[tor-talk] Why my relay doesn't get any traffic and doesn't show up in the list torstatus.blutmagie.de ?

You should see indication of Tor's self-test in the log file you specified
(/var/log/tor). If you don't see a log file or an empty log file, I would
lean toward a configuration issue.
If the logs indicated that the self-test has successfully completed as
Roman mentioned, you may just have to wait. New relays don't get much
traffic at first.
A new relay, assuming it is reliable and has plenty of bandwidth, goes
