+title: Relay speed test
+date: 2021-05-28 16:00:00
+severity: ongoing
+  - Network Experiments
+section: experiment
+## What changed?
+We are sending short bursts of traffic through every relay, to make
+the relay capacity estimates more accurate. See the [mail thread on
+tor-relays](https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-relays/2021-May/019649.html) for more information.
+## When did it start?
+Around 2021-05-17 16:00:00 UTC.
+## When did it stop?
+Not yet, it's still ongoing as far as we know.
+## What potential problems to look for, and how to report them?
+Relays with a more accurate view of their own bandwidth could attract
+higher traffic load, which could expose other configuration issues
+(like not enough file descriptors available or not enough memory), so
+be sure to watch your relay's logs for issues.
+If you think something has gone wrong with the experiment, please
+follow-up to the tor-relays@ announcement mail mentioned above.
