RouterOS v5.7 released

Thu Sep 15, 2011 11:38 am

What's new in 5.7 (2011-Sep-14 10:54):

*) ovpn client - fixed crash when user name or password together
were longer than 11 symbols;
*) sstp client - added an option to skip
server address verification from certificate;
*) fixed problem - router crashed sometimes when using USB modem;
*) userman - show overall totals, show user totals if user has more
than one entry;
*) lcd - retrieving '/system lcd page' configuration did not work with
hundreds of interfaces;
*) webfig - added ability to reorder fields in skins;
*) webfig - added ability to add/remove new tabs & separators in skins;
*) webfig - added ability to add any field to special status page;
*) webfig - fixed problem when user sometimes got logged out with message
"internal server error";
*) webfig - logout didn't log user out from router;
*) webfig - added System/Password for changing user's own password;
*) system reset-configuration - if keep-users is specified ssh user keys are
preserved as well;
*) ipsec - new exchange mode (main-l2tp) for l2tp tunnel users to allow
FQDN as a peer ID with preshared key authorization in main mode;
*) ssh - fix possible server crash when connection is interrupted;
*) improved ipv4 forwarding performance on all boards with simple configuration
by up to 30%;
*) add passthrough setting to change-dscp, change-ttl, change-mss,
strip-ipv4-options, change-hop-limit mangle targets;
*) ipsec - fixed problem of RB1200 rebooting when large amount of UDP traffic is
sent through IPsec;
*) sniffer - added more useful packet filtering options, also available as quick
mode command parameters;
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

Torrent isn't up jet, but HTTP download works just fine.

Check out queue type
/ queue type print 
    5 name="multi-queue-ethernet-default" kind=mq-pfifo mq-pfifo-limit=50 
Is this for interfaces that have multiple RX/TX queues?

This queue type is designed for our new dual core router RB1100AHx2, but you can use it on interfaces with multiple rx/tx queues (check "/system resources irq" menu) on multi-core machines. To make use of this queue type you have to turn off RPS on those interfaces. Most effect should be seen in configurations without simple queues and queue trees as there are still room for SMP improvements.

Hi mrz,

Is there a performance benefit to this type of queue over RPS on x86 based routers with Intel NIC's ?

Hi mrz,

RPS is more artificial (software based). This queue type is more hardware based, so yes there should be performance benefits. You can test it and post your results.

nothing talk about the port flapping?

V5.4 is work bit good, but after that version cause some potential port flapping issue.
can look into this urgently?

Support layer-7 has been fixed ?
There have been improvements in wireless interfaces?
The problems in the bridge mode RB433AH been fixed?
The risk of this update is great because it never has any update fixes all bugs and there is always new.
All Mikrotik consumers are professionals with many clients.
Updates bring bad tested many problems causing loss of the provider customers.

Updates bring bad tested many problems causing loss of the provider customers.
When a new version of anything for anything comes out don't install it on production gear. Install it on some lab equipment. If you don't have lab equipment wait until other people have installed it on their lab equipment and reported back in the forums, and consider getting some lab equipment of your own so you can make sure to test all the functionality you use. You should do that with everything your income relies on, not just RouterOS.

Installing a new version on production gear the day it comes out is just crazy.
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

Hello fewi

I agree to put in gear production is crazy.
Often the laboratory test does not have the same potential as the gears in production.
It would be better the new versions released with less bugs.
Providers would have fewer problems with their customers.
All betting on the success and MikroTik.

Just yesterday I emailed mikrotik that snmp and nv2 together has issues in the 5.7 release. I disable snmp and random lockups stop. This issue started in 5.6 routeros. Before I was using routeros 5.4 and it worked. Keep in mind before upgrading. Its a know issue and Mikrotik has been working with me. Still no fix for it as far as I know. I installed 5.7 could days ago that they released to me.

I haven't tested. I have used layer 7 in the past but not recently. I am just trying to get mikrotik to fix the lockup issue when using snmp. I heard there is lockup issues with packet flow also and 5.7.

So if you have a complex config the performance gain is not as good?
Or you need to execute a simple configuration to make everything go faster?

I am not sure this sentence is either technical or makes any sense at all...

Tell us about your experiences Hellweiss. I upgraded a few RBs and by the looks of it i see no difference in performance.

Well, it is working now. I don't know what was wrong - I've tried multiple NTP servers and nothing... Then I tried to install NTP package and it was working. Then I've uninstalled it and it is still working now. :-|

How do I see this? A packet enters router and is now send 30% faster to the port it has the gateway of destination on? Is there anything to gain here? Simple config = one route only in router. How much performance can be improved on here.

I can't place this improvement. Can anybody explain?

And Indeed, I feel sorry for those with complicate configurations. They miss the boat! :lol:

They obviously cut the basic packet latency. If your firewall, queue rules, bridging, ... don't swamp the difference you'll see an improvement.

If before the improvement your packet took 1000 angel heartbeats (AH) to go from in to out and your filtering rules only added 200AH you would see a 25% improvement (300/(1000+200)). If on the other hand your filter rules add 2000AH you'll only see a 10% improvement (300/(1000+2000)), and so on. Obviously with zero extra filtering overhead you get 30% (300/(1000+0)).

IPv4 forwarding (routing) throughput performance has been increased ~30%, most benefit (all 30%) you will see in configurations that do only routing - the more other configuration you have, the less overall performance benefit you will see.

This performance only fo routerboard ? or for x86 ? or fo both platform ? And what is simple configuration - only one default route or full BGP table without firewall ?

I think there is only one way to find out for sure - write down CPU loads and throughput with v5,6, upgrade and write down more, then compare. Post results in forum.

Is it me, or didn't I read this type of fix recently in a changelog of a previous release? :) (some console and ssh crash related issue)

Nah, I'm not complaining, I just thought when reading this "hey, they fixed frontstab again", but then I remembered Valve is not latvian :)
RB450G - OpenWrt (so much more stable than with routerOS)
-> now: UBNT EdgeRouter Lite

Finished testing for 5.7 waiting for 5.8:

Just tested one CPE to AP in lab.

