    initial v1  
    11The throttling techniques in these patches attempt to distinguish persistent bulk flows from bursty flows using approaches based on unsupervised learning. I would want additional analysis before recommending these get deployed as-is.

    3 We could consider providing a torrc option where clients could opt-in and announce to relays that they want to be throttled, labeling their circuits as worse-priority circuits. Guards could then throttled those clients to reduce the load that those worse-priority circuits impose on the network. This would remove the unsupervised learning parts and greatly simplify the algorithms. Not sure who would opt-in though...
