Re: VMWare ESX and Router OS

ESX does support IDE hard disks. It's just not intuitive on how to add them. I'm using ESXi 4. If you specify a 'custom' configuration, after you specify the disk size, you can specify the interface. It defaults to SCSI but you can set it to IDE. The issue I am running into is performance. It destro...

Re: RouterOS Performnce issues

Wow, you're definitely on to something there with the VM. If I do a bandwidth test between my RB750 and my x86 (in a VM), I max out at 50Mbit. The VM has a 2.6Ghx Xeon pegged and the RB750 is running around 33% utilized.

Re: RouterOS Performnce issues

Anyone have any insight on using an RB600a with 802.11n and if it can actually push the packets across at full speed?

Thank you.

Re: RB vs X86

While I don't think there's a way to make a true apples-to-apples comparison, I was able to dig up this chart: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instructions_per_second#Timeline_of_instructions_per_second From there, its a matter of looking of the dhrystone mips rating of a given processor and making a c...

RouterOS Performnce issues

I recently picked up a RB750 to try out the platform and must say that I am impressed. So much so that I have decided to expand my implementation. I do however, have some performance concerns. First, I am trying out RouterOS on x86 hardware as an internal router to pass traffic between vLANs. I have...