- Connections hang in all modes (801.11/nstreme/nv2) when there is interference.
Connection is up but no traffic. After a while connection drops and comes back up.
Interference is generated by an ap 4m distance with 10db lower power without a cpe
connected. I'm not sure this is a wireless problem as the connection stays up for a while
while pings do not pass.
- ping suddenly did not work from CPE to AP. I have to enter source ip. Looking at
packets CPE has chosen the wrong (ethernet IP) to send packets over wlan1
- dhcp sometimes hog cpu
- Winbox crashes on win7
- CPE crashes and needs a power cycle

CPE is RB711-5Hn-MMCX, AP is RB411AH with R52nM chain1+2 enabled.

I've only done ping and bandwidth test between CPE and AP and change protocols
between 802.11,nstreme and nv2. Testing 20MHz Channel, 5GHz-A/N, no rate settings.
security profile wpa2 PSK. AP bridges between wlan1 and ether1.

After the CPE crash I stopped ...

May be someone at MT should do some testing. I dont think I've done extensive tests
to run into a lot of problems.

my opinion - something is really wrong with your setup, or hardware. it's not normal that you are the only one with problems all the time.

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:24 pm

I installed 5.7 on two routers which are connected with a wireless bridge.

The core router is an RB1100 which has about a dozen vlans. After rebooting the RB1100 the device was unresponsive. I drove down to the NOC and found that the ethernet port connecting the wireless bridge to my house did not have a link. This specific port was set up static as 100/full and would not reconnect to the 100/full wireless bridge until I disabled and re-enabled the port.

After restoring access to the router, I noticed that the CPU utilization was pegged at 100%. At that point I forwarded a supout to support, then downgraded to 5.6. No problems there.

When I arrived back home I logged into my RB493. That also was pegged at 100% CPU utilization. I have not downgraded it back to 5.6 yet.

Hope this helps!

May be I'm the one wining more than some others. But following this thread I read that I'm not the only one
with problems:

> The problems in the bridge mode RB433AH been fixed?
> I disable snmp and random lockups stop
> Found another nv2 bug I could not fix. When I downgraded to 5.4 all my customers were stable
> some snmp problems.

My setup is quite simple and always the same on some hundred cpes. Find config below.
In short it does DHCP Server on LAN, NAT and gets an IP on wlan1.

AP bridges wlan1 and ether1. CPE gets wlan IP from Routerboard to which the AP is connected
on ether1 (RB450G, RB1100, ...).

When I do lab testing I take an AP, CPE from the shelf, update to the newest version (including FW),
connect my LAP to the CPE the AP to my office LAN, do bandwidth tests and use this connection for
a while for emailing/surfing/.. to see how it behaves. To see interference behavior I start a second
AP in some distance on the same/nearby channel with different power levels and watch what happens
while doing bandwidth tests.

So nothing special here.

I just post my observations ...

Why I am whining: Crashing CPEs would give me a crazy lot of phone calls and a really bad time.
May be it's a hardware fault but it is not likely as I took the same CPE for my last tests
without crashing.

To make it clear: ROS is the best system building a Wisp and I like it very much. I dont want
to talk it down. I am happy if someone on the list warns on things that dont work so he
saves me the time running into the same problems.

So what I wanted to say: I dont think 5.7 is ready for prime time now.

*) improved ipv4 forwarding performance on all boards with simple configuration
by up to 30%

THANK You THANK You, it rocks ;-))

regards
So if you have a complex config the performance gain is not as good?
Or you need to execute a simple configuration to make everything go faster?

I am not sure this sentence is either technical or makes any sense at all...

Tell us about your experiences Hellweiss. I upgraded a few RBs and by the looks of it i see no difference in performance.
Whats so difficult to understand ?!? I've a performance gain on my RouterBoards with ROS 5.7.

One of them is e.g. a RB750 L2TP VPN Server. Connecting to the Mailserver and syncing my
Mailbox now works a lot faster.

My RB450G just upgraded from 5.6 to 5.7 .
It works fine, but the CPU usage get high in "dhcp" package.
Anyone has this?
I've seen this. Vanished after a while. Please send to support@mikrotik.com
If you can reproduce it.
I tried in factory default setting.
When "switch all port" is set to NO in 5.7, the CPU usage would go to high in dhcp package.
With the same setting in 5.6, CPU is ran around below 3 to 5.

of course using "switch" will decrease CPU load, as connections are not going through RouterOS, but switched directly.

Hi ...

I upgraded untill now only 3 boards:

* RB411AR (ufl version, no voltage monitor series)
* RB433
* WRAP (Geode X86 266MHz)

The only issue untill now was the X86. It hung up after a couple of hours and was necessary to power cycle it. Now it's up for 18h. Watchdog timer + auto supout was disabled (I even don't know if this feature works on X86 the same way it does on RBs e.g. just HW watchdog)

Still waiting to upgrade the 433UAHs.

You are repeating yourself in making no sense statements. "Syncing my Mailbox now works a lot faster"?? Maybe there were less mail to process. :shock:

If you want to make a statement that something works much better you have to give some proper example.
Like; before 10Mb of mails took me 75 seconds and now 10Mb of mails take me only 55 seconds.
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

I wasnt on 5.6 and it had snmp issues also. So I moved to a known working routeros 5.4
what snmp issue are you talking about? did you email support?
Yes I did email them about it with the supout. They kept having me try 3 different revisions of the 5.7 and the last one also had an additional problem with NV2. I don't want to bug my customers too much. I will take a break then come back and help you guys later. But it is very clear when I upgrade my 100+ aps to 5.7 with snmp enabled I have many many issues. I disable snmp and lots of problems go away. The routerboards that dont run NV2 never lock up with snmp. Just the aps with NV2 on it. Its almost like they are connected in some way. Anyways I am going to clear my head. Chat you guys later. I did create supouts on this topic.

Are you still considering improvements in VLAN management in both the switch and bridge?

