[tor-relays] Understanding bandwidth rate
I'm using tor 0.2.3.25 from Debian Wheezy, the exit policy is recject *.*, I'm not using the node myself.
arm shows these actual bandwidths:
Bandwidth (limit: 16 Mb/s, burst: 32 Mb/s, measured: 48.6 Kb/s):
Download (13.9 Mb/sec - avg: 11.3 Mb/sec, total: 211.9 GB):
Upload (16.0 Mb/sec - avg: 12.6 Mb/sec, total: 237.9 GB):
This is my related config:
BandwidthRate 5 MB # not set in config
BandwidthBurst 10 MB # not set in config
RelayBandwidthRate 2 MB # set in config
RelayBandwidthBurst 4 MB # set in config
I'm a bit puzzled....
Why is bandwidth limit 16 Mb/s? Why bandwidth burst 32 Mb/s?
Since I'm not using the node for anything else but relaying I except the bandwidth is more or less equal the RelayBandwidth limit I set. But the averages are so much higher than either the BandwidthRate and the RelayBandwidthRate?
What is my problem of understanding here?
