Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server(s)

Thu Jan 28, 2016 12:57 am

EDIT July 1st 2019
Some good news :D
The btest server 207.32.194.24 is now also IPv6 :)
IPv4 address: 207.32.194.24
IPv6 address: 2605:4e40:0:1fe::
user: btest
password: btest
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: Feb 26, 2019
Thanks to Martooo , it appears Martooo has spun up a public access btest server.
For details , here is his post: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=145303

EDIT: August 15 2018

At this time, the only known public accessable Mikrotik btest server is 207.32.194.24 (user=btest passoword=btest)

Note; The planetcoop btest server is no longer online. I/we want to say thank you planetcoop for offering to us your btest server. It will be missed.

Note: If anybody else is interested in hosting a btest server (10 meg or 100 meg or 1-Gig peak bandwidth), please post here and let us know.

EDIT: February 28th, 2018

btest server change effective immediately , aka - right now (March 22, 2018)
btest server 207.32.195.2 was moved to 207.32.194.24
Same server , same settings .. Just IP renumbered now to 207.32.194.24

btest user:btest
btest password: btest

FYI: My business is growing. We needed the entire 207.32.195.0/24 Class C netblock for some new networks we are building. Normally , I would of given a prior notice but something came up today and I had to rush a re-number on this btest server.

North Idaho Tom Jones
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: February 28th, 2018
1st - today, I changed the bandwidth allocated to the 207.32.195.2 btest server
Info here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=104266&p=645201#p645201
Max Limit: 105M
Burst Limit: 1250M
Burst Threshold: 50M
Burst Time: 500

The simple queue operates this way:
#1; allow sustained btest of 105-Meg
#2; If the recent bandwidth average has been below 50-Meg for (Burst-Time seconds), then allow up to 1.25-Gig (until this this #2 line no longer is valid).


2nd - Sometime in/around March 2018, the planetcoop btest server 50.235.23.218 will be going away.
planetcoop is moving to a new location and may not have easy access to a 10-Gig Internet connection for his btest server.
I would like give planetcoop a big "thank you" for his participation and donated time & equipment & operating Internet expenses in our Mikrotik community.

More info about planetcoop:: viewtopic.php?p=645482#p645482

3rd - If anybody is interested in placing their own btest server on-line for the Mikrotik community to use , please let me/us know.
It could be a 10-Meg or 100-Meg or 1-Gig or even a 10-Gig btest server (depending on the bandwidth you might wish to allocate for a btest server)

EDIT: January 3rd, 2017

Thanks to planetcoop , we now have two public Mikrotik bandwidth btest servers we can test to out on the Internet.

Both btest servers are running Mikrotik CHR.
Both are on 10-gig Internet connections. This however does not imply you are able to test the full 10-gig.
Here is the information:

planetcoop btest server:
Host: btest.planetcoop.com
ipv4: 50.235.23.218
ipv6: 2001:559:8062::20
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: https://btest.planetcoop.com:10443/graphs/iface/ether1/

TomjNorthIdaho btest server:
ipv4: 207.32.195.2
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: http://207.32.195.2/graphs/iface/ether1/

You are welcome and encouraged to post your btest throughput results - and please let us know where you are located:
Also; A Reputation +1 is always welcome.


Please - limit your btests to short periods of time. We are also using some of our bandwidth for our customers also.

Thank you

North Idaho Tom Jones


======================================================================================================
EDIT: Feb 24 2016 --- Now supports up to 3.5 Gig speedtest - read all the posts
EDIT: October 7th 2016 --- This btest server now supports 3.6 Gig for both send and receive tests - please read through all the posts


I have setup a public accessible Bandwidth test server. It is available for temporary testing through the Internet.

To use this server to test your Mikrotik devices through the Internet you agree not to abuse it.

Here are the details for my server:
- x86 ROS hosted on VMware ESXi server (with 10-gig connection to the Internet)
- Burstable to 250 Meg up/down
- Sustained traffic is limited to 100 Meg up/down (after about 30 to 60 seconds)
- Your maximum connection time for testing is not to exceed 10 minutes.
- IP Address: 207.32.195.2
- btest user authentication needed: User: btest Password: btest
- You may NOT winbox to this machine - you may bandwidth test to it.

Please post your positive and/or negative results or thoughts.

If this server is abused, I will discontinue it.
I hope this helps Mikrotik network admins everywhere.

Here's a suggestion on how you can keep your server not being (too) abused:

Require that routers make a "/tool fetch" request to a web server, and have the server return temporary bandwidth test username and password (ideally username on first line, and password on second line; for easy parsing). The username/password would only be valid for 10 minutes or so, after which, it would refuse to generate credentials for that IP for another... let's say hour or so.

To actually add the user automatically, you can use the API.
PEAR2_Net_RouterOS(1.0.0b6) - My API client in PHP

I considered doing just that - however I took the quick-easy-simple way to build it. If it creates any problems, then I will do just what you said.

FYI - (With bandwidth limits turned off) - I have tested to the internal loopback IP address of 127.0.0.1 and hit 17 gig. And external to the live IP address at up to 8 gig.

Also - if this is not abused, then I will consider increasing the temporary burstable peak testing speed to a full gig up/down.

Great idea if You have a good infrastructure and inet line! Thank You!
I was always wondering why MikroTik didn't do that with few bunch of load balanced servers.
I will test it in the evening CET.

Thank you - you are welcome to bang away test at it.

If anybody wants to perform any very-high bandwidth testing to it, you are welcome to drop me a private message and we can set up a time where it can be increased up to 10 gig if necessary.

I would guess that the lost-packets are due to my simple queue
Max limit: 100 M
Burst limit: 250 M
Burst threshold: 100 M
Burst time: 120

when the test exceeds the burst limit it will start dropping packets for a max of 250 meg
when the test exceeds the burst time it will start dropping packets for a max of 100 meg

I just tried your server...

on upload, I get my full upload limit of my isp, on either tcp, or udp.
on receive, I only get around 50 mbit down on TCP, my connection is 100 Mbit, but that could be due to location, but on UDP download, it bursts up to about 7 mbit for about 1 seconf, then to nothing, I cant actually see any traffic passing, if it is, its very few kbits, but still shows 0bps on the graph. the actual interface traffic is a few, less then 100 kbits/sec. Not sure what happened to the UDP......

this happens every time I have tried the test.

Testing from Canada

hmm oddly enough, I do a send and receive I get my 7 mbit upload and 130 down. I should only have 110 down, but hey, that's better. So seems to be only on Receive only test. and doesn't affect the Both, or upload....odd..

If you have more upload speed during testing than download speed during testing, I would guess this would be created by your ISP being over-subscribed. Where there is much more ISP download traffic to customers than upload traffic. Thus the possible reason why you upload speed may be faster.

Or the problem could also be where your ISP gets their Internet feed from - they could also be over subscribed.


You may want to try bandwidth speed tests at busy times and at least busy times and see if there is a difference in test results. A difference in test results may point to somebody being oversubscribed.

This is one of the reasons I put my Mikrotik bandwidth tester on-line - so that Mikrotik network admins can test and determine such issues.

umm, yes, I understand, but when I do the test as " receive only" as UDP it jumps to about 4 - 7 mbit down, then to pretty much 0, ie NO traffic.

If I run the receive only test as TCP I get about 50-60 mbit, tcp data, which is expected for my 100 mbit connection.

if I run the UDP "both" send receive I get the full amounts of my connection, about 7 up, and 110 down.

so, ONLY the UDP receive only test gets no download speed. I don't mean, 1 mbit, or 2, I mean Zero. well, a short burst to 4-7 mbit when it first starts for 1 second.

ahh never mind. I have my last rule as a drop all others rule on my firewall, when I disable that, the download test with UDP works normally. as to why, im to lazy to figure out. everything else works, except this bandwidth test. odd.

Another possible reason the test results may be off is the clock-speed of the remote Mikrotik device performing the test.
This is why I am running my server on a 3+ GHz Intel CPU. When I run the test from an old RB 500, I get much much slower results. Those old RB jump up to 100 percent load quickly.

On my server, testing to itself (IP Address 127.0.0.1) it will jump up to 18 gig throughput testing and almost hit 45 percent CPU load. (and this is a virtual x86 ROS running under VMware ESXi with many many other active servers doing other things also).

With 100 tcp conn. count up to 140/87 mbps, with default 20 Conn 60/60 on 200/100 line.
But beware there is a Atlantic (Croatia) and 5km wireless link inbetween line and test equipment. Very good!!!

TCP is often much more difficult to hit full speed because of the protocol which requires return ACK packets. This is where distance between the test devices has a major effect - due to the speed of light (round-trip propagation time through the network).

UDP is fire and forget. Thus there is no ACK return packet required when sending UDP fire-and-forget packets.

So on long distance - I would expect UDP to almost always show faster results. And with the way the TCP protocol works, I would expect it to be slower as you increase layer 2 and layer 3 hops on TCP traffic..

Anybody up for a greater than 1-gig btest through the Internet ?

Sat Jan 30, 2016 3:16 am

Anybody up for a greater than 1-gig btest through the Internet ?

I've got a 10-gig physical network. I would like to test with somebody else who has 10-gig physical connection to the Internet using the Mikrotik bandwidth test program. Something like an O-dark-30 after-hours test limited to 2 gig only for a minute or so.

On my side, I want to verify my 10 gig connection is actually running faster than 1 gig.

Somebody up for some testing ?

This is perfect! Thanks so much for providing this. I was just looking into how I could accomplish some of these tests and I couldn't be happier to find it. Definitely enough to saturate the Comcast links I'm testing in Atlanta :).


Thanks again!

You are welcome

I can see from my logs that it gets some use.

It looks like there has not been any abuse. So, soon in the near future (when I have the time to test & verify), I may increase it to 1.2 gig. I have the spare bandwidth here to work with.

My informal results so far have been the following:

Comcast Business class in Atlanta's West Side, probably lowest speed tier: 30Mbps down and 7Mbps up.
My Comcast residential in Marietta, GA: 29Mbps and 6Mbps up.
Charter residential in Roswell, GA: 65Mbps down and 4.2Mbps up.

