Currently the CPU is only using 40% of 1 core (out of 4). All of it from 
Tor when BW is close to 250Mbps
When routing from the LAN (iperf, downloading stuff etc) the machine 
easily pushes 500Mbps.
It can of course be other local resources that Tor needs. I have set a 
lot of networking parameters in sysctl.conf many years ago (from 
torservers,net I believe), but I don't really know what all of that 
stuff means.
As to limit by location (Sweden), not much to do about that :)

I'll wait a bit longer to see what happens and then run a second 

Thanks for an excellent reply
