Can we add these commands to torrc

Earlier I was speaking to another hidden service owner and the person recommended that I add the following to my hiddenservice torrc.

I am not sure if the person is using whonix or not to host their hidden service and I wouldn’t ask.

The commands are

HiddenServiceMaxStreams 10
HiddenServiceMaxStreamsCloseCircuit 1
HiddenServiceNumIntroductionPoints 10

Free Support for Whonix ™ applies.

I would ask the Tor developers and see if this is recommended or will make Whonix users stand out or make some attacks easier.

If you confirm that it doesn’t and it does improve performance, then I don’t see why I couldn’t add it.

Make sure you link your question thread on the Tor mailing list here so I can follow along.