Thanks again!

Very cool. Testing Seattle(?) to Virginia:
[me@myrouter] > tool bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 ... direction=receive remote-tx-speed=200M duration=30 
                status: done testing
              duration: 31s
            rx-current: 199.9Mbps
  rx-10-second-average: 199.9Mbps
      rx-total-average: 199.9Mbps
          lost-packets: 0
           random-data: no
             direction: receive
               rx-size: 1500
I've often thought about setting this up as well, though we only have a 1Gbe connection and abuse is a concern, though I'd imagine that most people who could abuse it have better things to do.

If you don't mind a suggestion, you may want to add a couple filter rules to track addresses running tests so you can limit them to a finite number of sessions per period of time.

I thought about adding IP tracking. One reason I have not is that I am not that good on the Mikrotik when it comes to firewall rules needed to track and log IPs during a bandwidth test.

However, I do know how to use Cisco access-lists with permits that can log IPs through my core 10-gig Cisco router to get from the Internet to/from my Mikrotik Bandwidth tester.

Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server (now test up to 1.2 gig throughput)

Thu Feb 11, 2016 7:28 pm

Some good news. I kicked up the peak throughput testing to now support up to 1.2 GIG bandwidth testing.

With the original system, I did not see any abusers. Everybody was good.

Please wait at least 1 minute between tests. My simple queue needs this time for the average traffic to drop so that it can again peak back up to 1.2 gig for another test.

Below is a CLI method to perform the test (if you are a command prompt type of person):
bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 user=btest password=btest protocol=udp duration=30 direction=receive
bandwidth-test 207.32.195.2 user=btest password=btest protocol=udp duration=30 direction=transmit
If you use the CLI method shown above; then look at your tx-or-rx "10-second-average:" when the test is completed.

FYI information:
- At this time, my Internet connection should have the ability to support this load at all times
- My Internet connection comes out at Seattle Washington U.S.A. although I am actually located in North Idaho U.S.A.
- If you do not get the speeds you think you should be getting, then wait about 5 minutes. Somebody else could be testing which could effect your testing.
- I am not sure how well bandwidth tests will perform near or above 1-gig (due to the nature of the Internet connected routers and switches and physical transports)
- Please post your positive or negative results or thoughts about this tester.
- Please no abusers. The function of this tester is only intended to good and proper use
- And I wish to say "Thank You" for feedback.

Tom,

This couldn't come at a better time. We're getting ready to turn up a new 1Gbe connection, and it will be very nice to actually be able to test it.

For the firewall, here are 2 simple rules that will limit the number of tests that can be performed
/ip firewall filter
add action=reject chain=input connection-state=new dst-port=2000 protocol=tcp reject-with=tcp-reset \
    src-address-list=btest
add action=add-src-to-address-list address-list=btest address-list-timeout=1d chain=input connection-state=new \
    dst-port=2000 protocol=tcp
First rule will reject any new connection from any address in the "btest" address list. The second rule will generate that list as connections come in. I used 1 day in the example.

Again, as long as folks aren't abusing it, great... but this may help if things become a problem.

Another way to do authentication, would be radius, which could use an SQL back-end, easily managed by a web front end where users could register, be verified, then granted access. I won't pretend to have the patience for building something like this, but I'm sure if you were to ask the community, someone would be more than happy to step up and help you out.

Re: Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu Feb 18, 2016 6:45 pm

I would like others to consider configuring their own public Mikrotik Bandwidth Tester systems also and placing them on-line for other Mikrotik network admins to be able to btest to/from with.

I have had mine on-line for almost two months now and the last week has been opened up to be able to btest up to 1.2 gig (note a continuous btest will drop down to 100 meg). So far, I have not seen any effects on my business ISP network.

If you have the bandwidth to spare, I would like to suggest you consider also making a btest server. From my point of view, I have the bandwidth and I have only heard positive comments and so-far I have not seen any abuse - thank you.

Also - If anybody has a desire to perform any really high-throughput bandwidth testing, you are welcome to drop me a message and we can set up a time where I can crank up my btest server to be able to sustain up to 3-gig (Yes I have that kind of spare bandwidth).

Hi Tom,

Thank you very much for providing this! My results are below.
Are you planning to keep this server running permanently (for the foreseeable future, or until you run out of spare bandwidth)? Or is this a temporary project only?

It would be awesome if it's long-term, but either way, thank you!

novical - are you measuring what you are supposed to be getting ?



If there are no abusers, I plan on keeping it on-line and available (aka long-term).

I plan on keeping it available as long as I have the extra un-used bandwidth to support btest connections.
At this time, do not see having to reduce the speed to less than 1 gig.

novical - are you measuring what you are supposed to be getting ?
Yes, getting very close to what I'm supposed to. 25 up / 25 down, but there is lots of other stuff running so I estimated it would be closer to 15-20Mbps.


If there are no abusers, I plan on keeping it on-line and available (aka long-term).

I plan on keeping it available as long as I have the extra un-used bandwidth to support btest connections.
At this time, do not see having to reduce the speed to less than 1 gig.

North Idaho Tom Jones
That would be great. I would like to set up a test server too at some point, but it may be a while before I can do that so in the meantime it's really nice having this. Are you aware of any other servers or yours is the only one as far as you know?

Thank you

Great - I must admit that I did now know how well 1.2 gig would traverse through the Internet.

I am thinking about kicking it up to 2.4 gig then later 3.6 gig - might do the first later this week.

It would be nice if the btest server had a setting for how long a test can run to/from a client. If I had this kind of control of the server, then I would remove all limits and let it run up to 10-gig for 10 seconds or longer.

FASTER Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu Feb 25, 2016 3:00 am

Now you may test your Internet download speeds up to 3.5 Gig !!!
btest-squeue.jpg
Good news for you

I opened up my best server to be much faster !!!
It now supports 3.5 Gig bandwidth tests to you (your download speed)
It now supports 2.2 Gig bandwidth tests from you (your upload speed)

Hi Tom

Just tried it !

2G down and 1.3G up :)

Not bad since there is the Atlantic ocean between us :)

And for the 1.3G up...I'm testing from a CCR 1036-8G-2S+, and at that speed one core hits 100% and that's it :)

LOL - that actually made a needle like spike in my Cacti bandwidth graphs

If you don't mind, I have some questions for you:

- What do you get when you btest to your local loopback IP address of 127.0.0.1 ?
On my ESXi VMware hosted 32-bit x86 ROS, I get around 17 gig.

- What do you get when you btest to the IP address of your WAN on your Mikrotik?
I get 9 gig.

I have never played with a CCR device, so I really have no idea just how well they perform under heavy load and testing. I sure would like to replace my 32-bit x86 ROS btest server with a 64-bit ROS btest server. Anybody willing to donate one (or a physical miktorik that can handle a public btest server up to 10-gig ???

In both cases I get around 850Mb/s...and a sigle cpu core at 100%.
And Bandwidth Test uses only a single CPU core...so the tilera cpu isn't the best option on which to run the btest server...

FYI - Although I am running my ROS in a VMware ESXi environment, I am running two Intel Xeon 10-core E5-2690 3-GHz CPUs (20-meg CPU cache) (Hyper-Threading disabled), of which I have allocated 2 CPUs to the virtual ROS.

I was not aware that btest only used a single core. I might drop it down to a single CPU and see if it makes any difference.

Yeah...me neither, because frankly i don't use it at all, but since I saw your post I thought maybe i should try it :)

But then I read http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:To ... width_Test and there it was :

Warning: Bandwidth Test uses only single CPU core and will reach its limits when core will be 100% loaded.

FYI - the Mikrotik x86 ROS must of crashed a couple of days ago - I just noticed it was not talking so I re-started it.
207.32.195.2
btest user: btest
btest password: btest

This time I put a network monitor on it to alert me if it happens to go down.

I suspect I may of crashed it when I was performing some bandwidths from a 64-bit ROS and had all rate-limiting disabled.

LOL - well somebody had a 6 hour long btest running.

After a few minutes, my simple queue drops from Gigs down to 250 meg, which then continued running for 6 hours.

For an hours long sustained btest, it looks pretty good with no drop-outs from what I can see.

Good thing that I have several gigs of extra un-used available bandwidth :)

Re: 3.5 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu May 05, 2016 6:53 pm

Hi, great work done.
We used to use a Mikrotik router from a friend's network to do 'real' internet traffic test from our network towards his server. But his business is sold....

Anyway, I can use your's now to test again.

We have a 300/300Mb simmetric line delivered to us over a dual hop microwave link from our provider. (24Ghz) After some ill experiances with previous provider we need to test that capacity once a month at least to see we really get what we pay for.... so here your service comes in place.

We can use www.speedtest.net but results are all over the place and therefore very unreliable in my opinion. Either these servers at times, or part of my providers network or part of the rest of the (inter)network is saturated at times since sometime I can push my link to indeed 300 up and almost 300 down, but at time same PC connect to my CCR (=gateway) only gets 20Mb down......

Anyway I found your test server, very helpfull!

BUT;
I also have a multi session download bandwidth test program from Peplink (manufacturer for multy WAN load balancers) that works very nice (download only!) in downloading some standard files (MS-Windows upgrade for instance).
With this little program on my PC I can open several downloads (4 program sessions) for several files and it will fill the 300Mb pipe up to 285-290Mbps considered we already have some 90-140Mb client traffic running.
Done this many times and almost always can 'fil' by download pipe.

But just now did the MT-bandwidth test from same PC and can only 'fill' the same pipe to just over 200Mbps.
Actually, I could even run the bandwidth test from my CCR1016-12G and still can not fill the pipe. Max I'll get is 210-220Mbps max.
Starting Peplink in parrallel and it puts another 60Mbps on top of it to fill the pipe to 260-270 this time....


