Comment and feature requests around the API

Hey all, I have been doing a lot of work with the API, in particular building a "configuration state manager". The intention is to write in a generic way code that will take a config (an export file) and compare it to a running config, show the differences and make whatever changes are required to b...

Re: ingress-filtering in bridge and in bridge port

My uderstanding is, that several bridge settings actually apply to the "interface" personality ... those include pvid, ingress-filtering and frame-types ... Ah yes I hadn't considered pvid. So given these settings are on both (bridge and bridge-port), which one takes precedence? I am surprised that...

ingress-filtering in bridge and in bridge port

Hi all, I am hoping someone can enlighten me to how the same settings for ingress-filtering on both the bridge and on the individual port interact? You can set ingress-filtering and admit-frames at both the bridge and at the port level. Which one takes priority when deciding on what packets to filte...

DHCPv6 creating unasked for simple queues

We have recently upgraded to 6.45.1 and have noticed that the DHCPv6 server seems to be creating simple queue entries that we didn't ask for. e.g.:- 0 D name="dhcp-ds<4C:5E:0C:D1:AE:0C>" target=2404:e80:a::/48 parent=none packet-marks="" priority=8/8 queue=default-small/default-small limit-at=0/0 ma...

Re: Error handling?

I think I have to the solution to this issue. If you put the code that may have a syntax error into :parse, then you can execute that inside a do { } on-error={} and it will catch syntax errors too. So to use your example... :global mycode [:parse "/system ntp client set mode=unicast" ] :do { $mycod...

Re: Bridge forwarding using both MAC and VLAN together

What you expect should work normally, but at both the "router-used-as-a-switch" and "far end router", you haven't specified any protocol-mode for the bridges you use, which causes them to run RSTP by default. I'm afraid that RSTP blocks one of the two connections between the "far end router" and yo...

Re: Bridge forwarding using both MAC and VLAN together

Other than that, I am a bit lost in your configuration exports. The first one comes from "your router" and the last one from the "far end router", correct? In such case, having the same IP address (x.x.x. 2 /24) on both is not a good idea. My apologies, I pasted the config from the wrong router - I...

Bridge forwarding using both MAC and VLAN together

I have been experimenting with the new vlan bridge filtering in the hope that it may solve an issue I have been having with peering. I am talking to a remote host that presents to me with the same MAC over two physical interfaces. Each physical interface has a separate vlan tag on it and of course d...

Re: Efficient packet marking - queue tree

I believe Simple Queue is better in this situation, below might provide some guidance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ro3B1kQUokE&t=411s Thanks that gives me some good background (i.e. confirms) what I am seeing. So the suggested solution is to use simple queues with a parent. However there seems t...

Efficient packet marking - queue tree

I am running a large number of vlans (>1000) and need to prioritise traffic between the vlans. So for example I have a total capacity of 2Gb for the interface (that holds all the vlans) and need to make sure that each vlan gets the right priority within that 2Gb. However I can't seem to do this with...

PPPoE Client Bugs

Been messing with PPPoE client on RouterOS and I have noticed a couple of issues, that probably should be corrected to increase the robustness of the implementation. 1) The PADT that use to terminate the session at the Discovery level seems to get sent to the 00:00:00:00:00:00 ether address, it shou...

Re: Queue bucket-size option explained

I have just realised what this parameter actually is. It is really "bucket-time" - the amount of time it will take to fill the bucket up from empty when there is no packet flow. The number of seconds of token flow (which is set by the max-limit/limit-at etc) that can be stored in there (after which ...

Re: Queue bucket-size option explained

So given the above, if we want to have a setup with almost no burstiness (we have a downstream network that polices the traffic at 10ms intervals!), really I need the bucket size to be only big enough for one packet (1500 bytes). So at 100Mb would be a bucket size of 0.00012 (0.00012*10000000/8 = 15...
