[tor-relays] Consensus Weight low when compared to Advertised Bandwidth

After having my Primcast.com dedicated server suspended, I signed up for 
a dedicated server from Psychz Networks in their Dallas location to run 
a FreeBSD-powered Tor exit relay.


While Psychz is a bit more expensive than Primcast/ServerRoom (and that 
is with an special offer), I get a slightly faster server and far better 
customer support.

One problem is that the consensus weight value is rather low in 
proportion to the advertised bandwidth value, when they should be 
approximately similar.

In fact, my server's CPU usage never goes beyond 1%.

Is this normal now that sbws is being deployed? Or is it bad peering on 
my relay?
