[tor-relays] tor network "loses" ~50 relays/day due to bw auth problem

Hi operators,

I believe especially the DirAuth/bwauth operators are working on this, but I would like to understand the ongoing issues.

On my relay (8827944C4BDCBDAC9079803F47823403C11A9B7A), I see a decline in consensus weight fraction basically since May 14 (that’s where the first drop in weight fraction occurred) and the same in traffic of course. The connections went down by more than 50% from 1500-1600 to now about 700 (total values). I did notice the strange peak in traffic yesterday, but it’s now back to low levels. My relay is of course working nowhere near capacity (I have set up a RelayBandwithRate of 2MB and a Burst of 5MB) and I hope you understand that's a bit frustrating for me.

At the moment I just see urras missing from the consensus and the measured entries of longclaw are quite a bit off the chart (I’ve subscribed to the consensus-health mailing list) - is that all what you need to have the tor traffic not distributed consistently (at least from my point of view) any more?
Most importantly: Can I do something to help?