We are now developing the 'feeling' something is wrong with our CCR settings.
We also never can get the clients assigned (simple queues by PPPoE-server) internet speeds as we sell. But internal MT bandwidth test always completely fill the client's assigned queues.

Anybody has any advice where to look for?

One thing I have noticed is that sometimes my virtual ROS x86 bandwidth speedtest server running under VMware ESXi will sometimes crash - interesting.

I can't ping it or talk to it using IP. However the VMware ESXi console to the ROS is still active and the ROS does respond to console CLI commands.

I am kinda wondering if the problem is the IP stack dying when under extreme heavy I/O loads.

It's a good thing this not also functioning at a production router under the same loads.

Anyways - a reboot appears to get thing up and running again for another week or so.

FYI - From my Cacti bandwidth graphs, it looks like my ROS bandwidth test server gets a bandwidth test around every 1 to 2 hours ever day.

I tried your server from Spain now several times and best I ever got download was some 100Mbps.
This is done directly from a CCR as our gateway router.
We are on a 300/300 symmetric line and with other programs can easy push over 250Mbps.

Doing same Mikrotik speedtest with its Window bandwidth tester from my PC gives me less than 1Mb, where a download progam with multiple connection almost inmediately downloads at 120-130 mbps and sometimes up to 280Mbps into my PC. (Still traffic from the rest of my WISP environment using the same 300/300Mbps.)

How come these huge differences?

I am guessing at some answers...
- Your up-stream ISP - or their up-stream connection may be over subscribed.
- There could be some bottle-necks somewhere between your location and my location (my connection is physically a 10-gig connection from North Idaho USA into Seattle USA. My account is actually a 2-gig account that is burstable.
- Try running the btest several times at different times. There is a chance that somebody else may of also been performing a btest to my server at the same time you ran a btest to my server - which may result in a slower result.
- Are you testing using TCP or UDP. UDP is normally much faster over many hops.

What is the best speedtest you get when using a PC computer testing to speedtest.net ? What do you get when testing to Seattle USA ?

Can you post traceroute from your location to 207.32.195.2
If you give me your IP address, I will post a traceroute from me to you.

Both up as download on the main pipe reached 185mbps (roughly 100-140mbps client running)

I tried to do some http://www.speedtest's to some servers in Seatle, WA. but speeds where in the range of 2-6Mbps at best. Not very useful.....

So, maybe we have a provider that is having saturation issues or we are not having a 100% contented to us pipe.

But how to proof? We've had something similar in the past and than the provider comes up with some ftp servers we can download from with ftp and off course, always we reach top speed according contract....

And maybe indeed the route to his servers is OK. How to find where other bottlenecks are to be found.
If I read the several post from other users from all over the world with good results, I'm wondering why I cannot have my contracted speeds?
Any help/suggestions from this forum is appreciated.

Here is a Mikrotik traceroute from my btest server to your ISP router:
traceroute-212-231-164-1.png
I suspect your ISP may have two potential issues:
- their NAT router might be running slow
- some of the hops appear to be bottlenecked ( he.net )

With 186ms RTT, I'm getting 1912.4 Mbps/1933.6 Mbps Tx/Rx, not more. looks like there's somewhere 2G link in-between Belarus and USA :D

FYI - The free public btest server available to all Mikrotik admins is averaging just over 1.5 TB (tera-bytes) of best data a month. Wow - It looks like it gets used/tested against up to 50 times a day. And at least one person ran a 6-hour 200-meg sustained test during the last month.

I would like to ask - if anybody has the extra bandwidth capacity - would you be interested in a 24 hour sustained 1.5 gig up & down test ? I am interested in an opportunity to stress test my un-used spare capacity under heavy load.

Edit: or a bunch of testers running a 24 hour btest against me at what ever they can spare ... I would then set my simple queue to limit at 1.5 gig up & down flat.

OK - I just setup a 2'nd speedtest server.
This one is at: http://speedtest.rezmail.net

It is hosted on the same VMware ESXi server as my Mikrotik btest server.

Hope this helps to compare a btest and a windows speedtest through your mikrotiks & firewalls.

If ya don't mind - you are welcome to post your btest speeds and your speedtest speeds.

Heads up - I will be shutting down both speedtest servers in about 30-minutes from now.
They should be turned on in about 15 hours or so.

Our 10-gig fiber is being worked on - My network is going to fall back to a microwave link. To conserve bandwidth, I will temporarily shut down both speedtest servers - then bring them back on-line when the new fiber is connected.

I thought I would post this - because the btest server has many people testing it at all times of the day.
So, when it goes down, it is not you...

could you make watchdog that genarates supout before it crashes and send to support@mikrotik.com
Kristaps,
I am able to duplicate and repeat the lockup with my ROS x86 PUBLIC btest server (hosted on a MvWare ESXi server).
I will shortly be sending an email to support@mikrotik.com
I will describe in the email how to duplicate the lockup.
What happens when the ROS locks up is the following:
 - No IP network access
 - Console & keyboard to ROS CLI is still active
 - Can not ping anything (including WAN IP address and also the 127.0.0.1 loopback IP address)

Heads up
Starting this morning (Monday 6/20/2016 PST),
I am now running the Mikrotik CHR 64-Bit version or ROS.
The original x86 ROS 32-bit btest server is turned off, while we test the 64-bit CHR ROS.
The new ROS is the following:
     - Running under VMware ESXi (the same server that was hosting the 32-bit  ROS btest server)
     - VMXNET3 Ethernet (paravirtulized Ethernet driver in the Mikrotik ROS) for ether1 (old 32-bit was E1000E)
     - 2 CPUs with 8-Gig ram (Old 32-bit ROS was 1 CPU with 2-Gig ram)
     - Latest ROS version (6.35.4)

If you experience anything other than normal speeds - please let me know.
ALSO - for the Mikrotik admins with a 1-gig or faster connection, please test and let me know if you are able to send & receive at the speeds you were getting in the past.
Mikrotik Bandwidth test server:     207.32.195.2
bandwidth test username:     btest
bandwidth test password:     btest

FYI:  Below is the simple queue I was using on the older x86 32-bit ROS best server.  I kept the same setting for the new CHR btest server.
#

/queue simple
add burst-limit=2200M/3500M burst-threshold=250M/250M burst-time=6m40s/10m max-limit=250M/250M name=3.5-Gig-send-and-2.2-Gig-receive target=""

I turned on the ROS 32-bit ROS btest server
I guess I am going to need to look at what kind of bandwidth the 60 day trial license can support for throughput.
In-house I was able to send to it (from another ROS 32-bit) at near 10 gig.  However - I did not measure how fast the ccr can send.  Is the send speed limited (when running the built-in 60 eval license -or- do I need to do something (license) to kick up the vmxnet3 Ethernet send speed ?

Almost cool.
This morning I had somebody doing a btest to my public Mikrotik ROS 32-Bit virtual hosted server at an average of 3-Gig for about one hour - and I did not even notice a difference on my network.

I just updated the public access btest server (207.32.195.2)

It is now version 6.36 (X86 ROS running as a virtual client - which is hosted on my VMware ESXi server_

I welcome the Mikrotik admins to bang away at it to help me determine if it is stable under greater than 1-gig (up to 3-gig) throughput btest loads.
Specifically I want to see if the random lockup condition has now gone/resolved under heavy loads where the simple-queue kicks in.

Hmm, for some reason I could not connect to 207.32.195.2 using BW test in MT with TCP (user btest/btest) from Serbia.
Is it just some temp issue, or is this project done with testing ?

Great job anyway !

Sorry about the can't connect.
The problem is the x86 ROS keeps locking up.
From what I think I am seeing, it appears that if somebody continues a btest bandwidth test - and my simple queue kicks in to limit them to 250 meg - and the test continues, then sometimes the TCP/IP stack on my ROS x86 takes a dump and no longer talks.  The console is still responsive but nothing IP talks.  When my ROS does this, it can not even ping the loopback address 127.0.0.1 - it acts like all IP traffic is just turned off.  From the console, I still have CLI commands to the ROS.  To get my btest ROS server back on-line, I have to reboot the MIkrotik ROS.

also, Watchdog should help in that case
I do use Watchdog
I also have my own custom watchdog.
I do not know whey they are not working when the x86 ROS IP stack dies ???  Something I will need to study when I have the free time.
A note - Even if the watchdog was working - A watchdog is not a fix for the underlying problem - at best a watchdog would be network effecting reboot.
One issue with the Mikrotik watchdog is --- when the simple queue kicks in and starts dropping packets in a RED (Random Early Detect) condition, the simple queue can and will also drop watchdog packets - which will result in un-needed reboots.
My watchdog (netwatch with a script) should be working but for some reason it is not.  My watchdog (netwatch-script-reboot) script will retry many times then perform a reboot after continued/extended ping failures - where the stock Mikrotik watchdog will reboot upon a single ping failure.
Thus with only the Mikrotik stock watchdog - the ROS is subject to rebooting during a btest - thus the reason I do not use it.

I thought I replied to this this morning - but I must of forgot to hit the post button.
The reason I use X86 ROS for the btest server is because I received a free complimentary license from Mikrotik and I used it to activate the X86 ROS 32-bit btest server.

FYI - I did try the free version of CHR but I hit some snags :
- The CHR free license does not support high-throughput on the EthernetThe free license has a limitation of only a few meg throughput on the Ethernet which prevents somebody from performing a btest in the hundreds or gigs of bandwidth to support a remote admin running a btest at 1-gig or even multi-gig throughput best.

You can activate 2months unlimited trial license for free. After that period you loose only the update ability. If you need to update you can freely regenerate the system Id and activate new trial license again.

Sorry about that - the btest server went down again.
I just rebooted it so it should be up again.

Sometime within a week or so - I may give CHR another trial run.

When the X86 ROS server dies, I have the following conditions then:
 - Console is still responsive
- noting talks IP
- I can not ping 127.0.0.1
- The console CLI appears to look normal - but no IP to anything
- A console CLI reboot does work ( after a reboot - the btest server is on-line and working again )

Re: 3.5 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Fri Jul 29, 2016 3:56 am

Another lockup
- the Mikrotik watchdog to 127.0.0.1 did NOT reboot the X86 ROS router
- A console CLI system-reboot did properly reboot it.  After the reboot, it was back online.

