nyx 1.9-1.fea2091 Tor relay status monitor

Nyx (formerly Anonymizing Relay Monitor or "arm") monitors the performance of relays participating in the Tor anonymity network. It displays this information visually and in real time, using a curses-based terminal interface. This makes Nyx well-suited for remote shell connections and servers without a graphical display. It's like top for Tor, providing detailed statistics and status reports on:

  1. connections (with IP address, hostname, fingerprint, and consensus data),

  2. bandwidth, processor, and memory usage,

  3. the relay's current configuration,

  4. logged events,

  5. and much more.

Potential client and exit connections are scrubbed of sensitive information.
