I asked on the tor's irc.
I was told there is an option to get graphs about tor's activity.
But the freedombox.org does not support it.
A request was made on a freedombox.org forum. I do not remember which forum.
If an option to easily verify if tor works can be implemented it should
be done.

I verified my ip address on
A tor relay not found.