Ticket#2011072966000478

I've nearly convinced everyone here that we don't need to spend big money on Cisco switches when MT will do the trick, but not being able to restrict VLAN trunking without creating 2 rules per vlan is going to really slow things down.

I would try this. Make a supout as the cpu is high. There is no way they cant see the issue that way. Is your cpu still high. Want me to look at it?

Hey, thanks for your response, I have sent that file to support and opened a new ticket.

Downgrading to 5.6 in the meantime fixed it for me, CPU back to almost 0%.

Ok cool. 5.2 and 5.4 I have had the best experience with. I have a lot of mikrotiks so I know real quick if its not working.

I've also had problems with cpu usage pegging to 100% in 5.6 and 5.7, but mine has always been the routing package. I submitted a trouble ticket #2011091366000468 with a supout, but no word back yet. Keeping my fingers crossed!

My lockups could be because the cpu is maxing out. I did supout that also.

I noticed that after the upgrade my l2mtu is now 1520 rather than 1524 as previously documented. Not a serious issue for me, but it seems like it might be for folks who've tuned their MTUs on other gear to match the old values.

Any particular reason for the change?

I would try this. Make a supout as the cpu is high. There is no way they cant see the issue that way. Is your cpu still high. Want me to look at it?
Hey, thanks for your response, I have sent that file to support and opened a new ticket.

Downgrading to 5.6 in the meantime fixed it for me, CPU back to almost 0%.
I overcome the trouble in 5.7 with turn on "switch all port" and then reboot the 450G.
It calm down near to 0% CPU.

This is the CPE config. The CPEs dont bridge.

Whats so difficult to understand ?!? I've a performance gain on my RouterBoards with ROS 5.7.

One of them is e.g. a RB750 L2TP VPN Server. Connecting to the Mailserver and syncing my
Mailbox now works a lot faster.

Regards
You are repeating yourself in making no sense statements. "Syncing my Mailbox now works a lot faster"?? Maybe there were less mail to process. :shock:

If you want to make a statement that something works much better you have to give some proper example.
Like; before 10Mb of mails took me 75 seconds and now 10Mb of mails take me only 55 seconds.
Dont know what your Problem is, works faster for me, over and out.

Anyone had any issues upgrading the routerboard bootloader firmware? It took a couple of tries on some other units but I have a 450G that's not taking the upgrade. It says it is, but after a reboot it's still the same. I haven't had this issue with previous versions.

Ok, missed that. But then I would like to see the bridge part of the AP. Give us the config of the AP and tonight I can take a look why your units crash. Your config's are not so much different as mine but I have no crashing units...

The same problem i am experiencing with a dozen of RB750. Not a single one of them upgrades the bootloader. This bug is present also in v5.4, v5.5, v5.6.

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

@ste;
You'll be happy to hear I now run in the same problem as you prescibed:

New rb411, basic config.
I all do is bridge the wlan port with ether1 and give the bridge one IP address.
Everything is fine until some traffic start to run over the bridge. Ethernetport becomes unavailable. Just dead.
Power cycle does not bring it back.
I have to resets config with the screwdriver manner, after that rb411 boots up normal and works again in basic config.

Second attempt, setup my wanted config now in 5.6. Works like a charm. After a while update to 5.7 again, router keeps on running. Put some traffic over it, Ethernet port becomes dead.

So their is definitely a bug in 5.7 that has to do with the bridge function.

I use the board now with 5.6 which is proven to be fine, also on bridges (I have some config similar like the one prescribed in my backhauls and they run with heavy traffic already for months.)

I am SOO happy you made an alert on this bug. If not and I would have started to implement 5.7 on my network it would have brought it almost completely down! :shock:

Quit funny! :(
What do you think I was doing?

It is only that ste reported the issue and was accused of making noise for no reason. I proof he is right.
Apart from that, I have about 40 different configs all over my network. I usually start to upgrade on boards on my desk. Than some boards with easy access and not important and then units further out in the field.
Some bugs usually only come up while rb is taken in real environment.
This is a typical example. I already have several boards upgraded, even in live environment and they have no issues with 5.7.
Even a board on my desk in bridge mode initially worked, even after a reboot and a power cycle.
Only after putting real traffic on it the issue popped up.

So please spare me your ´advice´ and come up with some constructive comments please.

I have only one RB 450G for home use, It is affected by the 100% CPU usage bug, reverting to 5.6 fixes it for me, YMMV.

No problem for me - I have RB750 with firmware version 2.36 - I have downloaded it from routerboard.com, saved to RB750, set "upgrade", restart and works fine.

Any particular reason for the change?
Maybe it may have something common with this bug: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 50#p277655 (and previous messages from me) - L2MTU is lowered a little in 5.7 and works fine. I don't understand why bigger values was working in previous versions and not later.

ROS v5.7 on Intel "Sandy Bridge" works great!
With Intel network adapters (E1G42ET and E1G44HT), exceptional performance! (shaper & vpn)
Integrated on-board network adapter does not work, as warned.

Anyone know if the 'sunhme' driver was compiled into mikrotik 5.7? I'm looking to pick up an Atom-based board but need four 100mbit ports and don't feel like spending a lot of cash on an ethernet card (I'll keep the Athlon64 3000+ with two dual-port Compaq/Intel cards I'm using now). Tons of these Sun quad cards in the surplus market, they do work in linux with an open source driver. Performance isn't too shabby from what I've read.

Performance is great with my current setup, but I'm looking to shave off a few watts if possible...

Also upgraded 2 x86 test boxes this weekend and both are functioning correctly at this time with no visible performance issues.

After update I have configured interfaces and dhcp client for WAN and dhcp server for LAN, after that my rb750gl was constantly rebooting itself. Boot time has increased as well. Winbox connect only from 2ed, 3d time. I didn't act like that prior to update

I already went back to v5.2.

I have used ftp method to update and probably it does work properly.

As my firmware didn't change.
I will update again but with terminal method.

I upgraded one wireless bridge (RB333) and one router (RB750G) from 5.6 to 5.7 and got only 10MBit/s speed on the ethernet link between these both devices.

