Re: Very high sector writes

I have netinstalled 6.45.1 and the issue persists. But the writes are not done once a week, as in the "refresh" update, they are done every couple of minutes. After 1 hour there is already more than 300 writes. So the netinstall procedure hasn't fixed it. I noticed that even though leases are set to...

Re: Very high sector writes

I don't see how could it get hacked. There are no open ports nor forwarded ports on the wan interface. None of the admin tools, like webfig or ssh are open to the exterior. The only one using the router is me.

Re: Very high sector writes

Will try netinstall and report. Just curious, compromised how? Do you mean hacked? Or something else?

Re: Very high sector writes

That setting is no longer active, the router has been reset to factory defaults, but the writes keep on raising no matter what.

Re: Very high sector writes

Router has been running for 36 hours and there are more than 20000 sector writes. I don't know what else to do. Should I contact support? I don't have a support contract or anything like that.

Re: Very high sector writes

Well I changed the setting to store the leases every 24 hours, but the writes continue to raise. The router has been running for 12 hours and there are more than 4000 writes already. I don't know what else to check or do, in less than 2 months there have been more than 1 million writes. I think that...

Re: Very high sector writes

I will try changing the setting. I thought that store-leases-disk=never was the way to go to avoid leases being written to disk, but I will try other setting. In any case, there are only 5 leases and the lease time is 1 day, so the refresh frequency is really low, once every 12 hours for just 5 leas...

Re: Very high sector writes

Indeed it seems it is not user-manager, or at least not only that. The router has been running for less than an hour and there are already 650 writes logged.

Re: Very high sector write

Thanks @mkx for your reply. I have disabled user-manager package, as I don't need it. I rebooted the router and will check again after a couple of hours to see if the writes have stopped. Do you happen to see anything else that could be a cause for writes? User manager has been always enabled, but n...

Very high sector writes

Hi All: I'm running RouterOS 6.43.16 (long-term) on RB751g-2HnD and I'm seeing more than 7000 sector writes per day, I've opened webfig and checked the System->Resources menu and I can see how it writes 32 sectors every 6 minutes, approximately. Not only that, it almost reached 400000 sector writes ...

Routerboard RB751G-2HnD sector writes rising

Sector writes on my routerboard have raised to more than 3 millions (3501045). I was running RouterOS 6.29 which is supposed to fix sector writes raise, but sector writes keep rising anyway. I downgraded to 6.27, since the bug was introduced with 6.28 according to fix list, but sector writes still k...

Script runs from terminal but doesn't run from scheduler

I have a RB751G-2HnD running RouterOS 5.25 I have found that the following script will run OK when launched from the console, but not from webfig, winvox or scheduler: :global IPSECOLD :local IPSECNEW [:resolve xyz.dyndns.org] :if ($IPSECNEW != $IPSECOLD) do={ :set IPSECOLD $IPSECNEW /ip ipsec polic...
