Hey - Could I ask how you accessed those graphs ? Is it within the RouterOS Software or some other 3rd party?
Sure - I'm using LibreNMS. SNMP monitoring of RouterOS.

Unfortunately if you're using SwOS then SNMP is quite a bit neutered.

I believe you have to activate them. Once they evaluation period lapses they enter the "free tier"

You won't be able to update them though.

Re: CHR Vlans on ESXi

The only way I got traffic across VPLS tunnels was to set the vSwitch to promiscuous mode anyway. Also had to change the MPLS MTU to 1478 on ESXi 6.7. Before making these changes I was only able to ping, traceroute etc. Transferring large data would stall. Also because of my own VLAN requirements I ...

Re: Mikrotik CHR speed performance problem

What is the CPU usage? How many cores have you assigned to CHR?

Finally have you enabled FastTrack?

SwOS 2.8 for CRS328 [SOLVED]

I have a CRS328-24P-4S+ and I just noticed that on the download page that SwOS 2.8 is released. However there seems to be no version for the CRS328. Is one of the other firmware compatible? I can't use the auto upgrade feature as the switch can't access the internet as i can't specify a gateway to u...

Re: CRS328-4S-20S-4S+ First Day Fail?

When it was in RouterOS did you update it? if in RouterOS try upgrading the firmware too. I bought exactly the same model just last week and it's been running fine.

Updated rarely, only when a critical issue is found in a bugfixes-only release. Current includes the same fixes plus improvements and new f...

Re: I can install the config from RB951G-2HnD go to RB3011UiAS-RM ?

You probably could but you may need to rename or remap interfaces and adjust firewall rules etc.

Also the RB3011 does not have a wireless card.