Downgraded to 5.6 and it works like it did before the upgrade (100MBit/s).

I can confirm: as soon as you disable the interface used by dhcp-client, 'dhcp' process eats the whole CPU core until reboot

upd: after disabling dhcp-client, CPU goes down, just not momentarily

I have a RB who was with the 450G MK 4.17 working perfectly well with an application developed in Delphi and uses the woodssh, then upgraded to 5.7 MK, now the application is running and suddenly stops communicating via ssh, so I have to restart the RB to return to work.

if I access IP Service List and put 0.0.0.0 / 0 in from avaliable and tap OK also back up and running, and when I have to go back to it and remove the 0.0.0.0 / 0 is like liberate something.
I auditioned with Putty and he's as connection refused.

Someone could tell me what could cause this problem, it is only with ssh, if I use the Winbox can access normally.

when ssh is not working on the router, create support output file and send it to support. Make sure you are running 5.7

IPv6
Starting from v5.8 RouterOS supports IPv6 prefix delegation according to RFC 3633.
DHCPv6 server works in parallel with regular DHCP server when address-pool6 option is set.
DHCPv6 uses following options:
authoritative
lease-time
address-pool6
interface
name


Looks like it might be around the corner...

Betas??? You mean the releases WAY BACK before RC1? v5 is no longer in beta.

Or, are you talking about, for example, the pre-release of v5.8 that some of us are using?

Seeing as that is not an official Mikrotik site, I don't see how it is any better than placing bugs on this forum. Mikrotik is much more likely to see bugs written here than on some external site.
It's an ordered list of bugs affecting different versions and if they're known to be resolved or not, if you'd rather have to search the forums to find any confirmed bugs before upgrading you're welcome to do so, however the solution I've offered is something that could potentially become incredibly useful with more input.

It's not intended to be submitted to mikrotik, bugs that are placed there have already been ticketed to support, we're simply keeping track of them so other can benefit knowing what issues are outstanding.

I have RB 450G and RB 493AH, only used it for loadbalancing and traffic shaping, no hotspot/wireless/ip6.
Mostly use Queue and /ip route, ROS 5.7 stable and got less cpu load than before version.
But old problem port/ether flapping still happening when i set my RB493AH using PPPoE (Adsl modem Bridge mode), connect and disconnect after 3-4minute, but if i set mikrotik to non PPPoE/NAT only (Adsl Modem TP-Link 8817 at PPPoE mode) work perfect. So i tried test using diffrent modem D-link 526b (broadcom chip) at Bridge mode and work good. I think the problem was TP-Link 8817 (Trend Chip) after 3 same modem tested.

I hope next ROS will fix compatibility issue with some adsl modem chipset.

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

Wed Sep 21, 2011 9:57 am

Are there any more info about this problem? After upgrade to 5.7 I am experiencing ether1 problems. The link goes up and down randomly, sometimes it registers at only 10mbps half-duplex, then suddenly goes down. Physically nothing has been changed or touched, so there are very little chance it could be network adapter problem or something of coincidence. And that routerboard is mounted on a mast, that I would have to disassemble to bring it down. I really don't want to do that just for the screwdriver trick.

Today first time ever I have downgraded ROS, but unfortunately in 5.6 the problem remains.
Everything is fine until some traffic start to run over the bridge. Ethernetport becomes unavailable. Just dead.
Power cycle does not bring it back.
I have to resets config with the screwdriver manner, after that rb411 boots up normal and works again in basic config.

Second attempt, setup my wanted config now in 5.6. Works like a charm. After a while update to 5.7 again, router keeps on running. Put some traffic over it, Ethernet port becomes dead.

So their is definitely a bug in 5.7 that has to do with the bridge function.

I use the board now with 5.6 which is proven to be fine, also on bridges (I have some config similar like the one prescribed in my backhauls and they run with heavy traffic already for months.)

I am SOO happy you made an alert on this bug. If not and I would have started to implement 5.7 on my network it would have brought it almost completely down! :shock:

that is good for data source when sending out data. Router usually received already segmented data and all it has to do is route/filter these packets. Or i have misunderstood your request completely.

No DHCPv6 :( Booooooooooooo

So whats is the plan for DHCPv6 now ?

And what happened to Betas ? Now we just get final releases ?
it was cleary stated that dhcpv6-pd will not be here no sooner than 5.8
Sorry my bad :( Im just impatient.. Plus not checking in and keeping up with the forum as much as I should..

Doesnt a "pre-release" count as a Beta ? If there are upcoming versions of the OS it would be cool if they were public beta..

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released NO command "routerboard"

Wed Sep 21, 2011 5:44 pm

Hello, I upgraded the routerboard 433AH to the lastest verison 5.7, but I can´t find the command

/system routerboard print

I gives me an error that shows "routerboard" isnt recognized.

It is weird because there is no problem with updated 411AH to 5.7, it shows this command.

Thanks for any help, maybe a bug?

under '/system package' check if you have routerboard package installed. Most probably it is not.

:( No dhcpv6...

It would be cool if Mikrotik had some kind of bugtracker, wouldn't it?

Normis has said this is planned for 5.8, I'm planning on holding him to that!
The bugtracker, or dhcpv6? :)

does anyone noticed strange behavior of ethernet interfaces. 3 links with 5.7 routeros and i noticed after couple of hours, days ether port stops to transmit ip transmission. Seems connected but can only access through wireless link or not sure if mac-telnet would work but for sure IP ping from another one directly connected mikrotik doesn't work. Restarting interfaces and enable/disable IP doesn't solve the problem only reboot - routeros 5.7 and firmware 2.36
I have 8 routerboards with this firmware 435G, 433AH and 450G - and on 433AH and 435 transmission on ethernet stops afetr stometime. part of them with ospf part with bridge and vpls tunnel without ospf - .

Should I apply multi-queue-ethernet-default to each simple queue to to advance and Total if I shaping by ip by general rule?
Or its just enough to apply to interface.

Well, there is definitely something going on with the Ethernet interfaces. Have you tried this: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 41#p282141
Maybe downgrading of the firmware would help you?

