> See AccountingMax and related options in tor manpage:
> AccountingMax N bytes|KBytes|MBytes|GBytes|KBits|MBits|GBits|TBytes
> Never send more than the specified number of bytes in a
> given accounting period, or receive more than that number
> in the period. For example, with AccountingMax set to 1
> GByte, a server could send 900 MBytes and receive 800
> MBytes and continue running. It will only hibernate once
> one of the two reaches 1 GByte. When the number of bytes
> gets low, Tor will stop accepting new connections and
> circuits. When the number of bytes is exhausted, Tor will
> hibernate until some time in the next accounting period.
> To prevent all servers from waking at the same time, Tor
> will also wait until a random point in each period before
> waking up. If you have bandwidth cost issues, enabling
> hibernation is preferable to setting a low bandwidth,
> since it provides users with a collection of fast servers
> that are up some of the time, which is more useful than a
> set of slow servers that are always "available".
