P2P maintenance worker.
This worker enforces the connection bounds defined on the command-line or/and the configuration file.
The maintenance process is launched: . When any of the following future is resolved P2p_trigger.wait_too_few_connectionsP2p_trigger.wait_too_many_connections . When maintain is called . After maintenance_idle_time if none of the other conditions have been met.
If the number of connections is above the limit, the maintainer kills existing connections.
If below the limit, it tries to connect to points available from P2p_pool. If not enough connections can be obtained, it requests new points from P2p_pool using P2p_pool.broadcast msg, and wakes up the P2p_discovery worker. It then waits for new peers or points by waiting on futures P2p_trigger.wait_new_peerP2p_trigger.wait_new_point This is reiterated indefinitely every require_new_points_time.
How long to wait at most before running a maintenance loop.
private_mode : bool;
If true, only open outgoing/accept incoming connections to/from peers whose addresses are in trusted_peers, and inform these peers that the identity of this node should be revealed to the rest of the network.
