> I have a 250Mb pipe and have seen a maximum Advertised Bandwidth rate of 4MB/s with my Tor relay. I know resource constraint must be factored in, but I would expect better than 4MB/s. I believe I remember reading it was based on an average 10 second burst rate, but in what direction is the connection initiated?

That metrics is not overload related but I talked about advertised
bandwidth in a previous mail.[1] I suppose that one helps answering your
questions (at least apart from the why only 4MB/s one)?
