`simple-bw-scanner` (also called `sbws`) is a Tor bandwidth scanner that
produces bandwidth measurements files to be used by Directory Authorities.

The scanner builds two hop circuits consisting of the relay being measured and

a fast exit. Over these circuits it measures RTT and bandwidth.
**WARNING**: This software is *only* intended to be run by Tor directory
authorities or researches using a test Tor network, chutney or shadow.
Please, do not run this software otherwise, since the measurements would not be
used by Tor and would only create more traffic in the Tor network.
