Hi nusenu,

Since you posted to tor-dev I guess you're asking for community input
too. About your use cases, Onionoo is for obtaining data about running
relays, not tor network health, or BWAuth activity. You can answer
this question by looking at the latest consensus data from CollecTor,
counting relays, and unmeasured. So this use case is out of the scope
of Onionoo use. Your second use case doesn't help the operator debug.

What does not being measured mean in the context posed by the ticket?
(whichever, boolean or int)

a) the relay was not measured
b) the relay was supposed to be measured but didn't respond
c) the relay was supposed to be measured but the measurement was
blocked due to network interference
d) the relay was measured but the threshold number of measurements was
not obtained
... and so on. Not being measured doesn't help with debugging. The
only thing which matters is being `measured` in which case a relay has
consensus weight.

The only data which can be relied upon, and which is also a property
of a running relay that has been measured is consensus weight. You can
track this using the Weights document.

I hope that helps
