[tor-relays] Thoughts and insight before bridge moving

I was thinking of perhaps asking and checking if the list has some comments on thoughts I have.

I'm attaching a picture, hope that's not a problem, guess it's better than providing a URL to a file upload place (or maybe that's ok too?).

I've been running a TOR bridge node for some years and need to rebuild/move it.

For some time I wasn't sure how useful it was, whether or not it contributed in a useful way and I don't think it still has all the flags it could/should have?

So, for you around here with an even deeper experience of the network, looking at the stats, are there any particular insights that can be drawn from there? Is it a useful bridge, stats that could or should look differently, anything else?

BTW, there's a huge spike in connections on 9 Aug -20 (and there's been similar occasions earlier too) does that coincide with known attacks on the network or what?

I guess, should I want to continue providing service, that it's useful or possibly preferred to move over the keys/config (?) to indicate same admin (and for users if there's no noticeable interruption the move won't even be noticed I suppose).
