#28545 new defect

Description (last modified by teor)

In #22453, we might remove relay bandwidth self-tests in Tor. So we want sbws to send bandwidth for Tor's entire 10 second bandwidth interval.

Let's set the download_target to 11 seconds (to cover the 10 second interval), and adjust the min to 7 and the max to 14?

Description: modified (diff)

Setting min would quadruple the bandwidth and time needed for each test. Let's set target instead?

If the scanner is configured to make multiple bandwidth measurements (which it is by default), then it will make measurements back-to-back until it has that number of acceptable-length measurements.

So any single measurement wouldn't necessarily have to last the entire 10 second period.

I'm assuming the goal is to give relays at least 10 seconds of traffic so they can get a nicer observed bandwidth in the absence of real client traffic.

Milestone: sbws 1.0 (MVP must)sbws 1.1

I don't think we need this ticket in sbws 1.0.

After we deploy sbws, we'll know how important it is.
