On your hop 9 - it looks like there is a pretty big latency hit in Seattle - which is where I go through.

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.

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.

- - - If you test this , please post any btest throughput results. I am interested if others are also seeing a difference.

FYI re: Q1

Slightly unrelated to a Mikrotik CCR1036-8g-2S

My Mikrotik CHR (public 207.32.195.2 btest server) - Virtual machine running on a very busy VMware ESXi server :

Just now tested: 18.2 Gbps

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:

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.

Q1: 900Mbit/s (cpu core goes to 100%)
huh... my ccr-1036-2g-2s+ shows ~400 Mbps... ROS v6.33

RB2011UiAS and RB951G show same results with ~380 Mbps

Funny thing is my RB951Ui shows ~470Mbps

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
I cant seem to get more than 300-800Kbps on TCP Download?

Are others having an issue like this ?
upto gigabit w/o any problem :)
