If you look at the 1 month graph, this does not seem to be unusual for your

The bandwidth authorities measured your relay as being able to handle
approximately 2490 KByte/s. (High 4370, Low 1410, Median 2490.)

(large page)

Your relay's observed bandwidth is also 2.39 MByte/s (hover over the
bandwidth heading in atlas for these details), so its consensus weight
will be limited to approximately ~2447 (KByte/s) anyway.

If you want to increase these measurements, try increasing the BandwidthRate
and BandwidthBurst in your relay's torrc, and waiting a week.

The system is functioning as designed: your relay's observed maximum
bandwidth is almost identical to the bandwidth measured by the bandwidth

If you want to fix this, add more bandwidth.
