Peer "Ratings"

I've noticed that the recent git commits contain a "Rating" column in the network status tab. What exactly is meant by this? Is this a metric for how often a node could be connected to, or what is measured here?

Add ratings to peers - outbound peers now have a rating - it's also shown in the network status tab - currently it's between -1 to +1, changes by 0.1 steps and uses a hyperbolic function 0.05/(1.0 - rating) to convert rating to probability with which we should connect to that node when randomly chosen - it increases when we successfully establish a full outbound connection to a node, and decreases when we fail to do that - onion nodes have priority when using SOCKS ( from https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage/commit/a0bbd21efcd95a7bff9984f52a7cf0e98d8ecea8 )

Yes, basically, PyBitmessage now tracks whether outgoing connection attempts were successful or not, and then uses this to adjust the likelihood it will try to connect to the node in the future. Over time it learns which nodes are "good" and which are "bad". Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

Very cool upgrade that will allow faster connections. And that prepares everything for "trusted peer authentification" extension of bitmessage :-)

Nice upgrade. How to check how many nodes we have in every version? Like https://bitnodes.21.co/nodes/

That link was bullshit.

I now added tooltips to the column headers so that people don't have to ask about it. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer
