I am using X710-DA4 with v7.1beta1 on CHR. It is working but with SFP+ DAC the link does not come up unless I replug the cable.

Performance is good, I see about 9.8 Gb/s.

I tried to passthrough VF but it is not detected at all. I think there is no iavf driver.

So the X710-DA4 only works with v7 ROS? Because I just bought and test it today with v6.81 and doesnt work at all. I try to test it with Microsoft OS and the card is readable. But not in Mikrotik ROS x85 v6.81.

How is the beta so far? Is it safe enough for production level of BGP?

Absolutely not. Even when ROS v7 will be officially released, you should wait before deploying in production environment. The track record shows that there are always some teething problems after release of new minor version, let alone after major version (such as jump from v6 to v7).

I agree - I found this beta to be the first one that was stable enough for me to use for my home network. I would not consider it for any sort of production BGP.
