Shaper / policer

Hello all,

We've been trying to get a customer get close to 1Gbps on a 1Gbps circuit when doing an Ookla speedtest.
The customer has an RB3011 as its router which we as an ISP manage.
The initial TCP resulted in download 477 Mbps and upload 921 Mbps, but later tests showed different results (like 400 down / 500 up).

Later in the process we had a meeting with the fiber carrier where we did some tests on a testcircuit and test mikrotik.
There we had a 1Gbps port but a 200Mbps circuit. The policer was limited on 200m and the burst-size was 400k.
Mikrotik bandwidth tests showed around 130 down and 130 up. Removing the burst-size resulted in a clear 190 down 190 up Bandwidth test.
But this is not something that can stay in production, the 400k burst-size value was narrowly calculated. If the burst-size value gets removed, other customers could potentially 'feel' it.

I'm therefore wondering if there's an equivalent shaper / policer configuration on a Mikrotik. I've read that queue tree is the closest to what I could need.

have a look at
and here

you have option of using simple queues (w/o hierarchy) or queue tree (w/o hierarchy).

Remove that low quality RB3011.

Need to piut a CCR-1009.

What do you mean by low quality? I know that doing a Bandwidth Test on a RB3011, it will spike its CPU.
But doing a speedtest (ookla for example) on a laptop behind the RB3011, it shouldn't be doing anything of that right?
