Re: Possible memory leak configuration in beta version

we have now done some testing on x86
the memory leakes out fast when multi-cpu=on (740meg in 70 minutes)
leak is much slower when multicpu=off (740meg in 3 days)

can the queue be the cause of this memory leak
the memory counts down from 750 meg and when it gets to 12 meg the x86 machine reboots and must be switched on and off at the power to start again

Low LAN Throughput

Hi there I have an RB600A with 1 x R5H and 1 x R52Hn cards. The R5H connection runs fine, and give me up to 60mbps between the two PCs. The R5Hn however does not. When I do an bandwidth test between the two RB's I get up to 100mbps, but when trying to transfer data between the PC's it limits it to a...

Re: 802.11n

I see that many of you complain on 802.11n latency and bandwidth. When you say that latency is not better in 802.11n then 802.11a, you are very very wrong. Our experience is different. 802.11n link can handle more than dual nstreme at 802.11a with better latency: 1-3ms max. In order to make ease fo...
