Relay inbound and outbound connections explanation

I am running a relay and viewing it with nyx. One thing I am confused by is the inbound and outbound connections. How can my node have many outbound connections but no inbound connections? I assume I don’t quite understand the definition used here for inbound and outbound. Does anyone know the exact definition/meaning here?

The relay looks to be working and has some bandwidth use, but I don’t understand how that happens with no inbound connections. Thanks for any doc links or details.

Have you checked your relay stats on the Tor website for more info on what’s going on with your relay? When I was running a relay, this was more useful to me than Nyx.