Please try and let us know. If it does help, definitely report it to MT support. I start to think more and more in a direction indeed the firmware is part of the many problems we still see randomly around with Ethernet interfaces.

If several users can confirm downgrading is solving the problem MT can figure out where the difference is in-between the different versions and patch the bug.
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.

apply it on interface that has several tx/rx queues displayed in '/system resource irq' other way it will not bring you any improvement.

I can confirm that on my SXTs. What was the default state? I don't have any SXT on my eyes, so I can't experiment, but I'd like to have functional indicator of signal strength.

*) userman - show overall totals, show user totals if user has more
than one entry;
Can anyone explain what exactly is meant by that - I've installed the new version at both my radius server with userman package and my hotspot servers, and still no luck - userman does not keep ant statistics - once a profile expires, userman forgets all about it - keeps log of sessions, but is unable to display start time, end time, till time and so on. Instead it just displays "unknown", which bugs me to no end.

I have to account many profiles each month - how many profiles from a given period are activated, when are they expired, so on. Right now the only way to do it is to click each and every one of them separately, look at sessions log and write it down. And they are THOUSANDS. The only relieve I had was for about a month - some of the accounts displayed properly at "till time" column. Once I upgraded from 5.5 to 5.6 though, they stopped doing it and I went back to counting one by one.

I'm waiting for a fix to accounting for almost an year, and still no luck - is it so hard to fix a few MAJOR userman bugs? The only reason to buy a Level 6 license is to use Usermanager package with no limits - well, I bought several of them, and still don't have anything stable and working for my money.

Make sure you don't have DHCP enabled on any unused interfaces. I read it should be fixed in 5.8

I have DHCP enabled on about 20 vlan interfaces, and 1 DHCP disabled on a vlan interface.

According to Normis from Mikrotik:
"remember also that in v5.7 there is a DHCP server bug, where it causes high resource usage if it's on a disabled interface. this is fixed in v5.8"

Yup, enabling the disabled DHCP on a fully functioning vlan interface fixed it.

your NIC should support it. Intel 82574L has four queues, 82576 has eight queues...

about using the same IRQ by your both NICs - try to look at your BIOS settings...

how much you have routers in one area? We have about 100 routers and the more changes in, the SXT is more filled with memory.
I do not know what causes it. I assume that OSPF.

workaround is ok, but still this should be fixed. (or I'm the only one with this error ? )

As a workaround, you might also consider using a scheduler to toggle the winbox service every hour or so.

Thank you for the release of v.5.7

It sure would be great to get help with wireless timeouts when using nv2. I continue to get them with all the firmware versions I have tried. Connections can go for hours and even days with no errors and then I will get a wireless disconnect due to synchronization timeout. Occasionally I will also get media access errors ass well. Will new versions firrnware work to address these issues?

Are there any more info about this problem? After upgrade to 5.7 I am experiencing ether1 problems. The link goes up and down randomly, sometimes it registers at only 10mbps half-duplex, then suddenly goes down. Physically nothing has been changed or touched, so there are very little chance it could be network adapter problem or something of coincidence. And that routerboard is mounted on a mast, that I would have to disassemble to bring it down. I really don't want to do that just for the screwdriver trick.

Today first time ever I have downgraded ROS, but unfortunately in 5.6 the problem remains.
Your issue is not related to bridging, but to ethernet port flapping issue being speculated to be related to firmware issues:

Finished testing for 5.7 waiting for 5.8:

Just tested one CPE to AP in lab.

- Connections hang in all modes (801.11/nstreme/nv2) when there is interference.
Connection is up but no traffic. After a while connection drops and comes back up.
Interference is generated by an ap 4m distance with 10db lower power without a cpe
connected. I'm not sure this is a wireless problem as the connection stays up for a while
while pings do not pass.
- ping suddenly did not work from CPE to AP. I have to enter source ip. Looking at
packets CPE has chosen the wrong (ethernet IP) to send packets over wlan1
- dhcp sometimes hog cpu
- Winbox crashes on win7
- CPE crashes and needs a power cycle
CPE is RB711-5Hn-MMCX, AP is RB411AH with R52nM chain1+2 enabled.

I've only done ping and bandwidth test between CPE and AP and change protocols
between 802.11,nstreme and nv2. Testing 20MHz Channel, 5GHz-A/N, no rate settings.
security profile wpa2 PSK. AP bridges between wlan1 and ether1.

After the CPE crash I stopped ...

May be someone at MT should do some testing. I dont think I've done extensive tests
to run into a lot of problems.
Dude something is wrong with ur hardware

disable winbox
enable winbox
?..
thanks for the tip.
I'll post the result next time it refuses the connection.

Nope. Happens more often than that. Router has 2GB RAM installed (x86).

I think this is a well-known bug for more then a year.

I think our Latvian friends are overwhelmed with working on new features, new products, a lot of incompatibility issues and strange bugs, that this one is very low priority.

It has always been my opinion that they should expand staff but paying good professionals will lower the owners riches so... ;)

I have to agree here, after getting a recent email from Mikrotik informing me that due to other priorities HWMP+ was not being actively maintained, and that they would not be able to investigate a repeatable problem that is a major issue for us (stale FDB entries when clients connect via wlan interfaces then roam) :(

My RB450G just upgraded from 5.6 to 5.7 .
It works fine, but the CPU usage get high in "dhcp" package.
Anyone has this?
We also have this problem. I already sent supout file to support but they say the cannot find anything ...
I have that problem also :( This is on a 450G board:
          cpu-used: 100
  cpu-used-per-cpu: 100%
       free-memory: 242784
Me too. 100% on dhcp. On 450G

Actually I have a couple of stable routers with 5.7 (450G and x86 P4 one core/thread). I guess its a hit and miss :( This is still not good enough though as I have a ton of other routers with tons of issues.

Please note that this happens not only when UPnP makes a NAT rule for the WinBox port, getting in the way of us connecting, but in cases when UPnP is not turned on as well.

