https://torstatus.blutmagie.de/ is for operators.

But the data on the site is created for Tor clients.

torstatus and relay search have different features.

If you're looking for a missing feature, you should try the other one:

You can rent a relay anywhere in the world. (I rent a few machines in

But you'll need to learn ssh and remote administration.

It's like using Terminal, but you're talking to a machine on the other
side of the world.
