Question to our Tor people.

I operate a middle relay myself and I noticed that Nyx (tor monitoring tool) displays a very different throughput (mb/GB a day) than tor itself.

How does that work?

    What do you mean with "tor itself"? Relay metrics or journal logs or…?

    @kenogo Logs really. Tor is reporting about 300-400gb a day (which would average to a 4mb-ish continuous throughput but nyx is reporting ~2tb a day. (Calculated by me).

    System traffic varies between 6-20mbs and my sites etc aren't that busy so most is coming from tor.

    weird, I haven't actually looked at what the logs say in my case, I'll take a look

    Mine works fine. My server has been up for 30 days since last maintenance, and tor log says it has sent 16590.31GB since then, which amounts to 6.4 MB/s. Both of these values show up the same in nyx.

    @linuxxx From what did you calculate the 2 TB per day from nyx?

    In case you keep nyx running in tmux or screen, you should have the tor log right underneath the bandwidth graphs in nyx. So maybe you could just take a screenshot of that and it would have all the information?

    @kenogo Literally remembering the amount it's currently at according to nyx and looking at it again next day same time haha

    @Linux Awesome, that'd be my preference as it displays way more :D

    And you can basically go with vnstat too :)