I've tested 5.7 on rb750, the problem I found was too heavy cpu performance up to 100%, when I look at the /tool profile turned out to flash takes a lot of resources. And I return to 5.5 everything is running normally again.

Could it be you stumbled on a scheduled flash check or something else that is scheduled to run as a maintenance task?

MikroTik staff please clarify if such tasks are likely to cause 100% CPU.

On the cpu at 100%, in my case I use Zenoss to monitor the network. Zenoss re-models each device every 12 hours which uses snmp. At those intervals, I see 100% cpu warnings coming from the 5.7 ROS devices. I didn't see that in 4.17.

Thank you for recent release and addressing a lot of issues we had with 5.6.

A few months ago I asked if it would be possible to add back the ability to sort by port in the Torch. Back then I thought I was all by myself but now if I search on port sort, I see a lot more people complaining about the loss of this function.

A lot of "strange" activity can't always be detected by a smart script or a config, which is why we also scan our network routers manually, especially when the maps report packet loss or unusual traffic.

THe ability to sort by port (both for src and dst) allows us to reveal viruses, aggressive and encrypted P2P, a stuck process that tries to go to Adobe, etc. etc.

Would it be possible to add this function back to the Winbox GUI?
What was the reasoning in taking it out?

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

I have problems with the dns server. This is the second time this week that my Mikrotik RouterOS 5.7 Core DNS stopped responding.

I try ping google from console and I get IP DNS error or something like that. I reboot the rb1200 and works fine for a few more days.

This never happened to me with OS 5.6. I'm using google's dns (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4).

Does anyone have any idea of what could be the problem?

Thank you.

Google's DNS server itself had problems ?

When it happened to me I just put in another DNS server.

OH yes it can.
Your server stores dns resolves in a cache. If this was a piece of date coming from the google dns server you cache has the faulty data. When you reboot your router the cache gets flushed and new data needs to be used. If now this new data is ok the router works fine, for as long as it takes to get the wrong data from google again....

From my experience there is a problem with ROS' built-in DNS resolver when cache size is set to value bigger than 8192 kB.
With different versions of ROS there was same problem, no response from DNS cache.
Also max. UDP packet size should be increased to value bigger than default 512 bytes (4096-8192).

ROS v5.7 doesn't print and export IPv6 addresses of BGP peers:
/routing bgp peer print
Flags: X - disabled, E - established 
 #   INSTANCE        REMOTE-ADDRESS                                 REMOTE-AS  
 0   default         (unknown)                                      12345
There is the same problem with export. IPv6 adresess are always assigned as (unknown). WinBox shows IPv6 addresses correctly without any problems.

Why would the DNS packet be so big?
Because to allow support for DNSSEC packet size allowed should be a minimum of 4096
The second issue is related to the packet size. The authors of the DNSSEC standard realized that there might be a potential problem with TCP queries. TCP puts a higher burden on the DNS servers. (TCP is much more expensive to process than UDP.) To avoid too much TCP traffic, the authors made the EDNS0 extension mandatory for DNSSEC. EDNS0 is a standard that among other things allows a client to signal that it is capable of receiving DNS replies over UDP that are larger than the previous limit of 512 bytes. Some firewalls are not aware of the fact that the EDNS0 standard allows for larger packets and they block any DNS packet larger than the previous limit. Other firewalls allow for the large packets by default, whereas a few vendors require the firewall to be manually configured to do so. Any device in the path that does packet inspection in the application layer must be aware of the EDNS0 standard to be able to make a correct decision whether to forward the packet or not.

I have problems with the dns server. This is the second time this week that my Mikrotik RouterOS 5.7 Core DNS stopped responding.

I try ping google from console and I get IP DNS error or something like that. I reboot the rb1200 and works fine for a few more days.
This happens on 4.x versions for OpenDNS servers 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 and for Google DNS servers too.
The particular routerboard for DNS resolving runs HotSpot and is a gateway for the network, ROS 4.17.
One thing I noticed is that you CAN ping the IP address, for ex.208.67.220.220 from the DNS resolver routerboard, but you CAN'T ping the same IP address from the inside of the network, for ex. from client who is authenticated on the HotSpot and Skype running, you get an answer from the DNS resolver routerboard: "destination host unreachable".

I've noticed this problem with earlier versions starting from 4.5 (don't sure for earlier versions) and only a reboot fixes it. Hope this will shred more light on this problem.

So I should make a script that checks ping to google.com and reboot the router automatically or is there another way?

The legend is: while reading ip address: could not get answer from dns server

I'm putting the dns cache back to 1024k, I had it at 10240k for more caching.

I'll let you guys know if it happends again.

ROS 5.7, firmware v. 2.36. I Have the problem - RB435G at random times(it may be one hour or one day) freezes ethernet interfaces to pass ip traffic, interface at that time says that "link ok"(i use 1G connection with different devices at different places, ~8 BOARDS with PC and board-to-board connections, most time of all its freezes at 2 RB435g's with bridge functions- wireless interface bridged with ethernet, not matter with which - ether1 or ether2 or ether3), wireless interface at the same time work properly and i can access the board via wireless, after rebooting board its' all right for a random time. A guess i have similar problem with the same topics - http://bugs.mikrotik-routeros.com/view.php?id=15, http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 1&start=50, http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 5G#p282149, http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=55610 etc.

Only one solution is to turn off or on /interface Ethernet switch set 0 switch_all_ports=yes or no, after that routerboard starts to transmit data. But i don't use hardware switch for boards, no master or slave interfaces, only program switch for bridging Ethernet iface with wireless, Don't know exact what the problem is, power supply is good, cables is good(at first time we think that the cables cat5e was caused the problem for 1G connection, and than replaced them to cat7 cables - have the same issue).
A hope for some assistance, it's not suitable to downgrade software or firmware on boards to avoid similar problems with configuration - a can't to stop transmission through that link cause they are situated on commercial towers and it's not real to get the boards directly.
Anyone suggest?
My opinion - it's a firmware trouble of RB435G at a side of Ethernet sensitivity, may be i'm wrong.
I hope the MTIK team to help.
Thanks

MikroTik gigabit ports have trouble from time to time.

