Re: MUM Europe 2018 - New hardware incoming

Sorry to burst your bubble but anybody with so many 10g ports in their datacenter to justify going 40/100g is going to deploy CSS/CRS to use them as edge/access devices or remote site aggregation at best, where QSFP is a nice extra but not mission critical. If you are so bandwidth strapped to cry f...

Re: MUM Europe 2018 - New hardware incoming

Most of these switches are useless for many scenarios, especially for data centres. What's the use of a switch with SFP + ports, if it does not have a uplink? Mikrotik must seriously work on the research and needs of clients. All new switches should have a minimum of 2-4 QSFP ports, otherwise they ...

Re: MUM Europe 2018 - New hardware incoming

Hmm the tiny 4xSFP+ is a good option if you want to futureproof your tv cabinet lol, less cumbersome than a 326 if you want a good switchchip with full hw accelleration. If the price is right i might snag a crs 309 instead of a 317(i need three sfp+ at best in my homelab) like i was planning to.

Info before HAP AC purchase

Hello! I'd like to replace my ISP router with mikrotik equipment. I plan to replace the route part with a CHR instance, my core switch with a CSS326(or a CRS326 if i can get some decent offers while i wait to buy the HAP) and to deploy two HAP AC(non lite) at the edges of my apartment(100sqm) since ...

Re: Virtio-SCSI

The wiki states that virtio is not supported for boot devices, you can use it for extra disks, i just used it to add a second disk to mine and there are no issues at all.

Re: Dude v6 - Database disk sizing [SOLVED]

Few megabytes. No more than 20MB in case of standard aggregation settings.
Oh ok, I've provisioned 60G to be sure so I won't be hitting the size limit for quite a while. Thank you!

Re: Cloud Hosted Router

Just checked the free version of ESXi, it allows to configure shutdown action (with options "Guest Shutdown", "Power Off" and "Suspend" available) and startup and shutdown delays on a per VM basis. I'm pretty sure any decent virtualization platform should allow to set such options as well. Yeah, th...

Re: Cloud Hosted Router

I have never seen a FS problem and everyone here is "yanking the cord" for 15 years or so.  Good to know then, another thing that having the tools adds is the fact that my standalone hosts autoloads a series of vms and having the agents working cuts dramatically the time before the next autostart v...

Re: Cloud Hosted Router

RouterOS does not need graceful shutdown. OK, except maybe if you added some config and need to turn off immediately.  Is router os running from a read-only filesystem? If it doesn't, there is a real risk about the FS getting corrupted if i "yank the power cord", shutting it down without the agents...

Re: Cloud Hosted Router

Hi there,
I am a potential customer, the potential comes from the lack of open-vm-tools. Being unable to gracefully shutdown/restart the vm without logging on is a no-go for me. Once you add that you have a at least a p1 license sold
