when i set a RelayBandwidthRate e.g. 600 KB/s does it mean i have 600 KB/s bidirectional (e.g. 300 KB/s download and 300 KB/s upload) or does i mean i have 600 KB/s in both directions, 1200 KB/s in total ?
Thanks for your help!

RelayBandwidthRate - like all rate directives in
torrc is same-in-both-ways, i.e. 600 means 600in+600out. If you're throttling your bandwidth - if you need to maintain a constant 24/7 operations in a free/hosting-included traffic limits, it's not enough to specify just this setting, drop a line if you need full details. It works a bit different as it should be in real world.
UPDATE: So - here it how it goes to actually work as it should from the docs:
BandwidthBurst XKByteswill actually limit the speed in most of cases. To limit it strictly use 75% of
AccountingStart daywill ensure the daily limit to be kept. Without it there can be some overruns - not big ones, but there are some.
AccountingRule in|out|sum- use it according to your hosting plan