Prior to me doing the CLI reboot, I verified the ROS could not ping anything (itself 207.32.195.2 & gateway 207.32.195.1 & 127.0.0.1 loopback)
The only thing in the IP-arp print list (arp table) was the 207.32.195.2 mikrotik itself.

This bring up a question as to why it did not watchdog auto-reboot -
My question is - does the watchdog use a special call or function via an IP stack to the 127.0.0.1 to make a watchdog reboot command to itself ?

The reason I ask is that I have seen some devices with CLI commands which the command is actually talking to itself on 127.0.0.1 to do some things passed to it from the CLI or programs or other ...

--- Some other background information ---
my VMware ESXi server hosting this X86 ROS has several other router/nat virtual hosted servers on it also (Pf Sense).  The other devices all have 10-gig links (vmxnet3) never have a problem.

It would be good you could make a supout before reboot and just after the reboot and send them to mikrotik. They are sometimes able to find the reason and correct it.

My VM MikroTik server should have 1/1 Gbps but according to this measuring it is not like that... Unless there are too many people testing at the moment.

Here are my test results:

Both directions UDP

Heads up
Potential slower-than-normal bandwidth btest results to my 207.32.195.2 ROS btest server - every last weekend of the month.

The reason for possible slower than normal results:
My company "Red-Spectrum Communications" now has an all-customer wide-open no-bandwidth-limitations every last-weekend of the month.

Every Friday (normally towards the end of the day) prior to the last weekend of the month -and- Saturday -and- Sunday -and- Monday morning, we remove all speed-limits to all of our customers (thousands of customers).  All of our fiber-to-the-home customers become 500 meg up/down accounts -and- all of our Microwave customer have no limits.
We do this for the following reasons:
-1) We have the bandwidth to support this
-2) Customers experience much faster connections than normal.  It helps to encourage our customers to upgrade their paid-for bandwidths they are purchasing from us.
-3) It gives us an opportunity to load-stress-test our network and look for areas in our network which could use improvements

Although we only have a 10-gig connection Internet feed - we have discovered the total average customer bandwidth only jumps up an additional 150 percent during the last weekend of the month.

Anyways - when we do this every last weekend of every month, it has the potential to effect your test results to our  207.32.195.2 btest server.

Re: 3.5 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Fri Jul 29, 2016 7:32 pm

spaxton - questions for you

- Are you testing using a virtual ROS ?
If so ...
- What hardware and operating system & version are you using ?
- What kind on network cards are you using on your virtual ROS ?
- Are you using X86 ROS or the cloud 64-bit version ?
- What do you get when you test to your local loopback address 172.0.0.1 for a btest ?

( me - I use E1000E network card on my virtual ROS.  I get about 17 gig on a btest to 127.0.0.1.  - Also I get about 9.5 gig between two different ROS systems (each hosted on two different physical servers).

Hi friend,

I am using x86 64 bit on a virtual machine on proxmox. The machine is supermicro with intel atom processor while the network card is intel E1000E. I could also choose RTL. Testing to 127.0.0.1 resulted with 1800 Mbps. Just tested it with TCP and it shows about 5 Gbps.

That's how my configuration looks like in few words. :)

Best Regards.

Good news
I now have a 2nd best server
This 2nd btest server is intended for low-speed long-term btest connections
(( This new 2nd btest server is not intended to test bandwidth throughput ))
(( This new 2nd btest server is intended to test long-term connectivity ))

Here are the details:
IP address: 207.32.195.10
User: btest
Passowrd: btest
Local Tx Speed: 25k
Remote Tx Speed: 25k


Duration of your long-term test to this server are not to exceed 7 days

Please set your Tx Speeds to 25k ! If you do not set your Tx Speeds to 25k, then you will create problems for other simultaneous users of this server testing at the same time.

Like any new server - there may be a few kinks to fine-tune and work out.

hi tom, wonderful job for providing this test server.
however I can't connect to your 207.32.195.2, is it down again?

Yup - it was down again.
I did a system - reboot. It should be up again

The last thing I spotted in the logs was: ... 91.39.152.5 via dude
The way I look at it is that no matter what 91.39.152.5 was doing, it should not of caused a crash (if there was anything related between dude and the crash).
Question for admin of 91.39.152.5 - cat you bang away again at my 207.32.195.2 - I would like to test to see if there is something that will repeat the crash

Question for others who use x86 ROS

Am I the only person experiencing x86 ROS problems ?
or
Am I the only person pushing an x86 ROS beyond 1 gig throughput with a 10-gig network interface in a virtual environment ?

On a related note...
I have many times tried x86 ROS in a 10-gig multi-Ethernet environment under sustained loads from 500 meg to 8 gig. I have never been able to trust an x86 ROS because they often just lock-up and stop routing. I know my hardware is good and my hypervisor (ESXi) is good because the same VMware boxes also run dozens of PfSense virtual routers/firewalls at the same loads (up to 8 gig sustained).

Sometimes I wonder are the X86 ROS lockup problems are because ROS does not support or have paravirtual drivers (for things like Ethernet & hdd),
i
This btest server 207.32.195.2 has been driving me nuts - since I started it this year - it has locked up well over 100 times !!!!!!!! I have replaced all hardware and rebuilt everything at least a dozen times.
If I had to give ROS (x86) a score for reliability under load , I am sorry to say it would be low (close to zero).
If I had to give PfSense a score for reliability under load, I would give it a score close to 100.
I uave used both for many years. I really like and totally trust Mikrotik wireless products and Mikrotik hardware. I just can't say the same about their x86 ROS products - not good.

Yes and no

I have tried it. I do not have a CHR license key. The free version has built-in speed limitations. Without looking it up again I think it was something like 1-meg (or somewhere slowwww and un-useable).

So - yes - I could run CHR with the free license, but btest will top out at the whimpy speeds of about 1-meg tops (or what ever the CHR free license sets the maximum throughput at).

A note - Right now - I do have many remote admins performing regular btest tests several times a day at speeds greater than 1-gig. So, that tells me that those testing at speeds greater than 1-gig are probably on 10-gig hardware and probably on 10-gig Internet connections (like me).

You can get unlimited trial chr license for free. It will just block updates after two months.... For testing it is great.

As of 8/23/2016 9:15 AM PST the btest server is now running on CHR
(CHR, 64-bit, VMXNET-3, 4-Gig ram memory, 128 MB hard disk, 2-CPUs)
I am running VMware ESXi version 6.0.0 to host the Mikrotik ROS CHR btest server

License; not-configured (it will eventually time-out for updates)

btests to itself:
When performing a btest to 127.0.0.1 UDP, it hits 17.5 Gbps (without simple-queue enabled)
When performing a btest to 207.32.195.2 UDP, it hits 17.5 Gbps (without simple-queue enabled)

For Mikrotik admin public best testing, I currently have simple queues enabled:
/queue simple
add burst-limit=2200M/3500M burst-threshold=250M/250M burst-time=6m40s/10m max-limit=250M/250M name=3.5-Gig-send--and--2.2-Gig-receive target=""

To test to it, the same info applies:
IP address 207.32.195.2
user: btest
passowrs: btest

Everybody is welcome to bang away at it. I think we would all like to find out how stable it is under gig+ btest loads
Please post your positive or negative results - thank you

TCP verses UDP

UDP is a fire a packet and forget protocol. With UDP you can send many packets. Over long distance links UDP should somewhat retain pretty fast speeds.

TCP is a fire a packet and wait for an ACK from the remote side protocol. With TCP, you have to wait for the remote ACK to be received prior to sending the next packet. As distance and hops and network routers increase, TCP will slow down.

Additional information:
TCP uses RED (Random Early Detect) which helps govern speeds. When there is no ACK received in a short time, the sending unit starts to learn how fast it can send before there are packet drops.
UDP does not use RED. Some protocols using UDP might send many many packets and receive a summary of received packets.

UDP is: fire - fire - fire -fire - fire - fire - fire
TCP is: fire - wait for ACK - fire - wait for ACK - fire - wait for ACK - fire - wait for ACK - fire - wait for ack - fire - wait for ACK - fire - wait for ACK
(Just looking at the two above lines I typed in - I hope you can get an idea why UDP is sometimes a better protocol and why TCP is sometimes a better protocol.

Are you stating something like -- for a few days it is now slower results - or faster results

A few days ago - I changed the 207.32.195.2 btest server
It was a x86 ROS 32-bit server
It is now a CCR ROS 64-bit server

Hello. Previously, it was OK. I have a link 200Mbps / 200Mbps, and my results are only 800 - 900 Kbps if I test download from your server to me. Upload to your server is OK.

OK - I see the problem/issue also.
The new CHR ROS 64-bit server is the problem.
This morning (Friday 8 AM PST), I went back to the x86 ROS 32-bit system.
Now I am seeing great btest speeds again (faster than 7 Gig) btest results.
Please test and verify you are now testing at full speeds.

I am just not sure how I feel about the CHR ROS 64-bit system. Without a full paid-for license, it is not useable for close to 1-meg throughput or greater.

YES - It was down again
I rebooted it this morning.
FYI - I am still currently running the 32-BIT ROS x86 version.
Sometime, I plan to try again to test out the 64-bit version - when I have time.

10-gig fiber network outage & spanning-tree fall back to a low-speed microwave up-link.
So - I had to turn off the 207.32.195.2 btest server to help conserve bandwidth for my customers.
Sorry about that - It should be backup around 8 am California time (my time zone here in North Idaho).

Every morning - first thing, I check my Cacti bandwidth graphs for my entire network to see who is pulling what amount of abnormal bandwidth traffic.
It is sometimes WTF when you discover a huge spike on your Internet traffic by several gig-per-second then realize it was only the 207.32.195.2 btest server - lol

Which brings up a question I have to those who often use it.
My question is, for those with fast Internet accounts (high bandwidth), are your throughput btest results to 207.32.195.2 consistent ?

