Re: v6.38rc [release candidate] is released

*) profile - added ability to monitor cpu usage per core;
IMHO it would be better to change current drop down list with standard filter, at least it would make much more sense on CCRs, where I would be able to tell how specific task (like firewall) is spread among the cores.

Re: V7 ALPHA/BETA Testers needed?

Mikrotik has NEVER said 7.0 would be soon. They have always stated "when it's ready" I'm too lazy to look for it but I'm pretty sure I saw in some presentation that alpha should be released by the end of 2015/early 2016, of course that was unofficial information but combined with "the v7 will have ...

Re: v6.38rc [release candidate] is released

*) winbox - fixed icons in disabled state (introduced in v6.38rc44); I see no change on my system (linux/wine), when I tried removing current winbox config/cache I noticed there were no files for rc45 and it seems winbox (re)creates "6.38rc44-763096560" instead. On another note, I've been testing l...

Re: v6.37.2 [current] is released!

Nissarin - This is not related with this RouterOS version. When interface is used as standalone interface it is not the same thing as interface which is, for example, in bridge. That's not the issue here - the issue is that in/out-bridge-port rules doesn't work anymore: 1. If you add the rule from ...

Re: Suggestion: more friendly and intuitive Firewall in Winbox

First, any change you've suggested would break a lot of existing scripts, make various examples obsolete and I even don't want to imagine what would happen when you would try to upgrade (or worse - downgrade) machine running complex fw system. Now then, combining various fields into input/output sou...

Re: v6.36rc [release candidate] is released, wireless-fp package is discontinued!

TLDR: Perhaps it would be more consistent to rename the list to zones and move it under firewall prefix, i.e. /ip firewall zones. Long story: The name 'list' is not that bad but the command 'interface list' suggest something different than it should really do in this case (like list of all interface...

Queue parent - global vs specific interface

Is there any difference (like CPU/core utilization) when using specific interface instead of catch-all global ? Looking at the flow diagrams alone there shouldn't be any but since global is essentially artificial interface one can expect some kind of overhead, unfortunately after some digging on the...

Re: v6.36rc [release candidate] is released, wireless-fp package is discontinued!

Are you speaking for Mikrotik as an authority of what will, and what won't lock up? Or should I just roll the dice? :? If I ran a company like Mikrotik, I wouldn't want people to think that my product might include "deadly bugs". :shock: MT might not be rock solid and probably never will, not only ...

Re: BGP Community Priority

If you want to balance traffic somewhat your only choice is to play with prepends, both on your side and your isp side (via communities). Local preference is an "absolute" value, i.e. if there are multiple ways to access remote network, path with highest preference will always be selected, I think t...

Re: v6.28 will be released this week!

Yes I did try that as well (Both on and off configurations). In theory that should only affect the media flow though, and not registrations correct? My issue is with initial registrations not even happening. I had similar issue when I replaced my Linux based gateways with CCR and it helped. It's ma...

Re: What BGP setups need to be optimized

Anyway to Bind more cores to the routing processes? Currently see only core dealing with this... would like to see more CPU for this. If I remember correctly from the presentation about v7, the way routing (at least some parts of it) is implemented in Linux makes it impossible to take advantage of ...

Re: Transition to routed (MPLS based) network - sugestions ?

I'm not really concerned about clients switching between APs, even now they can't do it in our network. What I want to avoid is having some stale entries polluting the routing table, I can think of a few ways to solve it using scripting but it's 'itchy'. Right now the DHCP server have the ability to...

Re: Transition to routed (MPLS based) network - sugestions ?

I've personally done the proxy-arp thing and it is very good at causing a single supernet to appear in multiple locations as if it were a flat network, but in reality being a routed backbone. I routinely added the same "default GW" address and broadcast address to a loopback interface on all partic...

Transition to routed (MPLS based) network - sugestions ?

After digging through couple of topics on forum and elsewhere my current plan looks as follow: - network nodes running MPLS/OS...
