How to change "MaxMemInQueues"?

My obsf4 proxy keeps complaining and having to delete circuits because it only has 256MB of RAM to work with. I asked a robot and according to her it’s a hardcoded value (in src/or/config.c) that I have to compile my own copy of Tor in order to change. I don’t mind compiling from source but that sounds kinda overkill so I’m hoping she’s wrong.

should not be hard-coded, it can be set with this line in your torrc:

MaxMemInQueues 1024 MB       # Limit Memory usage to

How much memory does the system the obsf4 proxy is running on have?
Maybe you could post the error message from your logs?

That was an easy fix! Thank you! It had plenty of memory, it just was limiting itself to the default 256MB
