Get a new Tor identity within a certain period of time

Hello,
I have installed Tor on Linux box and users on the network use it as a proxy. I want the Tor to get a new IP address every 10 minutes (New Tor identity). Does Tor have an option for this?

Thank you.

And what would be the scope of getting a new identity every 10 minutes?

This is already the default behavior, isn’t it?

Hello,
Thank you so much for your reply.
Really? Where is this written in the configuration file?

Hello,
Thank you so much, but this requires Python to be installed!

Hello,
Thank you so much for your reply.
To find nodes with more speed and traffic as well as new IP address.

MaxCircuitDirtiness NUM
Feel free to reuse a circuit that was first used at most NUM seconds ago, but never attach a new stream to a circuit that is too old. For hidden services, this applies to the last time a circuit was used, not the first. Circuits with streams constructed with SOCKS authentication via SocksPorts that have KeepAliveIsolateSOCKSAuth also remain alive for MaxCircuitDirtiness seconds after carrying the last such stream. (Default: 10 minutes)

Hello,
Thanks again.
If this is the default option, why don’t I see such an option in my torrc file?
