“Tor metrics are the ammunition that lets Tor and other security advocates argue for a more private and secure Internet from a position of data, rather than just dogma or perspective.”
— Bruce Schneier (June 1, 2016)
We use Torperf to run performance measurements. It works by fetching files of different sizes over Tor and measuring how long that takes.
This graph shows overall performance when downloading static files of different sizes over Tor. The graph shows the range of measurements from first to third quartile, and highlights the median. The slowest and fastest quarter of measurements are omitted from the graph.
