Instead of starting to download 16MB and adjust the size depending on how long it takes to download until a maximum of 1GB, we could:

  • Choose the initial size based on the bandwidth that the relay report
  • (Try to download for a maximum of 10secs? and) stop downloading data when we have learnt enough

karsten and irl (CCed) plan to implement in onionperf the method they explained to me, which basically is:
Start downloading a big file and check (maybe every second?) when the download speed stabilizes, ie, doesn't change too much with respect to previous values. The speed at this point is the speed to be reported.

Keywords: changes-version-patch added

Add keyword to tickets that imply a change of version patch, since it might affect the results, but in a backwards compatible way and doesn't add functionality.
