Thanks John, glad to hear the average is more in line. Sorry if you're
already aware of this but here's a nice read that might help...


It can take a long while for the bandwidth authorities to warm up to
relays. If you're seeing slack in a new-ish relay that's likely it.

That one does show more promising numbers, but still generally still tends to fall far short of my 500KB/s allocation. (Seems to usually be from 70B/s to 250KB/s with bursts higher.) But if this is the actual rates I'm getting, then I am going to have to assume I've either got something configured wrong or my routers aren't allowing my servers to get up to full speed. (Both are probably equally likely. lol)
