issues with running a Tor relay

Hi All
 I am running a Tor relay and have set the "RelayBandwidthRate" to 40 MBytes
and "RelayBandwidthBurst" to 60 MBytes. However the Tor status page only
lists it to be 122 Kbytes/sec. I don't understand what is the reason for
this discrepancy ? Does the Tor software restrict me from advertising a
certain bandwidth ? If so , why is that being done ? Can I not advertise
higher bandwidth if I have available bandwidth to spare ?
