[tor-relays] Relay Consensus Low

My tor node: 

Doesn't ever go up above 8800 or so.

One thing I notice in Nyx is that my connections never go above about 
2000 in and out connections.

I have advertised bandwidth of just shy of a gigabit in my config.  I 
understand now that the "advertised bandwidth" is calculated based on 
observed traffic through the node, which while more reliable and avoids 
abuse, seems to be counter productive to a degree.

Ultimately what do I need to do to get more traffic through my node? 
Cause I have a 2Gbps fiber sitting here basically doing nothing so I was 
giving 1Gbps to tor :)

Config --------------
RunAsDaemon 1
ControlPort 9051
ORPort 9001
ORPORT [2001:559:c290::fffb]:9001
RelayBandwidthRate 45 MB  # Throttle traffic to 100KB/s (800Kbps)
RelayBandwidthBurst 50 MB # But allow bursts up to 200KB/s (1600Kbps)
DirPort 9030 #
ExitPolicy reject *:* # no exits allowed
ExitPolicy reject6 *:*

Any suggestions appreciated.
