[tor-dev] Latency measurement from exits

I haven't measured that, but maybe this is helpful: I have measured some
time ago was the latency in a hidden service (rendezvous) circuit:
Client - guard - middle - rendezvous -- middle - middle - guard - HS
I did the test by installing an OpenVPN TCP server on the hidden service
that listened on 127.0.0.1 and allocated VPN IP's in subnet 10.8.0.0/24.
The client connected via Tor's socks5 to the .onion address where the
VPN server was listening and I was able to do ICMP and UDP between vpn
client (IP: 10.8.0.5) and vpn server (IP: 10.8.0.1).
On average the latency was about 600-700 ms. The result is heavily
dependent on all the relays in the path, so I am not sure how can we
test this to an exact value. You can try now and get lucky with only
fast relays in the path and have a 400 ms latency and you can try later
and be less lucky and have a 800 ms latency.
