Description

Network scanners like torflow and sbws maintain detailed information about relay load. This information is only collected occasionally (perhaps once or twice a day), over a few seconds of measurement.

How sensitive is this bandwidth information?

Should we round these bandwidths to:

  • a number of decimal places?
  • a set amount of client usage that we want to protect?

I think we should tackle #26904 and #26905 after relay data usage is protected by PrivCount.

We should think about this as part of our PrivCount work.
