Actually, I was thinking to show the bandwidth of a circuit, without
additional infos, to estimate how fast a circuit may be.

If I understand well you are interested in knowing the tcp / udp ports 
contacted by exit connections ?

OK but remember my objective wasn't to collect statistics continuously. 
Of course, it would be available while monitor run.

I took note, I think relay's admin would be helped a lot with theses

Thanks you very much for your suggestions, they are relevant, and I 
would enjoy to have such data available for my relay :)
