[tor-relays] Slow relay speeds for Australian geographic location(s)

Hi Mathew,

I run multiple exit nodes in the US and have what could be the same
problem.  My first node 'apexio' has been running with 99.99% uptime for
four months and the bandwidth usage is minimal and dropping.  I'm using
Linux with very fast hardware and ample resources.

I mentioned all the specifics on this list a couple weeks ago and no one
had a solution.


A customer of mine also has the same issue.

Something is going on that's NOT related to hardware or network speed, but
is a symptom of some issue in the Tor network.

Recently I turned up nineteen additional nodes on that server and they're
averaging 60Mbps of overall throughput.  CPU load is still 0.00.
