my mail to tor-relays didn't reach the list (send via mixmaster)
so I copy it here (I suppose non-subscribers are not allowed)
Feel free to send a link to tor-relays pointing to this entry.



I would like to share my experience running a Sheevaplug (Debian)
as a middle relay at a home Internet uplink with a maximal
upload bandwidth of 4 Mbps.

The Sheevaplug was dedicated to run Tor only,
so the system load and traffic you see on the following
graphs was exclusively generated by Tor.

Occasionally the log showed the following warning:
"[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."

but otherwise it seamed to run fast enough to handle 4 Mbps of Tor traffic coming in and going out.

The Sheevaplug seams to have a heat problem when running 24/7 with
steady load. My Sheevaplug unfortunately died (power supply).
Many other report the same problem:

(it would be interessting to know if the dreamplug has a similar power supply issue)
The OS was running on a pen drive.

I ordered a B3 to see if that one is better suited to run 24/7

  • but has also a much higher price..
