Simple Bandwidth Scanner for the Tor network

Simple Bandwidth Scanner (sbws) scan the Tor network and generates bandwidth list files (also called measurements).

Bandwidth list files contain the Tor relays' bandwidths scaled. The are read by the Tor directory authorities to assign weights to the relays during heir votes. The specification of the Bandwidth list format is in https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/bandwidth-file-spec.txt

The scanner (also called generator) builds two hop circuits consisting of the relay being measured and a fast exit. Over these circuits it measures download performance.

**WARNING**: This software is intended to be run by researchers using a test Tor network, such as chutney or shadow, or by the Tor bandwidth authorities on the public Tor network. Please do not run this software on the public Tor network unless you are one of the Tor bandwidth authorities, to avoid creating unnecessary traffic.
