Tor bandwidth overuse

A non-exit relay running tor- w/ libevent-2.0.13 configured with rate 5MB (40Mbps) and burst 7MB (56Mbps) consumes approx 45 Mbps. This is not what I see on another similar relay configured for a rate of 10Mbps, which it keeps. Can this be related to libevent2?

Which relay?

The relay is named DFRI0.
Lowering the rate and burst and reloading the config with kill -HUP did not help to get the usage down. Instead I restarted the process now.

This is a false alarm due to a confused operator (me) flying a new machine. Sorry for the noise.
