Great. Thanks!

Are you referring to any specific missing bits, or raised issues? I
thought I'd addressed them all in my reply.

I have kept my ‘1.9-’ version base, to highlight that Nyx 2.0 is
supposedly its own thing; a complete re-write since Arm 1.4.5.

Kind regards,



The current package:

(define-public nyx
  ;; The last ‘arm’ relase was 5 years ago.  Meanwhile, python3 support
  ;; has been added and the software was renamed to ‘nyx’.

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

@item connections (with IP address, hostname, fingerprint, and consensus
@item bandwidth, processor, and memory usage,
@item the relay's current configuration,
@item logged events,
@item and much more.
@end enumerate

Potential client and exit connections are scrubbed of sensitive
