I've already asked this question here but as of yet it has no views/answers.

I was wondering if there is any way for Tor to detect high network usage in the context of transferring large files using a hidden service.

If so, what are the default prevention steps?

  • Are you trying to measure total traffic over Tor or only traffic for large file transfers over Tor? – Neil Smithline Jul 26 '15 at 17:47
  • I'm more interested in the possibility of detecting high network usage and any prevention mechanisms. – Sebi Jul 26 '15 at 17:49
