no reason for my node to be hibernating, no caps...

> 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".
