Right, we can change the 3x3 Torperfs we're running to write their paths
to disk. But in the question above I was referring to the (fourth)
Torperf run on torperf.tpo that requests a 50 KiB file every minute. You
asked me to set that one up a few weeks ago. Shall I keep it running?
And if so, what are we doing with the data?

I'm going to do the upgrade today and will let you know if something breaks.
