overloaded routers in Tor

Hi all,
  It has been mentioned in papers and documents that imbalance in router
load distribution is one of the factors contributing to delay in receiving
responses in Tor and that the reason for this imbalance is due to the router
selection algorithm that is biased towards nodes that advertise high
bandwidth availability. Does anyone know if there has been a detailed study
of measuring what fraction of routers are overloaded in Tor and why they are

Any pointers would be highly appreciated.