RB450G different 5x versions different boards
RB250GS firmware 1.6

Auto-negotiation issues? Some sort of additional instability?

Hi,

i have some troubles with this version:
on RB450G: high CPU usage (DHCP package) - i`m using vlans, so DHCP server is connected to vlan, not ethernet directly.
on all boards (and all 5x versions, i think):
- DNS package - when i remove static record, this one persist in memory until router is rebooted.
- Graphs: are completly deleted, when RB is rebooted.
so, i`m waiting for next version of RouterOS.

I love how MikroTik are improving on features like the Sniffer. The new filters are awesome.

My home RB450G was running 5.7 since it was released and just today it made me a problem (apart from DNS issues I thought were due to 8.8.8.8 being down)

The problem was that in Profile tool I could see sniffing making close to 100% CPU so I took a supout for support, rebooted, put in the latest unreleased 5.8 in the share subfolder and rebooted again.

Now testing with share 5.8 from the 12th.

Cheers.

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

Hi ...

I was running 5.7 on a RB433 + R52nM(PMP) + XR9(PTP) where the ETH is tied to an EOC1650 working as AP for 5 customers (sort of direct access with their laptops, tablets, etc). All natted, PMP & ETH have different IP ranges.

DHCP on ETH stop leasing from time to time (time seems equal to dhcp lease time, 24h in this case).

Was enough to wake it up back reboot the 1650 or disable / enable 433 eth (e.g. any change on ETH status).

Downgraded to 5.6 => no more problems.

I'm still having DNS problems. The service DNS seems to stop working. In tools > profile, seems right but the DNS cache list gets empty and stop caching and resolving host.

The only way to fix it is rebooting the RB1200.

sorry if this has already been discussed, but does anyone know why wireless signal drops almost 10db when upgrading from 4.2? I have a PtP link I upgraded today, was at -61db, using 2x2 Mimo with SR71-15 cards. Signals on BOTH chains -60/-61, after the upgrade all the way to 5.7, AND bios update, the signals are now -74/-76 , I've checked and all the wireless settings are the same, nothing changed other than firmware update. what's the deal??????????? I've had this happen on 4 different PtP links now. I'm only upgrading cause I want NV2, but why such the sacrifice in signal?

And what if you raise the tx power, does go back to normal?

pre-release version - tell MT support via e-mail what your issue is and they should give you the link

NV2 is TDMA not OFDM and is good for PtMP links where you have a lot of noise, but for PtP links without a lot of noise just use nstreme. It has more throughput and less latency.

Please check TDMA and OFDM with wikipedia.
NV2 is TDMA on top of OFDM and nv2 does not perform
better with noise. It performs better than nstreme where
there is no noice as it needs no polling. Instead it uses a
Map like wimax where the AP tells all CPEs at once when
to send. With noise I see 802.11 perform better then nstreme
and better then nv2.

Wrong. NV2 has WAY more throughput than Nstreme, on 3 links already, that were short distance, 2X2, I was only able to get a steady 216x240Mbps. Turning on NV2 now its a rock-solid 300x300Mbps, and I can push almost twice the throughput on bandwidth tests, up to 210Mbps. Your right about latency though...

OK, this is my field experience. I use RB711 so single chain only, on a tower with a lot of Radio and TV stations, some of them with Mega Watts of power so I guess its a pretty "noisy" place . The PtP link is with Signal levels around -60dB, Noise level -110 dB ??? as reported from RB711, 13km perfect LOS, ROS 4.17 to 5.5 all the same. Tested on various frequencies range from 5000 to 6000 MHz.
-with Nstreme: Initially link is OK, data rates 150/150Mbps, CCQ 90-100%, Bandwidth test shows around 100Mbits UDP. The problem comes when real traffic is passed, around 20-30Mbits of traffic, CCQ starts to drop below 50%, data rates also drop below 54Mbps, ping goes high and that's about it. No more than 30Mbits throughput.
-with NV2: Initially the same conditions as with Nstreme, data rates 135/135 Mbps. When real traffic is passed, CCQ also drops but stays around 60-70%, data rates 81/108 Mbps and around 60Mbits total throughput.

So NV2 performs better then Nstreme in this kind of "noisy" situation. The question is WHY?

When I applied diplexers on both sides, with 100MHz channel, so say only 5700-5800 MHz range is passed, everything else is heavily attenuated, the same link is now working with Nstreme with 90% CCQ, data rates 121/135Mbits, 80Mbps throughput. I haven't change anything, all the same, Routerboards, pigtails, antennas, cables only difference are applied filters.

I don't know, maybe I'm missing something here but that's the results from real traffic not UDP Bandwidth test.

One thing I have noticed, NV2 usually performs better on dual-chains, it seems running 2 chains creates some sort of self-interference with Nstreme, and sometimes I get worse data rates with 2 chains then single. However, activating NV2 makes 2 chains work together much better. My experience, single chain = Nstreme, Dual Chain = NV2.

I can confirm: as soon as you disable the interface used by dhcp-client, 'dhcp' process eats the whole CPU core until reboot

upd: after disabling dhcp-client, CPU goes down, just not momentarily

good morning everyone,


I own a 1100 with RB ros 5.7
The CPU is constantly at 100%, the profile indicates that the DHCP module is consuming 85%.

On the DHCP Client, it is installed but there is no interface added to it.

[xxxxx @ xxxxxx> ip dhcp-client print
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid
# INTERFACE ADDRESS USE ADD STATUS
[xxxxx @ xxxxxx]>


DHCP logs are common.

multiquote removed, making this post 75% more easier to read
According to Normis of Mikrotik:
"remember also that in v5.7 there is a DHCP server bug, where it causes high resource usage if it's on a disabled interface. this is fixed in v5.8"
Yup, enabling the disabled DHCP on a fully functioning vlan interface fixed it.

In my case, I have a RB in 1100 with 2 vlans DHCP and both are active.
Still, my CPU is constantly at 100% and in profile, the DHCP module is usndo 85% to 90% of the processing. :(

Well test the 5.8 pre-release already?

