It's running longer longer than I would have expected. That may be
because it takes a while for the clients to find out that your relay got
out of hibernation.

When the relay is available all day, it's likely that it will
permanently run at the set RelayBandwithRate (that's what happens with
my relays).
If you're not running a directory mirror, your relay will send and
receive about 2 GiB each day (4 GiB total).

Someone else may have the answer to that.
