After setting up a relay, I noticed that my log file was full of "Your computer is too slow to handle this many circuit creation requests" messages. This seems odd to me, as htop reports that my CPU and memory usage is nowhere near full.
I'm running on two cores and 8 GB of RAM, and it's averaging about 40% usage on both cores and 2 GB of RAM usage.
I've used the tor-ddos iptables rules that were suggested in a previous message thread, but it doesn't seem to have done anything to address the problem. (GitHub - Enkidu-6/tor-ddos). I've also configured /etc/sysctl.conf to support a traffic flow as outlined in the github repo.

Is this something that I should be concerned about, and work to mitigate? I am able to migrate my relay to much more powerful hardware, but obviously that would incur additional cost, so if there is some way to fully utilize my existing hardware I would prefer that.
