Re: Memory Leak with BGP?

The Dude definitely played a role. I had multiple crashes this morning. Just opening the device in The Dude would crash the router. I disabled SNMP and RouterOS probing for that device in The Dude and that stopped the crashing. Too early to tell if it stops the memory leak, but the 30 minutes of out...

Re: Interface Stats and CPU Usage not correct after upgrade

Just a note on the "minimal speed gain". With multi-cpu enabled, my CPU usage is about 7-10%. Once I turned it off, I now have 30-35% usage. This is with about 400 PPPoE sessions and about 20Mbps traffic usage. That is not a minimal impact!
