Only the SFP+ ports support 2.5G, and only when you use a multi-rate SFP+ in them, like the S+RJ10.

Nonetheless, you are right that CRS317 or CRS309 is a better choice (than CRS312/326) for hardware-accelerated stateful firewall, but for a different reason: CRS317 and CRS309 have twice larger hardware memory .

Upgrading to ROS7 beta might also help. It works for a E3372h-320 in HiLink mode anyway, which behaves the same under ROS6.

Yes, and those 4 cores are a *LOT* more powerful than the ones in the CCR1009. The CCR2004 has close to 3 times the forwarding performance of the 1009.

That may not entirely map into a 3 times lowering of the CPU load of the OP, but the CCR2004 will no doubt be a step up.

Re: MikroTik newsletter May 2020 (#95)

If I remember correctly, these tests measure the speed of the payload traffic, not the speed at ethernet layer. That would explain the difference: due to the header overhead it hits the (theoretical) 35Gbps ceiling. That's not what the test results indicate; 1518 bytes is a full 1500-byte MTU Ether...

Could it be a mix? The only part of the packet that uses CPU power is the header, the payload is just using memory bandwidth. Maybe with the 1518 byte packets its memory is bandwidth starved, and the CPU isn't maxed out. When it get smaller packets we use more CPU - as the payload gets smaller - th...

The disadvantage of proxy-arp is mainly that it causes all ARP requests to reply with the router address, and so internal (to your LAN) traffic can end up being "routed" and this can load your router or reduce the performance of that traffic (e.g. when you have a fileserver and workstations exchang...

Yes. Traffic between hosts in the same IP subnet that are on the same switch will not leave the switch they are on, so it will never reach your hAP. If you want to force the traffic to do so, put them in different subnets, so the hAP has to get involved as a router.
