Re: Number of PPPoE Sessions

http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=75864

The response I got to my ticket was 1000 Sessions.
Just 1000? So it doesn't worth for this.. A Dell R210 can handle a bit more than that (PPPoE+dynamic queue+1 MSS rule) even on version 5.25.

Re: 5000 PPPoE simultanous connections on MikroTik PPPoE server

it's been tested, you can believe me or not, but it's a fact
You tested it as a PPPoE server with 10.000 clients?

What was the clients bandwidth? How much traffic thru router?

Re: 5000 PPPoE simultanous connections on MikroTik PPPoE server

cpu usage doesn't mean anything. RouterBOARD 1000 can easily run 10000s of clients provided you use a simple firewall and PCQ for the clients. It's all about optimization As a simple firewall I believe but as PPPoE server I doubt. Every time a machine or Routerboard reaches more than 80% it increas...

Too much users for a non professional PPPoE concentrator. Maybe one day MKT kernel will handle it, but only when optimized for multi-core machines. Split it on 5 MK servers (x86 machines with dual core processors). Probably RB-1000 has enough power to route or NAT traffic for 5000 clientes, but not ...

Re: PPPOE and random queue missing problem

Hi, I don't belive that is really a bug. Linux is not suitable for terminating hundreds of PPP-Users. Regardless if it's L2TP or PPPoE. Maybe they have some small problems, so you run a little bit earlier in that problem. But over all, if you need to terminate 500+ Users, I prefer non Linux based s...

Re: PPPOE and random queue missing problem

No news? MK support say it´s a bug but no more information if it will be fixed or when.

Continue using MK to control my users bandwidth is becoming useless, so I need to look for a professional solution. Anybody here hows a good and professional PPPoE Server ?

it means multi core cpu.

In this case I don´t think it´s related to multi-core cpu. I had this problem with single core CPU too.

Re: PPPoE server performance and packet lose problems

We have some packetloss with version 3.7 and Intel Gigabit NIC. I don´t know if with Broadcom is worst but we have this problem with Intel (PCI or PCI-E).
Is it a multi-cpu box or an old fashion single core?

It´s a P4 3.4Ghz dual-core with intel server mobo.

Re: Limit P2P using simple Queues performance and stability.

Should be a simple PCQ queue
But how change the queue type will help on it?

I think the problem is that both PPPoE shape queue and P2P queue has no parent.

Re: PPPoE server performance and packet lose problems

I think we should report to Mk support that we are not happy with this solution, or else they will believe it´s fine.

I cannot accept a new version that works worst than an old version. And loose packets in LAN enviroment make this solution useless.

Re: PPPoE server performance and packet lose problems

Here are my results with version 3.7.

150 pppoe users, 8Mbits - 1000 packets - lost average 3 packets (it less than 1% but packet loss is still there).

I´m not happy with this result, old Mk versions never loose a single packet with much more users and traffic.
