Description

Tor 0.2.2.34 on FreeBSD 8.2 currently use 2-3% of the CPU but still logs this:

Dec 13 20:17:06.403 [warn] Your computer is too slow to handle this many circuit creation requests! Please consider using the MaxAdvertisedBandwidth config option or choosing a more restricted exit policy. [1447 similar message(s) suppressed in last 60 seconds]

The relay is quite new and named fejk. It used 100% of one CPU core when it started to get a lot of traffic after some days. I have created a second tor process named fejk1 to share the usage over two cores. But the above message occurs now with only 1 Mbit/s of traffic an a low CPU usage. #4386 might experience the same problem but I see it logged more frequently. Any ideas?

Looks like this might be related to #4345 because after some time I also got the message "[notice] cull_wedged_cpuworkers(): Bug: closing wedged cpuworker. Can somebody find the bug?" and "[err] cpuworker_main(): Bug: writing response buf failed. Exiting.". Closing this ticket.
