I just reprocessed a bunch of log files, some of which apparently containing lines that cannot be parsed. Here's the output:

It seems like commenting out a raise statement fixes this:

diff --git a/onionperf/ b/onionperf/

+                #raise

Is this the correct fix? If so, would it make sense to add a unit test to test this behavior?

It looks like the line would be ignored anyway if the parser was unable to cope with it. Looks to me like the raise was there for debugging purposes. I've submitted a pull request which fixes this and adds a couple of tests to validate the behaviour:
