[Feature Request] IPv6 Fasttrack

Sun Nov 11, 2018 12:25 pm

I was led to believe that the Hex S (RB760IGS) achieves full gigabit throughput. This is not the case with IPv6. Due to the lack of IPv6 fasttrack support, IPv6 throughput maxes out at roughly 500 Mbit/s. That alone is bad enough, but on a DS-Lite connection, IPv4 is tunneled via IPv6, so even IPv4 throughput is limited by the lack of IPv6 fasttrack support. To test that this is indeed the cause of the low throughput, I disabled all IPv6 firewall rules. This allows the router to use fastpath acceleration even in absence of fasttrack support, and indeed then routing IPv6 at full gigabit speed is possible. But what good is that without any firewall capability?

Please add IPv6 fasttrack support, urgently.

+1 obviously in critical demand in the modern world. everything we deploy nowadays is ipv6 with some ipv4 workaround/nat solution.

It's 2019. Time to support IPv6 acceleration.

200 Mbit/s via IPv6-over-PPPoE on hAP ac..

I will support the notion that it's time to bring acceleration to IPv6. Please.

I was not aware that any Mikrotik Products supported DS-Lite, please explain how you support this.

It is my understanding that fastpath is currently only available for IPv4.

They don't support DS-Lite. But DS-Lite is just native IPv6 with an IPIPv6 tunnel to a CGNAT gateway for IPv4. Mikrotik routers can do the tunneling, but lack the automatic configuration and the necessary DHCPv6 features to script the setup. If you know the domain name of the CGNAT gateway (the "AFTR"), you can set up the tunnel manually. See RFC 6333 for details. Be warned though, the throughput will be limited due to the lack of IPv6 fast tracking support. The router can use fast path acceleration only if there are no IPv6 firewall rules.

According to MikroTik's own documentation there is currently no IPv6 fastpath support.
