Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

Fair point but you haven't said what it's aimed for either, without that all people see is a 13 port gbit router. If it can't handle it then why not simply have ports 11-13 as gbit and ports 1-10 in 2 100mbit switch groups. That way bus issues are not there and it wouldn't give them impression of a...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

We have not advertised the RB1100 as better than all X86 systems, yes, if you need extra power, currently your option is to get a X86 system. Many of our MFM partners offer preassembled systems like that. We are working on more powerful devices, but there is nothing to announce at the moment. No on...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

I corrected your statement, I have not said anything about the CPU yet. Currently we don't have any better CPUs, so like I said, you can buy a Xeon with 16 cores if you want better performance. I do have a single Xeon E5504 doing shaping with 82575 NICs. The only problem is I have to disable the sh...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

on RB1100, the whole switch group shares single Ethernet interface bandwidth (1Gbps full duplex) this Ethernet interface is built in into CPU, so don't have any PCI bus limitations Hello Normis, I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm talking to the walls here. What part of "the bottleneck is...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

Whats the bus speed between the switch chip and the CPU interface? I remember us ditching the RB800 ethernet daughterboard because the board only had a single 100mbit interface into the RB800's cpu or other switch chips and thus those extra 16(?) ports were all limited to this 100mbit uplink when d...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

I too was looking for a Mikrotik-made ready-to-go solution and did quite some research about it. It seems like the older 1333MHz RB1000 performs better than RB1100, but is more expensive and difficult to get. And when you're more into it, seems like it's not that expensive to build your custom x86 ...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

For comparison, I do over 50 Mbps with 30K active connections in the connection tracker and some firewall rules, but no queues, on a RB493AH with under 40% CPU. It may have something to do with the tagged VLANs. I transport a few tagged VLANs to the switchport where the MT is plugged in. If I disab...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

Maybe bridging ports 5 and 6, on different switch chips, would be even better?
Thank you RK; That might be even better.

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

I solve this using the rb 1100 has a gigaswitch and the queue, conntrack and firewall rules with a X86 server with 2 giganics, the 1100 cpu can´t handle all the traffic.
:D Pretty expensive gigabit switch, huh?

I already tried that even though it was useless to me. I've disabled all queues, I've disabled all firewall rules. Besides the fact that the conntrack is something that I need, I disabled it anyway, it was roughly a 50% throughput gain, but then again, no shaping, no filters, no conntrack? Doesn't ...

Re: RB1100 low bridging/shapping performance

rb1100 does not use PCI bus.
What type of bus is using is irrelevant. What's relevat here is that it can't bridge more than 120Mbps through 2 gigabit ports from the same port group, nor between ports from two different groups.

Hi, Simple Queues and L7 inspection slaughter the CPU. Please do not use them, or at least don't use hundreds or thousands of them.
