The following relay is shown as Running even though it's offline for many hours.


Is it relly a bug or something to do with remote measurement delays?

That's a bug in Onionoo. The details file that Atlas uses was not updated when the relay went offline. Here's what Onionoo says (note the relays_published, last_seen and running fields):

    "version": "1.1",
    "relays_published": "2014-10-14 14:00:00",
    "relays": [
            "nickname": "lzkill",

            "last_changed_address_or_port": "2014-10-12 20:00:00",
            "first_seen": "2014-10-12 20:00:00",
            "running": true,
            "flags": [
            "country": "br",
            "country_name": "Brazil",
            "latitude": -10,
            "longitude": -55,
            "as_number": "AS18881",
            "as_name": "Global Village Telecom",

            "bandwidth_burst": 131072,
            "observed_bandwidth": 62464,
            "advertised_bandwidth": 62464,
            "exit_policy": [
                "reject *:*"
            "exit_policy_summary": {
                "reject": [

            "consensus_weight_fraction": 8.181678e-7,
            "guard_probability": 0,
            "middle_probability": 0.0000024542592,
            "exit_probability": 0,
            "recommended_version": true
    "bridges_published": "2014-10-14 13:37:03",
    "bridges": []

And here's the (correctly updated) summary for that relay:

    "version": "1.1",
    "relays_published": "2014-10-14 14:00:00",
    "relays": [
            "n": "lzkill",
            "f": "946D6DD1E55E80C6CBCFC2C6A9DA132E410346CF",
            "a": [
            "r": false
    "bridges_published": "2014-10-14 13:37:03",
    "bridges": []

Thanks for reporting!

This issue has been around for a while:

No, #9814 is a different issue. That one is about presentation. It says: "Atlas should make clear when relay details come from outdated consensus". It's perfectly valid that Onionoo returns details about non-running relays. That ticket only asks for making that clear in Atlas.

But you're right that this issue has been around for a while. Looks like I filed #12651 for this 3 months ago. (I was aware of the issue, but wasn't sure whether it was already filed; looks like it was.) Closing this ticket as duplicate.
