Rules can now come in 3 different formats:
- AdBlock rules
- Host lists
- Domains lists
All will be converted into domain lists and aggregated
(only AdBlock rules matching a whole domain will be kept).
Subdomains will now be matched if it is a subdomain of any domain of the
It is way faster (seconds rather than hours!) but less flexible
(although it shouldn't be a problem).
This effectively removes the parallelism of filtering,
which doubles the processing time (5->8 hours),
but this allows me to toy around with the performances of this step,
which I aim to improve drastically.
It's not very performant by itself, especially since pyre2 isn't
maintained nor really compilableinstallable anymore.
The performance seems to have decreased from 200 req/s to 0.2 req/s when
using 512 threads, and to 80 req/s using 64 req/s.
This might or might not be related,as the CPU doesn't seem to be the
I will probably add support for host-based rules, matching the
subdomains of such hosts (as for now there doesn't seem to be any other
pattern for first-party trackers than subdomains, and this would be a
very broad performace / compatibility with existing lists improvement),
and convert the AdBlock lists to this format, only keeping domains-only
