks to all for the info. Yes will most likely upgrade to a faster router (eg. Linksys wrt ac1200 or anything that our experienced users suggest here) to match my WAN speed (100mbps up/down) and use case (Tor relay, NAS, VPN, transmission). Cheers

Re: QoS, slow CPU, fast WAN

What's your router model? Enabling QoS will put more strain on the router, so it will actually make your internet speed "slightly" slower. Although, if you don't use Quotas at all, disabling the Bandwidth Monitor will actually help significantly at reaching higher download speeds, even wi...

QoS, slow CPU, fast WAN

Hi All,

Just wondering, if router's CPU speed is the constraint and WAN speed is not the bottleneck, will QoS help in any way?

Re: [solved]WDR3600 won't run Tor server on Gargoyle 1.10.0

No, you can’t set that flag to 0 in the configuration mode that Gargoyle uses. It shouldn’t use that much RAM. But you could setup a swap partition. OK, got it. Had a swap setup and running. One more question if I may ask: is there a way to reuse tor server's old fingerprint, after reinstallation?

Re: [solved]WDR3600 won't run Tor server on Gargoyle 1.10.0

May I ask if there's a way to disable the directory service (V2Dir) which requires 140MB ram/cache and is too taxing for wdr3600? Will adding "DirCache 0" in torrc work?
