[tor-relays] Overloaded state indicator on relay-search

Thank you for the reference that confirms the Advertised Bandwidth is from the Tor client.
I still don't understand why my Tor nodes aren't able to initiate a 10 second burst higher than 4MB/s. An Internet Speed Test is able to sustain a burst near my advertised 250Mb/s up and down.
Am I right in thinking the answer to this question is... It is what it is?

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)?
