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)

So looks like it works with tcp but not udp.

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

Hi,

is servers still runing ? I did try few times last couple of days but never able to connect !

It would be so cool if Mikrotik has someting like that for at least 100Mbit test:)!

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

:shock: Well - my x86 ROS 32-bit locked up again and I had to restart it

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) ?

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

Rather than type the answer to your question, I just made some image snapshots.
Is this what you was asking for ?

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.
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...

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 =)

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.

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.

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.
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 ?

Or is your GPON non-Mikrotik and you simply have a Mikrotik connected ?

Sorry My isp brings a CPE which receive optical fiber directly, behind it i connect MIkrotik with ethernet copper

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.

Hello,
Is there any problem with the 207.32.195.2 test server?
I cannot connect today, nor can't ping it, this is my traceroute:

but using ping.eu comes with transmitted/received packets 100% success.

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.

Heads up -
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

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.

Thanks for your response.
I want to thank you, you are doing great work. Hope you'll get server running quick.
Merry Christmas from Poland to you, North Idaho Tom Jones, and to the whole forum :)

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.
