Ok i have found out that this is due to directory mirroring. I will have to turn directory mirroring off until i get qos working.

Tor is working on making even such servers useable as directory mirrors,
and maybe already does it for you.  Maybe you can give the
latest version a try?  It's supposed to not give clients an (old-style)
directory if the writebucket is empty.

If you do try it please let us know how it works out for you.


Well i tried and it didn't seem to help me. The problem is when
i turn on directory mirroring i get so many directory requests that it saturates the connection. And since bandwidthrate doesn't check the out bound traffic which is what directory traffic mainly is it just uses all the bandwidth the connection has. The rest of the tor traffic hasn't been anywhere near the the bandwidth limit i have set.
