Re: Bandwidth shaping by time of day / week / month? Adding that info to Tor protocol?

I'd like to ramp the rate on my end-node up to the full 50KB capacity of
the line when
I'm done using my ADSL connection for the day, but can't now do this
without stopping / restarting Tor, re-writing the config file, etc.

You don't need to restart tor. Just update the config file and then do something like

kill -HUP `cat /var/run/tor/tor.pid`

I guess you could have several config files and use cron to copy whichever one you wanted to use at that time to /etc/tor, or you could update just the bandwith section by calling  e.g. sed.

Hope this helps,
