I have recently installed a new tor relay (non-exit) in a new vsp. For
several days now its bandwidth, according to ARM, is in the bits/second
and there seems to be some problem reading its own torrc file. Also,
while it had four connections for a while, there are none now.
Part of ARM quote:
[ARM NOTICE] Read last day of bandwidth history from state file (-7502
seconds is missing)
[ARM WARN] The torrc differs frm what tor's using. You an issue a
sighup to reload the torrc values by pressing x. .....
and for good measure
[ARM NOTICE] Tor is preventing system utiliites like netstat and lsof
from working. This means arm can't provide you with connection
Sometimes I also get that the data directory is not configured but I
have left this commented out in the torrc file, being satisfied to use
I do get a "normal running" flag on tor stats and a bandwidth of zero.
While I am very familiar with Linux in general this install is on debian
which is new for me.
Any ideas on where I might start to sort this out would be appreciated.
