you have to check features what each VM provides and what will be the future of your guest. Then choose one that is more appropriate for your needs and future plans.

You can either use KVM, Qemu or VirtualBox.

ROS works with all of those.

Hello there,

Dose anyone knows if you run MKT OS on a vmware ESXi, are there any TCP connection limits ? I have a client, running MKT OS6, on a vmware ESXi v5, the server only allows 4500 connections or so. If we get more than 4500, the server fails. It has 4 quad core CPU's 20 Gb ram and 1 TB storage.. I dont know if anyone had this problem.
Thank you.

you can attempt to configure your network interface differently on your VMS host. As numbers you are calling are quite low and you would not be the first one to hit them.

Janisk,

Can you tell us if you're working on adding support for Hyper-V? IMO, MT could do some really cool things in terms of switching and routing in the virtual network. Take a look at what Cisco is doing with their Nexus 1000v product, it is pretty amazing. I don't know if MT could ever compete at that level, but it would be a nice option for those of us running smaller data centers.

nothing is done regards Hyper-V.

You can try Vmware as that is the fastest known virtual environment or KVM as that is part of RouterOS

VMware workstation is a good virtual machine software. But if you are looking for alternatives, then you can either use Virtual Box if you have good configuration or you can use the inbuilt Virtual machine in Windows.

But which hypervisor is best? I need to share the NIC with the host as a bridge, running on a Xeon 3460.. Trying with hyper-threading disabled right now on ESXi
CPU features visible, CPU features hidden, different NIC types.

Don't care about the hypervisor's features, only care about the CHR performance.

Trying to prove network issues but CHR is being blamed. I would go bare-metal but with not being able to transfer the license to another install, since I won't have the hard drive, I don't want to go this method (that is the only thing stopping me from doing a bare-metal install).

So, which combination works best?

If an existing installation is being blamed as a problem then does it matter which you choose, the objective is to prove or disprove the installation on the existing machine? ESXi I have found works CHR really well once you get over creating the relevant files.

I'm using Quemu on my Ubuntu machine to virtualize Mikrotiks for GNS3.
I shall read the manual/color]