Yesterday - I upgraded the 207.32.195.2 public access btest server. I tested it after the upgrade - everything looked good.

However ... I forgot to re-enable the simple-queue to limit the bandwidth test so that it can't consume my entire 10-gig internet feed...
Well ... Yesterday - somebody got a lengthy 6 gig+ btest -and- somebody else got a 4 gig+ btest - lol

My bad - lol.
I will try to not forget about the simple queue - because I do not want to saturate my 10-gig Internet feed or somebody else with a 10-gig feed testing to me and relying on my simple queue to not kill their feed also.

Related info - I have seen it hit up to 9.8 gig on a btest to somebody remote out on the Internet testing to me a few months ago...
And - if any of you ever want to perform a quick btest higher than 4-gig, let me know and I can setup something temporary just for you.

You are most welcome.
That is exactly the reason I have this 207.32.195.2 btest server running. So that we can all test and verify our contracted Internet speeds - and take possible actions to correct an environment where we/you do not get what we are paying for.

FYI - This is a Cacti bandwidth graph of the last 24-hours of my 207.32.195.2 btest server.
The needle like spikes indicate a 5-minute average of the bandwidth (up/down).
Thus a 3 Gig btest executed for only a few seconds may only show a very small spike in the graphs.
The far right of the graph indicates a 180 meg btest. This could of been a 180 meg btest for 5 minutes - or a 360 meg btest for 2.5 minutes or 900 meg btest for 1 minute or a 1.8 gig btest for 30 seconds or a 2.7 gig btest for 20 seconds.

As you can see, the total traffic for 24 hours is actually pretty low (which averages out to a 24-hour total load of about 45 meg sustained over 24-hours), but the real-time-traffic-spikes can actually be very high - especially when I have the simple-queue disabled.

Tom, I heard this server is quite popular among RouterOS admins :)

If you do not mind, I'd like to make this topic sticky on the forum so it stay on top
Russian-speaking forum: https://forum.mikrotik.by/. Welcome!

For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.

Tom, I heard this server is quite popular among RouterOS admins :)

If you do not mind, I'd like to make this topic sticky on the forum so it stay on top

Hey - you are more than welcome
Everybody is welcome to btest to it.
*** thank goodness for simple-queues :) --- otherwise my network could saturate at 10 gig lol

Also - I am open to the idea of other test servers doing other mikrotik related things (tunnel test - vpn test - or what ever could help out the Mikrotik community )

Good news everybody :)

I just increased the simple-queue settings for the 207.32.195.2 btest server.

The btest server now supports 3.6 Gig testing speeds.

The new speed settings are supported for both send & receive tests (up & down settings are now identical)

I also increased the time duration for how long a 3.6 Gig test can run before it throttles down to a lower speed.

I also increased the sustainable extended btest server to now support a continuous 1/2 Gig (500 Meg)

NOTE: I have a few points I would like to clearly state:
- Do not abuse this btest server
- Do not use this btest server to create/generate unwanted & undesired saturation issues with your Internet provider
- If and when there are two or more tests occurring at the same time (two or more different remote Internet locations at the same time), the simple-queue will rate-limit the combined tests of everybody. Example - two admins can not test at 3.6 gig at the same time.
- If you run an extended test - you are also preventing others from bursting to 3.6 Gig or also running an extended btest
- You are welcome and encouraged to post your tested speeds and where you are located
- This btest server is solely intended to support the good purposes and good intentions of all Mikrotik admins

To use this btest server, perform a Mikrotik ROS bandwidth test to 207.32.195.2 (test user name is: btest -and- test password is: btest)

Hi Tom,

Seems like an excellent tool for the Miktotik community, thx for providing

I am unable to connect though and not sure I am doing something wrong or if it is down at the moment, I am connecting to 207.32.195.2 with usr/pwd btest?

Kind regards from South Africa

Thx Tom!

FYI testing from Atlanta, GA on AT&T Gigapower.
btest from mikrotik hardware (CPU throttled)
DSL reports and speedtest.net for comparison (fastpath enabled only way to get high speeds without CPU bottleneck)
Can't connect via UDP, only TCP. Wouldn't be surprised if AT&T is filtering UDP out at their interconnects so their backbone doesn't get flooded with infected devices.
VPN tunnel test anyone? :)
Tested with windows Mikrotik bandwidth test util (v0.1) and was only getting 10-20Mbps, not sure why.

Hello Tom,

Thanks you to offer this tool for free.

Here are the results of my test:

I would ask you: How to configure a user to just have permission on the banwidth-test tool of the server?

Interesting ...
Are you behind a firewall ?
Is your test device on a live IP address ?

devices/programs/computers/servers talking on the Internet need both TCP and UDP

Can't hurt asking ...

Anybody want to donate a Mikrotik with a 10-gig port to replace my x86 32-bit 207.32.195.2 btest server ?

I would like to find a hardware solution Mikrotik something that can btest up to near 10-gig (or at least 4-gig).

I would like to see the stability & throughput difference .

anybody - Mikrotik how about you ????

No firewall, live public IP from AT&T Uverse, the Gigapower division.

It's consumer 1Gbit, so I'm sure they have protection mechanisms for large quantities of UDP traffic aiming across the Atlantic ;)

If I had a closer server with btest listening I'd test that...nothing setup atm.

What do you get when you do the same traceroute again but this time using UDP instead of icmp ?

....you can traceroute with UDP. My "learned something new" for the day! Makes sense if you think about it though. :)

Image

Re-testing apparently it's only the receive part I'm not getting...though quite slow, guessing a 1Mbps limit.

Image

Considering you're trying to "receive" a UDP, there must be a tcp control channel for the btest that is telling the btest server to send udp at you, so somewhere it must be dropping it. I'll send you a PM with my IP and btest server if you'd like to test.

Based on your last traceroute - I just noticed you are coming from an RFC-1918 NAT network (10.x.x.x).
This implies you have a firewall/NAT device between your Mikrotik and the Internet.
The firewall/NAT device may need a port-forward so that Mikrotik UDP packets from the Internet are forwarded to your internal Mikrotik.
This may be starting to sound more complex to configure than the time you may want to invest just to be able to perform a btest to-and-from my 207.32.195.2 btest server.

What might be easier would be to move and reconfigure your Mikrotik to be the live IP address NAT device for your RFC-1918 internal 10.x.x.x network. Then you should be able to perform UDP btests in both directions - and it may give you more control over what your network is doing.

Just wanted to say thanks for your server. I've been able to test both my connections. One weird Mikrotik thing found: when uploading (10 megabit) the test server process makes a routerbord 450G's CPU spike to 100%. When just doing a speedtest on speedtest.net, it does not go over 10%

Because btest is very cpu hungry while generating traffic.

No, the 10. is the private side of the Mikrotik. traceroute must default to the default internal private bridge unless specified otherwise.

Running the btest directly from the Mikrotik using winbox.

Instead of trying BOTH, try send by itself then try receive by itself.
Also you might want to try and verify you can ping 207.32.195.2 (the btest server)

Thanks for the service Tom. It is a great alternative to speedtest. I hope you can keep it running despite its increasing notoriety.

Note to other testers: Windows v0.1 client is not up to the level of the ROS client. It should be avoided for any realistic figures.

Greetings from Ireland !!

Firstly: Many thanks for providing this very useful btest facility.

We also had problems with the CHR's running on VMware ESXi 6.0 using Hotlava 10G Cards.

We experienced the VMware host would "Pink Screen of Death" complaining about the Network card approx once every 6 weeks approx.

We gave up and moved to CHR1072. It is not as good for BGP convergence on a CCR1072, however it doesn't crash - which is way more important :D

BGP Convergence of 1080219 routes to the Internet is around 20 minutes after startup. Single core limitation.

Did this test from one of our CCR1072's - she was RX'ing at 1G of live traffic at the time when I ran this test.

We have a 10G connection to the Internet on the CCR1072

Interesting that I can pull 2Gbps (on the RX) from your test server but can only manage 1.2Gbps (TX) to your test server.

Hey - thanks for the feedback.

I am very interested in possibly changing the 207.32.195.2 btest server from a 32-bit ROS system running under VMware ESXi 6.something to a physical mikrotik hardware solution with 10-gig network cards.
I know that btest only uses 1 CPU when there are multi-cores available. Thus a btest server comes down to CPU clock speed to function well as a btest server.
So - I would like to ask you a favor please
On any of your Mikrotik platforms with 10-gig Ethernet, what do you get when you do a UDP btest to 127.0.0.1 ???
If I can find something that cat run at or near 10-gig, I want to try to switch the 207.32.195.2 btest server over to it - then see if it can handle the load while still delivering same speed results.

again - thanks for your post

Have you been able to test to it in the past ?
Can you ping it ?
Is your Mikrotik behind a firewall ?

I had the same problem, then enabled logging on the FW rule chain=input action=drop tcp-flags="" in-interface=ether1 log=no log-prefix="" and saw tons of drops.

Thus, I added this just above that rule:
add action=accept chain=input comment="IP address of public bandwidth tester" protocol=udp src-address=207.32.195.2

It locked up at California USA time 2016/11/08 17:49:23 ((( 5:49 PM ))

It is back up now

I am glad I don't use this as a primary high-bandwidth router.

Yup - my Mikrotik ROS x86 32-bit btest server was locked up again. I reset it and it should be running again.

I have a question to everybody - does anybody have a Mikrotik anything that is actually standing up to gig+ sustained routed bandwidth loads (like what my btest server goes through) ?

Subject: Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server
Here are the details for my server:
- x86 ROS hosted on VMware ESXi server (with 10-gig connection to the Internet)
- Burstable to 250 Meg up/down
- Sustained traffic is limited to 100 Meg up/down (after about 30 to 60 seconds)
- Your maximum connection time for testing is not to exceed 10 minutes.
- IP Address: 207.32.195.2

Hi and Thanks for the server, but i cant understand why Btest to your server shows average TCP Tx Rx 15.0 Mbps/49.5 Mbps and speedtest.net - Tx Rx 661 Mbps/641 Mbps ?
The result are so much different...

