Measurements occur on a random basis, I think every bandwidth authority
tries to measure every relay at least once or twice every week.

Every hour, recent measurements are averaged to produce a bandwidth
weight for every relay. Then the directory authorities vote on these
bandwidths, and produce a consensus containing the low-median.
