BandwidthBurst rate being used constantly
I have three machines, all configured exactly the same way acting as round-robin web servers. They get an even distribution of traffic, averaging 50kbps in and 200kbps out and have had an even distribution amongst the nodes for a year and a half.
I installed tor on one of the nodes to test an exit enclave setup, with the idea that if it worked well, I would deploy it to the other nodes (as well as elsewhere). I used the following configuration:
SocksPort 0 # what port to open for local application connections SocksListenAddress 127.0.0.1 # accept connections only from localhost Log notice syslog RunAsDaemon 1 DataDirectory /var/lib/tor Nickname auk Address my.ip.here OutboundBindAddress my.ip.here ContactInfo my.contact.info.here ORPort 9001 ExitPolicyRejectPrivate 0 ExitPolicy accept my.ip.here:80 ExitPolicy accept my.ip.here:443 ExitPolicy reject : BandwidthRate 250 KB BandwidthBurst 1MB
As you can see, I set BandwidthBurst to 1MB, and BadwidthRate to be 250KB, but looking at my bandwidth usage statistics, I see that this node is using 1MB the entire time, averaging 872kbps in and 1.03M out (almost always at this rate, with some fluctuations up to 2.35M in and 2.71M out.
This doesn't seem like what I would expect for these bandwidth settings, I could be misunderstanding how these are applied, and if so please tell me what I am missing.
Thanks for your work on tor, its appreciated!
