Re: [tor-relays] Understanding bandwidth rate

Why do you claim burst is not a rate?

If the amount of data is not measured relative to time, how is it relevant?

the internal variable is RelayBandwidthBurst

Doesn't "bandwidth" infer rate?  BW is defined as "a measurement of bit-rate"

Bandwidth (limit: 16 Mb/s, burst: 32 Mb/s, measured: 48.6 Kb/s):

Why is bandwidth limit 16 Mb/s? Why bandwidth burst 32 Mb/s?
Burst is not a rate.  Its unit is <amount of data> not <amount of data
per time>.  So it should be MB or Mb.