DO NOT USE these unless you are prepared somehow to fix your network quickly as these may even brick your device - neither I nor anyone takes responsibility of what happens if you use these test versions

I have put them on many routers except powerpc and so far all 5.8 test versions worked without major issues but I still can not guarantee that your network will be just fine.

These files change from time to time - I download regularly and compare CRC32. When uploaded to a router you also see the date the package was put together.

http://www.mikrotik.com/download/share/ ... 86-5.8.npk
http://www.mikrotik.com/download/share/ ... pc-5.8.npk
http://www.mikrotik.com/download/share/ ... be-5.8.npk
http://www.mikrotik.com/download/share/ ... le-5.8.npk

If you use User-Manager package DO NOT UPGRADE as you will need that package as well - ask support for 5.8 version of it for the platform(s) you use

If you notice any issues - get supout.rif from router and maybe a screenshot and send to support.

Mikrotik version 5.7 installed on this hardware:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2300
Motherboard: Asus P8H61 (Chipset Intel H61)
Network card: Intel PRO 1000GT Desktop Adapter
The system motherboard chipset is defined as "Unknown device", and the amount of traffic is limited to 200-210 Mbps.
If we use the following hardware:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
Motherboard: Asus P5KC (Chipset Intel P35)
Network card: Intel PRO 1000GT Desktop Adapter
The system chipset motherboard reports the correct
Productivity rises to the level of 290-300 Mbps, which in my case is the correct figure

Could be on the slower board the LAN card is connected to PCI bus and the faster - on PCI-e bus.

If you are running windows on the slower board - post a screenshot of Device Manager but viewed by Connection so we see to what the NIC/LAN card is connected.

Continue of ethernet flapping interface problem /sorry for copypasting the thread, have no time/ :

Same trouble with http://www.mikrotik.com/download/share/ ... be-5.8.npk, ethernet freezes after 1 day of work, downgrading ROS to 4.17 have solve this problem.

ROS 5.7, firmware v. 2.36. I Have the problem - RB435G at random times(it may be one hour or one day) freezes ethernet interfaces to pass ip traffic, interface at that time says that "link ok"(i use 1G connection with different devices at different places, ~8 BOARDS with PC and board-to-board connections, most time of all its freezes at 2 RB435g's with bridge functions- wireless interface bridged with ethernet, not matter with which - ether1 or ether2 or ether3), wireless interface at the same time work properly and i can access the board via wireless, after rebooting board its' all right for a random time. A guess i have similar problem with the same topics - http://bugs.mikrotik-routeros.com/view.php?id=15, viewtopic.php?f=1&t=55021&start=50, viewtopic.php?f=0&t=55021&p=282149&hilit=435G#p282149, viewtopic.php?f=3&t=55610 etc.

Only one solution is to turn off or on /interface Ethernet switch set 0 switch_all_ports=yes or no, after that routerboard starts to transmit data. But i don't use hardware switch for boards, no master or slave interfaces, only program switch for bridging Ethernet iface with wireless, Don't know exact what the problem is, power supply is good, cables is good(at first time we think that the cables cat5e was caused the problem for 1G connection, and than replaced them to cat7 cables - have the same issue).
A hope for some assistance, it's not suitable to downgrade software or firmware on boards to avoid similar problems with configuration - a can't to stop transmission through that link cause they are situated on commercial towers and it's not real to get the boards directly.
Anyone suggest?
My opinion - it's a firmware trouble of RB435G at a side of Ethernet sensitivity, may be i'm wrong.
I hope the MTIK team to help.
Thanks

What exactly is the other device, switch that is connected to the ports that stop working?

When problem happens, can you send supout to support?

I had similar issues as well, with RB250GS, RB450G (died), RB750 but with different software versions.

It's not matter what device connected on other side, in my case - PC with Intel Gb adapter, RB450G, or other RB435G board, but most of all it's freezes at a stack of 2 RB435G's - one time on first board, next time on second in random time.
I just forgot to send supout because i immediately had downgrade all RB's to 4.17 and enable nv2-wireless package. unfortunately, 4.17 does not achieve that speed throught wireless as 5.3 and higher versions of ROS ((.

1G connection seems to be work only on auto-negotiation.
Other thing - 433AH boards on 100M FD works fine at ROS 5.5 at the same tower, troubles probing only at 1G connections.
Any suggest?

Re: RouterOS v5.7 released

Wed Oct 26, 2011 10:21 pm

I want to signal a strange issue, not 100% that it is related to this firmware (i can not identify the exact moment in time when it happened, but it seems synchronized to the upgrade).

HW: Routerboard 450G, setup as NAT + PPPoE
I updated from 4.17 to 5.7 one month or so ago. And i saw a steep drop in performance and blamed it on the ISP (from 90Mb/s to 2.5Mb/s).
In the last days i tried to find the cause since my ISP stated it is all ok. Checking the direct link gave me 45Mb/s, so the provider had nothing to do with it.
When checking System -> Resources in Winbox, the CPU frequency got somehow set to 100MHz instead of 680MHz (i didn't do it on purpose since i didn;t know about that option :lol: ).
Changing the value back to 680MHz (System->Routerboard->Settings) gave me a peak NAT performance of 190Mb/s.

If someone complains of low speed, this parameter could be worth a look.

This exactly happened to me right yesterday with rOS v5.6 on 450G.
I checked Interfaces IP addresses and routes, all seemed OK. DHCP server on the router wasn't answering either.
I generated a supout before rebooting unit, I'll send it to support.

exactly that - you will be able to receive prefix using '/ip dhcp-client' that is in "secret 5.8" already.

Is it correct that I cannot do DHCPv6 and Radius?

Did someone say that it couldn't be done? The DHCP Server (4 and 6) has a checkbox for "USE RADIUS". Also, the Radius config window allows you to enter an IPv4 or an IPv6 address for a remote radius sever.

I now, and I've seen that. But I do not see any requests on Radius when doing DHCPv6. So it might not be implemented yet.
