Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

A couple of us have already given you the solution.... You need a bridge - with Mikrotik software, most of the layer 2 stuff is now done through the bridge interface. The "H" you see when "/int bridge port print" shows that as much layer2 as possible is handed off to the switch chip, but the bridge ...

Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

Since you are using vlans, you probably don't need to do this. Just do the firewalling at the point that traffic crosses vlans - unless you need security between lan devices in the same vlan. Traffic crosses VLANs in this device :) I'm sure it does, but do you need to filter traffic in the same vla...

Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

I think some of your problem is that you are passing your bridge traffic through the IP firewall. This will definitely slow everything down. Since you are using vlans, you probably don't need to do this. Just do the firewalling at the point that traffic crosses vlans - unless you need security betwe...

Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

I made a Ookla speedtest (http://www.speedtest.net/) and it gives 250mbit/s if I bypass CRS125. Behind switch I can roughly reach 50mbit/s
Can you post your config?

Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

I tested a crs125 in our network (we use them for management switches in pops) and got 170Mbps up and down using the google speed test. It's using NAT and has 10 ip firewall filter rules and fast track is not enabled. It maxed out the cpu (>95%) for the test, so I guess that's about the limit. As a ...

Re: CRS125 poor throughput & low cpu load [SOLVED]

Well - the CRS is a switch... Use a router for routing! Not sure that's particularly helpful! The data sheet says 689.8 Mbps when routing with 1500 byte packets and 25 ip filter rules, so there's a reasonable expectation of above 50M. Presume the OP has checked that it's definitely the CRS causing ...

Re: New router OS

Any chance of backporting the improved BGP performance? Some of the requested features haven't been made, so there is no difference if you are waiting for them in v6, v7 or whatever version. Let's just say you are waiting for a specific feature, not a version. The v7 doesn't automagically come with ...

Re: What BGP setups need to be optimized

We have around 15 CCR-1036's with full internet BGP tables. We tend to limit the number of peers per router because the convergence time is so high. There must be something different in the way that MT loads the routes into the FiB, because we don't see this on x86 hardware running Quagga, or on Cis...

Re: CCR & MetaRouter

Did you get a quote from Tilera?
One off's start at $13k USD for a 36 core pci card and went up to $19k USD for the 72 core.
You also need a one off dev license of $12k USD.

For you to build your own system as a one off, you're better sticking with off the shelf x86 I think.

CCR-1072 release date?

Any news on the CCR-1072?
I think it was planned for November 2014, and we're just about done with November.

Interface monitor-traffic column width

Is is possible to specify the column width for the interface monitor-traffic command? As the routers get bigger and more powerful, the numbers are too wide for the output and get truncated. /interface monitor-traffic aggregate once rx-packets-per-second: 1 836 999 rx-drops-per-second: 0 rx-errors-pe...

Re: Mikrotik CCR Internal Power Connector Type

I just found an old one in a parts bin here.
It's got P2422 jmt written on it.
I think that it's this:

I reckon your Farnell part will fit.

Re: Mikrotik CCR Internal Power Connector Type

I've seen these in, for example, Mini-ITX PSUs.

I don't know where to buy separately, but the image in the picture is exactly what you want.

Re: SNMP Problem When Different Ingress and Egress

I've noticed the same issue. I'm hoping someone from Mikrotik will take a look at this thread and comment... The behaviour is exactly the same as with Net-SNMP on generic Linux. It was introduced I think in version 5.5, and I therefore assume that RouterOS uses a port of that version. At the time, i...
