Re: aes performance

Tor FAQ:

I have more than one CPU. Does this help?

Yes. You can set your NumCpus config option in torrc to the number of CPUs you have, and Tor will spawn this many cpuworkers to deal with public key operations in parallel.

nope, just one core is used by tor for aes crypto. So the "openssl speed aes"
command should give an idea about tor's throughput.

Are you sure?
