Hi All,

I am a noob to the Tor community and its fun serving Tor as one of the relays. I am planning to setup multiple relays however before i jump into anything further i setup one machine as a non exit relay to test how much traffic i can route.. Not to forget i also read the article on torproject.org which mentions the life cycle of a relay.. Now its the 4th day of my relay and the traffic is almost nothing but as per the article i must see an increase in traffic on day 4.. The machine is ON for almost an hour now and the traffic is too less. 

Received : 3.62MB
Sent : 1.6MB

                                                    My dedicated bandwidth to Tor is 60 KB/s.. Do i need to keep the machine on 24/7 because as of now its just ON for 3 to 4 hours.. Assuming that the traffic is low on the entire Tor network is this kind of traffic normal or something is wrong on my side..? Your help will me much appreciated..

Thanks and Regards,
