I d/l'ed and installed 3.26 this morning on a Dell PowerEdge 2970 quad-core with 2GB memory.
Multi-CPU now seems to be quite stable (yay!), however, I still have a memory leak. Tried three different pair of matched memory and it is still there. Leak averaged 250 MB in a 3.5 hour period. I will wait to see if it stabilizes over the next 24 hours.
I am running the optional Dude package as well, since this is optimum to work with the different subnets on this router.
More if and when it develops.
UPDATE: 20090715 0950L
After 5.5 hours, memory dropped to 651MB. First reboot since the installation of 3.26. Let's see if it was a glitch.
UPDATE: 20090715 2230L
After a little over 12 hours, we had leaked over a gig of memory. I have disabled the Dud(e) and rebooted the machine. Memory started out at 1757 MB and in 7 minutes is down to 1738 MB. Maybe it will stabilize. Let's see what the morning brings. Was the right version of the ROS posted on the website today? Seems to be still a memory leak problem even with Dude disabled.
UPDATE: 20090716 0520L
In almost 7 hours the memory leak caused about 150 MB of memory loss. This is much better than with Dude activated, but by no means acceptable. ROS 3.26 final still has a memory leak issue that really needs to get fixed.
Mikrotik, please fix up this memory leak, and things will be great with this ROS!
UPDATE: 20090716 1330L
Well, case closed. It will be fixed with the next release. Ticket No. 2009071666000112 elicited the following response from Janis:
It is DNS related problem. We fixed it already, will be included in the next release. to avoid this you can disable DNS caching.
Well, that's not really what I was hoping to hear, and I hope this will be released fixed soon.
