If the concern is seeing the traffic of too many clients, then use
MaxAdvertisedBandwidth. That way, fewer clients will choose the relay
in their paths, but the ones that do get the entire bandwidth of the
relay. (And lower latency.)

If the concern is seeing too much Tor network data, then use

(This is also an area that needs more research: is it the volume of
network data that's bad, or the number of clients. I suspect it's the
number of clients.)