Here are the details for my server:
- x86 ROS hosted on VMware ESXi server (with 10-gig connection to the Internet)
- Burstable to 250 Meg up/down
- Sustained traffic is limited to 100 Meg up/down (after about 30 to 60 seconds)
- Your maximum connection time for testing is not to exceed 10 minutes.
- IP Address: 207.32.195.2
- btest user authentication needed: User: btest Password: btest
- You may NOT winbox to this machine - you may bandwidth test to it.

My guess would be the speedtest.net server you are testing to might be closer than my btest server.
Try a speedtest.net speedtest using Seattle and see if that looks near the same as my btest server.
Also - are you btest ing using UDP or TCP? UDP should be faster.

Oh, I see, it's in USA, then maybe that is the reason. I'm using TCP because speedtest also uses TCP, just wanted to compare the results.
Today results are - Btest up 31.8 Mbps/ down 66.4 Mbps and speedtest to Seattle up 697 Mbps/ down 141 Mbps.
Really crazy =)

Hi,

I'm trying to ping the server from Kenya and it's timing out. Could you kindly confirm if it's running?

C:\Users\TOSH>ping 207.32.195.2

Pinging 207.32.195.2 with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

On the mikrotik it returns the error "can't connect".

x86 ROS under load has a MTBF (meat time before failure) of less than 1 day. This is across all versions of x86 ROS for the last year.

If you can not ping or btest to this server, it is 99.999 percent because it locked up again. This btest server sometimes has to be reset up to 3 times a day.

I can only hope that CHR or anything else is better at faster than gig btest speeds.

Tom, what locks up ? Is it the x86 ROS virtual machine or is the whole physical server crashing under the load ? Can you post DETAILED information about your HW config especially about NW cards their models etc, versions of BIOS, ILO/DRAC card firmware if you have HP/Dell hardware (or equivalent of other vendors') ? If you have white box ("home made" computer), please post motherboard name, BIOS version.

Ideally in both cases, screenshots of BIOS settings would be great. Especially PCI Latency Timer, if you have one.

I'm running virtualized x86 ROSes with 100.0% uptime for years and yes, I have big bandwidths.

Ideally in both cases, screenshots of BIOS settings would be great. Especially PCI Latency Timer, if you have one.

I'm running virtualized x86 ROSes with 100.0% uptime for years and yes, I have big bandwidths.
I am running the following configuration:
- Physical server: I have tried Dell but now I run on a SuperMicro (SAS 12 tb hdd and 127 gig ram and intel 10-gig nics and two Xeon CPUs 10-core each with a crap-load of CPU cache.)
- Boot operating system on physical server: VMware ESXi 6.0.0 (I have also run ESXi version 5.x
- btest server is an x86 ROS 32-bit server (have tried many different fresh installs from scratch).
- Virtual host (ROS) configuration: Memory 2 gig - CPUs (Tried 1,2,3 and 4) currently 1 - HDD thin 8 Gig - single Network card E1000E

I have rebuilt and replaces and reconfigured everything to do with the btest server dozens of times.

I currently have 20 other additional virtual host servers/routers also running on my VMware ESXi machine. None of the other virtual routers (PfSense) or other virtual servers (DNS, sendmail, apache, radius, syslog, cacti etc ...) ever lock up. The only thing that locks up is ROS - never anything else.

When ROS locks up, it appears to be a complete loss of the TCP/IP stack. When it is locked up, the console is still alive and there is still an Ethernet link - but anything to do with IP anything is dead. When locked up, ROS can not even ping it's local loopback address of 127.0.0.1

If I had to take a guess at what the problem is, I would start with a guess that the ROS lack of paravirtual network drivers/support is the biggest potential problem. In my opinion, any x86 operating system without full set of paravirtual (tools, HDD, network, KVM) is pretty much a trusted brick if you are building a house - and only a brick.

It is very frustrating !!! I pretty much give x86 ROS a rating (0 to 10) of a solid -8 (negative 8), and I suggest in a virtual routing environment to instead use PfSense for stability to achieve a never crash virtual environment.

Don't get me wrong and think I am down/against Mikrotik - I totally love ROS and Mikrotik has the best bang for the buck when it comes to wireless products. I know - I have more than 1,000 Mikrotik wireless devices. But when it comes to central core greater than 1-gig throughput processing, this I don't feel Mikrotik is a solution. In my opinion, Mikrotik uses slow cheap wimpy weak CPUs and are unable to reliably compete in the 500 meg to over 10-gig market. I am under the option that Mikrotik has nothing that can reliably handle the sustained often greater than 1-gig btest loads my btest server gets every day. However - for small office and residential use (less than 300 meg), mikrotik has some good products to consider.

One thing I will add,

It appears that when somebody is running a btest at high speeds (800 meg up to 10-gig), is when the ROS TCP/IP stack dies.

and note - I have some PfSense virtual routers on the same VmWare server often holding that sustained amount of traffic (near 8-gig sustained) for sometimes several hours.

chechito - right now you are new best friend :)

I am trying to bring up a Mikrotik SFP GPON in one of my Mikrotiks.
My head-end to terminate my customer GPON devices is an Adtran TA-5000

I have some questions I would like to ask you.
Is your GPON network using a Mikrotik SFP GPON in a Mikrotik ?
Or is your GPON non-Mikrotik and you simply have a Mikrotik connected ?

FYI: I just upgraded the Mikrotik ROS 32-bit public btest 207.32.195.2 server to version 6.37.3

When I did this - I know I bumped somebody off who was doing a btest at the time - sorry about that

FYI: December 7th 2016
I just replaced the Mikrotik ROS 32-bit public btest 207.32.195.2 server.
It is now a CHR 64-bit system.
It is hosted on the same VMware ESXi server which hosted the older 32-bit x86 ROS server.

So far it appears to have the same throughput capabilities. A local btest to the loopback 127.0.0.1 comes out between 18 to 19 gig.

There is still a simple-queue which limits peak testing to 3.6 gig up or down (and also limits sustained testing down to about 500 meg).

You are welcome to hammer away on it.
I would like to find out and verify if CHR is more stable/reliable under the same peak loads when compared to the original 32-bit ROS btest server.

Just tested, 3.6G down (to me)/1875M up with UDP

Well... Wow :) I'm from Belarus, it's 8500km from Idaho =) RTT is 185 ms

With TCP it's only 1550M down/540M up

By the way, "Lost Packets: 0" after 5 seconds at 3.6G :D

Hey - sounds like you have a greater than 3.6 gig internet feed
If you ever want to do a brief no bandwidth test - just let me know
It would be interesting to see what it can go up to ...

Interesting, since upgrading from 32-bit x86 ROS to CHR on December 7th 2016, the btest server has not locked-up/died.
Normally I would of performed up to 15 resets/reboots by now.
I can only guess that the paravirtulized 10-gig network card drivers "vmxnet3" are working correctly.

Hope ya don't mind if I ask ...

Would somebody happen to be running a CHR or 32-bit ROS on a Amazon Web Services (AWS) account ?

This is not a problem. I just happened to look at who was connected to the 207.32.195.2 btest server and spotted a connection from AWS.

My question for you, what kind of throughput and processing ability are you able to get with AWS ?

Thank you for providing this server!

Although I wonder why ROS does not correctly track their own BTEST UDP/Receive connections. I have same issue with UDP Receving like some other in this thread. I allow ESTABLISHED&RELATED in input and forward chain. But I have to disable my REJECT chains for UDP for the BTEST packets not to drop. Of course I could allow my btest IPs but in my opinion this should be covered by the connection tracking.

Yea - it was down
in fact my entire network was down
huge spanning tree issue and native vlan issues across hundreds of network devices.

It should be up and running normally now.

Because I am still having some network problems (non-related to Mikrotik anything), I have turned off the 207.32.195.2 public btest server.
It will remain turned off until mid next week.

Re: 3.6 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Thu Dec 22, 2016 9:19 pm

new feature wish list for Mikrotik ROS and CHR

I would like to see a new feature option in the bandwidth test setting (for server and clinet), where there is a new setting for maximum amount of time a btest can be performed.

Example:
- Where somebody connected up to my 207.32.195.2 btest server (from their client ROS/CHR device) and no matter what, the test will terminate after a set number of HH:MM:SS has elapsed.

This would be great for both client and server in btest.

One of the potential issues I often see with my 207.32.195.2 btest server is that somebody starts a btest to me and lets it run all night long. This can force the simple-queue to kick in after a few minutes and then slow down everything to what ever I have my simple-queue set for. When this happens, a second remote person wanting to also run a btest to my server may not be able to connect or get slower-than-normal results - or possibly not able to run a btest at all.

I just turned back on the public 207.32.195.2 btest server

Please - no 10+ minute continuous extended bandwidth tests.
It's OK to use - but please don't do lengthy tests. Recently I've had some tests that have lasted for several hours or more.

I hope everybody had a good holiday - and will have a good New Years.

I still think it looks good though. I have run a few tests with a dslreports.com admin and have had semi mixed results. Not Mikrotik related but just in general with high speed links. on my end, windows 10 is for sure the weak link. Some live Linux examples do better but anything above a few gigabit seem less reliable. I am using a CCR1036 with the 2 port sfp+.

FYI -
Try turning off the firewalls on your Windows 10 machine and killing all in-necessary programs (anti-virus ...)
And try disabling hyper-threading on your Windows 10 machine
Sometimes - this will kick up the testing speeds on your Win 10 machine

Roger that. I am into tuning process queues on the intel nic. I have tested a variety of settings in the ccr and the hp switch. So far rss on the nic and buffer size seem to have the most impact on a single host. I have a number of servers and to the best of my testing tengb is great in aggregate. Although I dare to get the best desktop test yet. :)

Can't thank you enough for this. It has proven to be a most reliable tool whether we use it for debug or just rate checking.

