What is the best specific for fast relay?

I'm trying to setup Tor relay, just a middle, not an Exit.

I'm looking for the best configuration for the 100 mb / s. My current torrc is:

V3AuthoritativeDirectory 1
V3AuthVotingInterval 30 minutes

DisableAllSwap 1
AvoidDiskWrites 1

NumCPUs 4
DownloadExtraInfo 1
FetchUselessDescriptors 1

ORPort 9001
DirPort 9030 # what port to advertise for directory connections

RelayBandwidthRate  50 MB  # Throttle traffic to 100KB/s (800Kbps)
RelayBandwidthBurst 100 MB # But allow bursts up to 200KB/s (1600Kbps)
MaxAdvertisedBandwidth 100MB

ExitPolicy reject *:*

What is the best configuration options to prevent highload on the my workstation, and achieve as much cool for the Tor Network as possible?

I'm talking about:

  • Setup big bandwidths between Exits and Entries, and skip low. To prevent DDOS on the side of OS's IP addr table.

  • Setup Tor daemon in such way to prevent high load on the Disk sub-system, like Avoid Disk Writes, etc.

  • Keep highest and more relevancy Tor relays ( much more oldest ) in work with me.

Any ways to keep full 50 mb/s, the half of my real speed in job.

Currently, for the whole of week, my arm, tor console face give only:

flags: Fast, Running, V2Dir, Valid             exit policy: reject *:*

page 1 / 5 - m: menu, p: pause, h: page help, q: quit
Download (13.4 Kb/sec   - avg: 138.8 Kb/sec, total: 520.7 MB):     Upload (145.3 Kb/sec  - avg: 190.2 Kb/sec, total: 710.7 MB)

I don't know how, I don't know why, it doesn't take my bandwidth. Doesn't take more than 1mb/s. What is it? My OS is the last Ubuntu.
