Since I didn't find a solution to my problem in the past posts I just have to make a new one
I have a 2.9 Mikrotik Router (2.4 GHz Celeron, 512 MB RAM, Intel NICs) with 2 connections to 2 different ISPs. Both BGP Peers are up an running, but since today, the router has a load of more than 80%!!!
There are no firewall rules, no queues, nothing, just some (about 10) static routes and bgp activated. Both connections are 20mbit but only about 10 mbit on each peer is used.
I can't imagine that this load is normal?? Some time ago, a Cisco 7206VXR routed the same traffic without any problem (as far as this can be compared). Ping and throughput are fine, but the high cpu load won't let me sleep well
Please let me know if anyone has some information (or a possible solution) for my problem.
Thanks and have a nice day