Re: 3.6 GIG - Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server

Fri Dec 30, 2016 6:20 pm

Thought I would post a brief summary of the 207.32.195.2 btest server total data passed.
On average, since original activation in January 2016:

- The btest traffic averages out to the equivalent amount of data transferred as a sustained 40 meg load (yearly total average).
- It has had hundreds of btest testing faster than 1-gig (up and down)
- On average, somebody is testing to it about 20 percent of the time.
- At peak times, I have seen it busy all day with different testers
- CHR appears to work well as a btest server.
- I do not suggest an x86 ROS btest server - it tends to die under heavy btest loads.
- Because my Internet account is pretty fast, I have never felt any slowdown in my network while anybody is running a faster than gig btest.
- Surprisingly, I do not think the btest server has been used in a negative way by anybody to create problems & network congestion intended to make problems to other ISPs or Internet networks.

--- Also, thank you for posting your btest results and where you are in the world. I think this information helps everybody.

I plan to keep it running in 2018

EDIT - Kinda funny, I remember when I first proposed a day of public btest servers... Somebody commented "The day the Internet died." - lol

Hope you can keep it running in 2017 so far.
I am glad you gave the chance to chr as I suggested even you were not believe in it originally.
Happy new year to you and all over the world!

And please, do not copy one reply over dozen of threads. It was not nice from you...

Your point is noted

My poor excuse is - I was trying to put-to-rest several un-answered threads with the same related topic.

FYI - It would be nice if there were some additional static forum topics (instead of General) for key places to look/read/post on topics such as (GPON, ROS wish-lists, VPNs, 802.1q/Vlans, VRF, Walled-Garden/Captive-Portal/Rate-Limiting, how-other-ISPs-WISPs-Do-It, managing-large-quantities-of-Mikrotiks) which only contain these specific topics - instead of having a General where anything else often end up over and over again.
Just my two cents ...

You could answer in one thread and link all others to it. Normally people would stay in there if they would like to reply so you could effectively join all the open topics to one which continues further. But never mind - just a sidenote.

Tom and crew,
I have setup a test CHR too. lets see what happens with results on this 10gbps uncapped CHR. I have limited the CHR to 50 concurrent sessions.

Host: btest.planetcoop.com
ipv4: 50.235.23.218
ipv6: 2001:559:8062::20
user and pass: btest

Hey - you are not hijacking anything ...
It's great that you are also offering a btest server also. (+1)

I think it benefits all Mikrotik admins , including you and myself.
You posts/messages are much welcome ...

Question - what are you using to collect the SNMP information on your CHR and making the web page public ?

Myself - I use Cacti on everything.

FYI - the "5 Minute Average" is almost not a real measurement. Let's say you have almost zero traffic for 4 minutes 40 seconds, then somebody hits the btest server at gig + speeds - know what I mean ...

using 'read' group for 'btest' user is probably not a good idea. anybody can login to the router and see its configuration, even sensitive information

The good news is this is a dedicated chr for btest. The other side of it is to share info. Is there a way to restrict some of the more sensitive config parts while still allowing some read? In the mean time i have restricted the box btest user to a limited test group.

I have ironed out the permissions to "test" and "winbox". It looks like permissions have not been working most of the day but i was just able to reset them and complete several tests. Have fun testing and thank you for recommending the permissions review.

Hope ya don't mind if I ask ...

Would somebody happen to be running a CHR or 32-bit ROS on a Amazon Web Services (AWS) account ?

This is not a problem. I just happened to look at who was connected to the 207.32.195.2 btest server and spotted a connection from AWS.

My question for you, what kind of throughput and processing ability are you able to get with AWS ?

North Idaho Tom Jones
Hello,

I am running CHR 3.37.3 on a t2.medium instance on AWS Singapore 1b.

Download I am getting ~140Mbps
Upload I am getting 1Mbps

Is anyone else getting slow upload speeds from AWS Singapore?

When I run a cli bandwidth from a centos 7 box behind CHR I am only getting 1Mbps download/upload.

Verify the license as a demo license is limited to 1mb/s and i cant remember what i had seen before, but i think it was a TX limit or a RX limit, not both. I have also run the CHR prior to production release like an RC and had odd btest numbers.

So, not sure who pulled this off, but a 9.9Gbps out bound test for several minutes? I realize the whole test was not that fast but happen to capture some data. I have also save a copy of the larger Observium graph for the time. I then though to capture the CPU load on the CCR 1036 that was performing the NAT from public to private IPv4 space in LAN. Notice in the year of 10Gbps internet I have not seen that kind of CPU load and sustained bandwidth usage.

Thank you! Discovered my go-to speed-test servers were both out of service, just as I needed to use them to test and accept a speed upgrade cutover. Found yours in the nick of time. I need a good external speed-test server for about three minutes a half dozen times a year. Really, really hope you are able to keep offering this service without suffering abuse problems.

ROS still not scale well over multi-core and many-core processors. (as does Linux they built ROS around)
orginal Tilera "Zero Overhead Linux" tailored by them for platform are built Enteriely differently with lot of stuff "in userspace", which Completely interfere with "minimal footprint/bloating" ROS approach and "ductape netfilter to kernel" -esque minimalism :)
to achieve similar scalability without moving to similar framework MT may adopt LWKT from DragonflyBSD and DFBSD kernel in future.
combined with Erlang-written code it allow achieve Impressive scalabilty in many-core, and in Distributed systems.

Questions re the Mikrotik CCR1036-8g-2S and btest throughput

Q1: What kind of UDP bandwidth btest speed to you get when you test to 127.0.0.1 (your local loopback address) ?

Q2: Can the CCR1036-8g-2S be over clocked ? (Winbox -> System -> Routerboard -> Settings -> CPU Frequency)

If so, I have found the following results on all of my Mikrotik devices:
- #1; Overclocking to the second to fastest speed always works
- #2; Overclocking to the fastest speed -almost- always works (sometimes it is not stable and then I have to back down to the second to fastest speed available)
- #3; Overclocking always improves throughput. (to verify this - best to 127.0.0.1 at the default CPU speed - then btest again to 127.0.0.1 with the CPU overclocked).
- #4; Overclocking almost never increases Ethernet switched ports, but always increases Ethernet software bridged ports (and increases routing throughput).
- #5; I have about 100 Mikrotik APs (5 GHz running NV2) and throughput on all of them has increased some when the APs and/or/also Clients are overclocked.
- #6; I have a very busy, heavy traffic WDS link between two Mikrotik 922UAGS-5HPacD (AC only & HT chain 0-and-1 & NV2 & channel width 20/40/80) distance about 13 km & average link connect speed greater than 468 meg) , when both ends are overclocked to the maximum, it always runs much faster.
- - - If you test this , please post any btest throughput results. I am interested if others are also seeing a difference.

I did ok on a busy server and 4 core CHR @ 16.8Gbps. From what i have seen the btest application is single core per session test. its worth mention that my topology is a ccr1036 with 2sfp+ on the edge running IPv4 nat and IPv6 L3. The CHR is behind that with a nat'ed IPv4 and Public IPv6 address.
You can see the individual CPU cores on the CCR:

Re: Public-Mikrotik-Bandwidth-Test-Server(s)

Thu Feb 09, 2017 9:03 pm

The VMware ESXi box I run my CHR on is a SuperMicro has two 10-core Xeon processors with HyperThreading enabled ( 40 logical processors ).
My VMware Summery reports:
20 CPUs x 2.999 Ghz
Intel Xeon CPU E5-2690 V2 @ 3.00 GHz
Logical Processors: 40

My CHR has only one CPU and 2 Gig RAM and one VMXNET-3 network card allocated to it via my VmWare ESXi hyper-visor.

In my opinion - It's not only CPU clock speed that counts , it's also the amount of CPU cache built into the processor. CPU cache memory is way way way faster than external RAM on the motherboard. I am pretty confident that most of my active CHR stuff is probably running mostly in CPU cache most of the time.

Great service!.

Tested a 1gbit Bidi link using your BTest server.

984mbit RX/TX with IPv6 traffic :).

Close to maximum of the gig link for the event it's gonna host in a few weeks..

Please use these public btest servers for brief periods of time.
When one person performs an extended 4-hour-long 400 meg btest, you are preventing everybody else from btesting at the same time because of Simple QOS rate-limiting settings.

I just upgraded my pubic btest server from 6.38.1 to 6.38.3
((( This is a virtual CHR hosted on a VMware ESXi physical server )))

My public btest server info:
TomjNorthIdaho btest server:
ipv4: 207.32.195.2
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: http://207.32.195.2/graphs/iface/ether1/


Also - a second public btest server hosted by: planetcoop
planetcoop btest server:
Host: btest.planetcoop.com
ipv4: 50.235.23.218
ipv6: 2001:559:8062::20
user and pass: btest
traffic graph of this btest server: https://btest.planetcoop.com:10443/graphs/iface/ether1/


You are welcome and encouraged to post your btest throughput results - and please let us know where you are located:
Also; A Reputation +1 is always welcome.


Please - limit your btests to short periods of time. We are also using some of our bandwidth for our customers also.

Thank you

VM RouterOS 6.38.1 on a Singtel Fibre Optic line in Singapore.
I'm support to get 300mbps up and down.

This is pretty close.

Although in another deployment where I've got 2m down 16m up, my users complain of 0.69mbps.
Any idea? Similar vm deployment.

Using 207.32.195.2

TCP and UDP are different types of Internet communications protocols.

UDP is a "Fire and Forget" protocol. The sending device will send a packet or packets and not wait for the intended remote receiver device to acknowledge that anything was received. Kinda like shooting a machine gun - it just sends.

TCP is a "Fire and wait for from the intended remote receiver device to return an acknowledgement (ACK) that a packet was received". After the ACK is received back by the original sending device, then the next TCP packet is sent - and the wait for answer routine begins again. Kinda like shooting a single bullet from a rifle and waiting for somebody to tell you that you hit the target before you shoot again.

