    178178==== Configuration Management
    179179
    180 Tor does not scale well on multi-core machines. If you run a Tor relay on a server with a fast Internet uplink (>200 MBit/s) you might want to consider running multiple Tor instances on a single server. Note: You can only run two Tor relays per public IPv4 address.

    182182If you plan to run more than a single relay, or you want to run a high capacity relay (multiple Tor instances per server) or want to use advanced security features like [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorRelaySecurity/OfflineKeys Offline Master Keys], you may want to use a configuration management for better maintainability.
     
    189189The following bash script for Debian and Ubuntu is not a configuration management but can also help you automate the steps to setup a new single Tor relay. It is meant to be run on a server that is only used for Tor.
