What happens if there are too many clients, and not enough exit nodes?

Is the bandwidth shared, or do some circuits just fail?

Is there a way to gauge client capacity of the tor network?


In case you may forget, at <http://www.noreply.org/tor-running-routers/>, there's a vivid picture of bandwidth used and bandwidth capacity -- seems Tor network is capable of many more clients. :)

As far as your question is concerned, the picture of total traffic tells something, but doesn't tell everything, e.g., how about exit node capacity vs. client capacity?

IMHO, the answer is self-regulation. If Tor network was overcrowded, then some impatient clients left, then, recovered.