UDP can be great for something like a movie stream where if something gets missed , then you just continue on sending the rest of the movie. Thus there is no real guarantee that what you sent was verified that it was received.

TCP can be great for something like pulling up a web page. The web server gets acknowledgement (ACKs) back from the workstation that the web page was properly received. Thus you get fewer communication mistakes.

Let's assume the following (below) are some data packets you want to send - which protocol would you want to use ?
- Packet 1 "Hello Robert , please "
- Packet 2 "don't "
- Packet 3 "call me on the phone"
If using UDP and "Packet 2" is dropped/lost, then the entire message could be understood as something totally different"
If using TCP, the entire communications session can be much slower because there is a wait time for everything.

Now in your scenario where "I cant seem to get more than 300-800Kbps on TCP Download" , the answer could be that you are many hops away (somewhere on the other side of the world), and waiting time for a round-trip answer takes an extended period of time. With UDP, there could be multiple packets going through the Internet that the sender sent and has not been received yet - because those multiple packets are still traveling through the Internet.

There are also some other possible causes of slow TCP traffic such as QOS, priority, network saturation, firewall behavior, symmetric or asymmetric paths through the Internet and others.

I hope I partially answered your question.
((( lol - if you absolutely need faster TCP bandwidth to 207.32.195.2, then mabey you need to move to North Idaho - lol )))

Hi there, I have been trying to test my CCR1009 connected to a 2Gbit fiber connection and I have tried both servers listed in this thread. I can consistently get 2GB's down (about 2.1-2.3 actually), but never really more than 1Gb up. Is there something I am doing wrong? I had the ISP come test, and they validated 2GB in each direction using their own tests so they claim the problem is in the CCR router.

Is there a way for me to reliably test 2GB in each direction? I am doing UDP testing.

Yeah it's nice but let see when i have time to buy licence for 10G+ CHR and put that to VPS... We are ISP and Hosting Company so we have own peering what is 10G+ now. Also we are sell Mikrotik devices here Finland... Also need QOS rules because someone can use that make connection down... Also need server with 10G+ port, now mostly we have only 1G+...

This connection shared also to our customer also :)

I think on this free open servers have upload limits... Also where are u? So example here Finland cannot get 10G+ because too long line and too much peering... Thats why need also speedtest server here so can test :) - Both server is in US

Let me guess Comcast gigabit-pro? Either way where are you located and what kind of configuration do you have on the ccr? Like NAT or only layer-3? firewall rules or even regex operations?

O come on now ...

It's one thing to run a brief bandwidth test to the public btest server at 207.32.195.2
But it's another thing to run a sustained btest for hours or days non-stop.

Although I have the bandwidth, the simple queues on this btest server will drop down in throughput rates when you keep a sustained btest running. Thus if anybody else tries to btest to the same server, they will never be able to see their peak throughput (because you have the simple queue slowing down the btest server for the next person wanting to test.)

So with that, 216.218.22.xx and 94.142.173.xx , you are more than welcome to btest to 207.32.195.2 - however please make these btest tests brief so the next person can also btest at full speed.

Thank you

Yo , planetcoop

Thought I would ask ...

Are you up for a btest server to btest server test ? (my 207.32.195.2 btest server to your 50.235.23.218 btest server) ?

If you have the bandwidth and available resources ...
Sometime tomorrow morning, I would like to run a 4 hours long btest ( both directions - UDP - with up and down speeds set to 1250M ).

I would like to stress test and hold both directions slightly faster than 1-gig. This way I can verify we are on 10-gig routers and switches end to end and that my normal ISP client traffic does not take any slowdown hits during this hours long test.

I was thinking about starting sometime after 8 AM PST tomorrow Friday. But I will wait for your permission btest first.

Here are the results of the 4-hour long Mikrotik btest test we just performed:

Public btest server 207.32.195.2 to public btest server 50.235.23.218

This 4-hour long extended btest through the Internet used the following settings:
Local Tx Speed 1250M (aka 1.25 Gig)
Remote Tx Speed 1250M (aka 1.25 Gig)

Amount of data transmitted was more than 2.7 TB -&- amount of data received was more than 2.7 TB

FYI: public btest server was just software upgraded moments ago.
As of April 28th, 2017 1PM PST, the Mikrotik CHR-P10 is now running CHR-ROS version v6.39


by the way - - - If there are any other Mikrotik admins willing to run a public btest server , please post and let us know. If you do, we can offer some advice for how to limit the maximum btest bandwidth so that your networks continue running correctly during a btest session.

Why doesn't work only UDP receive direction? All the time only "0 bps" with Both or TCP no problem.

Firewall, most likely. UDP packets from BTest server look like unsolicited traffic.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

Re: ... Firewall, most likely. UDP packets from BTest server look like unsolicited traffic. ...

I agree

The 207.32.195.2 btest server does not have any firewall rules.
The 207.32.195.2 btest server is not behind another firewall.
The 207.32.195.2 btest server is directly connected to the Internet.

If somebody is having problems with a TCP and/or UDP btest in either or both directions, then you may want to examine your firewall rules.

no, typically you do not want the internet or random networks hitting the input chain. you would have to allow for this with a rule additional to default rules but you can also enable/disable rules based on testing or other requirements.

As Tom said in his previous post about the btest, mine is not as accessible due to ipv4 limitations i have. Mine is NAT4 behind an address on a ccr1036 and is also available on ipv6 directly routed through the ccr1036. In my own testing the NATipv4 configuration is not a limitation in testing and has a port range to support testing.

Most probably it is better than nothing. Just add accepting rule for the traffic from the ip addresses you want to get packets from.

First of all, thanks guys for offering these bandwidth tests.
I'm trying to set this up as a script with the output to a file which will then be E-Mailed to me. The idea being that once a day, the router will perform the test. If I see substantial changes in performance, I can investigate. For testing this, I am using the following commands:
[admin@RB750Gr3 #2] /tool> bandwidth-test 50.235.23.208 direction=both duration=15s random-data=yes user=btest password=btest

This produces a correct output after 15 seconds:
status: done testing
duration: 16s
tx-current: 12.1Mbps
tx-10-second-average: 12.1Mbps
tx-total-average: 11.8Mbps
rx-current: 121.2Mbps
rx-10-second-average: 95.4Mbps
rx-total-average: 68.8Mbps
lost-packets: 0
random-data: yes
direction: both
tx-size: 1500
rx-size: 1500

Then I change the command to:
[admin@RB750Gr3 #2] /tool> bandwidth-test 50.235.23.208 direction=both duration=15s random-data=yes user=btest password=btest file="BW_test.txt"

This produces the file BW_test.txt as expected, but not with the expected data. All I get in the output file is:
# may/30/2017 11:28:43 by RouterOS 6.39.1
# software id = [redacted]
#
status: connecting
duration: 0s
tx-current: 0bps
tx-10-second-average: 0bps

I never get any results after connecting.

Any suggestions about what I'm missing???

BTW, this is from the Los Angeles area on my newly installed Spectrum cable based connection (massive improvement over my DSL!)

BTW, ignore my typo of the IP address that I'm using for my testing. I really am using 50.235.23.218

Anyone notice the pickup in testing between both servers and the sustained testing?

On the 207.32.195.2 btest server, I have been seeing some btest sessions that appear to not quit after a few minutes.
I have seen some btest sessions that will go 24 hours non-stop.

Hay everybody - please do not run sustained btest tests. These btest servers are intended for brief btest testing.
When one person holds a continued non-stop btest, then other Mikrotik admins can get skewed results to the same btest server.

Example - on my 207.32.195.2 btest server, I have a simple-queue that will auto drop the bandwidth after a minute or so to around 500 meg in both directions.
When somebody holds an extended btest test, the simple-queue kicks in. Then when a 2nd Mikrotik admin starts a btest, then both admins are sharing a 500 meg max throughput session.
I often see 5 btest tests at the same time - this means that when one person has triggered the simple-queue (because of a lengthy btest) , then all 5 Mikrotik admins can only get a slice to the 500 meg (due to simple-queue).
When nobody in btesting, the simple-queue clears itself and the first person to execute a btest test can actually hit 2-gig and faster for a minute-or-so until the simple-queue kicks in again.

Re - the sustained btest Mikrotik tests

We know who the extended non-stop btest testers are. We just use our Winbox and go to Tools - BTest server - Sessions (there is your IP testing to our btest server)

Please play nice and fair for other btest testers and please do not hold extended non-stop btest tests.

If you have a special need, we can and are willing to set-up something special for temporary extended testing.

Re - the sustained btest Mikrotik tests

Yo Mikrotk ROS programmers ... Is there a possibility of a newer ROS to have a new option in the btest server ?
[ ] Enabled
[ ] Authenticate
Allocate UDP Ports from: [ 2000 ]
Max Sessions: [ 100 ]
Timeout per btest session in seconds [ 300 ]

I really did not want to do this - but I had a customer trying to use the btest server
So I had to simple-queue a continuous non-stop btest from a remote location

Here is the raw filter i am thinking of. ID the user source address with a timer of 5 minutes and then block all traffic for 2 hours until the next time. :)

Looks interesting :)

Does it block only the single IP address for 2 hours and allow everybody else to still test ?

I am gonna have to take a look at this !

It's almost the end of my work day and I am getting tired...
Do you need to enter a specific IP address , or is it automatic ?

I am heading home
Tomorrow I will make a backup and give it a try.

With that - a note to all Mikrotik admins who btest to the 207.32.195.2 server , I am going to be testing the above changes tomorrow.
I will post a final config and then ask for user input on how well it is performing.

Forum and friends. I have just banned any address related to AS14868 and any related AS as i was just hit with a massive wave of btests.
https://ipinfo.io/AS14868

This isnt a business btest server, but rather a CHR in my home. It is free to use and conduct random tests. Please do not use my personal network for business deployments or use without my expressed permission.

Well, this is getting fun. I have now blocked 176.0.0.0-201.0.0.0. Sorry for the inconvenience to the rest of my fellow testers.
