I can see no related messages in `/var/log/tor/log`.

I noticed

        [NOTICE] Performing bandwidth self-test...done.

in `/var/log/tor/log`. Can this be used somehow to figure out if there

I also checked with arm that the used file descriptors are below the
maximum allowed ones.

I am out of ideas. It would be really nice, if someone could help,
because otherwise the paid traffic volume will be wasted.
