It's on the todo list to upgrade to Win7 (which by the way is already
off "standard" support by MS and onto the "extended" support meaning
only security updates from now on; but since I'm not touching Win8
with a long pole, it'll have to be Win7). If I have time I'll
multiboot into Linux, we'll see...

| _Empire64_ I Vidalia = Bandwidth: 9.00 KB/s II Message Log, Vidalia

| Onioo (2) 80.0 kBps (advertised) V Blutmagie (3) 3.3 kBps

| _Ueberwachungsstaat_ I Tor Network Map, Vidalia = Bandwidth: 12.00
| KB/s II Message Log, Vidalia => Upload 13.3 kBps, Download 16.0
| kBps III Atlas (4) 92.7 kBps IV Onioo 92.5 kBps (Advertised) V
| Blutmagie (6) 1.3 kBps

You have the same problem I have, the "tested" speed it not correct...

| So the kBps from Blutmagie seem to be too low and Atlas and Onioo
| to high. Perhaps there the count-logic is different. The most
| reliable numbers should be the ones calculated from the message
| log, assuming that Tor counts the bits correctly. Also the number
| from the Network Map fits well.

My message log doesn't show speed, it shows the heartbeat and few
other stats every N minutes, but no speed.

| What works to my experience, when your relay does not do anything
| at all: Turn it off for one or two days and start it again with
| changed port numbers. Sometimes my relay forwards only 10 to 20 MB
| a day, and in that case I try to fix it the prescribed way. Most
| times it works, sometimes not.

Oh, traffic does go through my relay, but nothing like before (say,
last year) even tho I've increased the allowed bandwidth. And I'm of a
mind that I dont see more than 10k/s traffic because the global
directory lists me as a 10k/s node :-(
