I would have a question regarding the bw-flags graphs on metrics.tpo 
"guard bw history"
a) Does this include the entire accumulated traffic of relays having
the guard flag? (which would include the traffic of a guard relay
acting as a middle or exit relay - if it also has the exit flag)
b) Does this only and exclusively include the entire accumulated
traffic that *enters* the tor network via all guard relays?
(to actually do that the traffic accounting on relays would have to do
accounting accordingly on a per connection type level)
Which would bring me to the next question (which would be required to
actually do the required accounting for (b)): Is a relay able to tell
whether it is being used as first or second hop solely by looking at
packets (not their source)?
Same question applies to: "exit bw history"
Does your answer also apply to ?
