    We do, just don't hit the disk / CPU really hard and there should be no problems

    We allow tor relays. Most of the time isn't that big of a deal.

  • @SkylarM is the 100mbps unmetered for $5 extra truly unmetered?

    The node itself is on a 1Gbps link. As it isn't a dedicated 100mbps unmetered, I cannot guarantee anything, but feel free to use it like you stole it ;) (have a tor relay guy that used ~20TB of data last month, no issues with him!)

  • @SkylarM that's awesome :)

    Just purchased a VPS @ you, i can always upgrade to the 100mbps unmetered right?

    Of course. Just open a ticket and we can sort it out.

    You will need at least 512 MB of RAM (on OpenVZ can be 256 guaranteed + 256 burst). Less may work too, but Tor may die once every few days from running out of RAM.

    In any case, put a /etc/crontab entry to do "/etc/init.d/tor start" every 5 minutes, this will resurrect Tor if it died from OOM or from any other reason (and will do nothing if it still runs).

    Also unless the host CPU has AES acceleration and passes it to the VPS ("cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep aes"), prepare to be using a lot of CPU at high transfer speeds. Multiple cores aren't needed / won't help, the Tor process only uses 1 core.

  • Yeah we allow TOR relay. All fine.
