Re: 10 Equipment RB435G presenting the same problem.

Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:45 pm

My observations show that this thing happens ONLY when ethernet interface sends allot of traffic(80-150Mbps). If that same ethernet ONLY receives that same traffic there is no problem.
Like this:
siteA--(RB435G_A)----wireless----(RB435G_B)--siteB
one way real world traffic (the other way is through another link with RB600A and have never developped that problem):
if siteA sends to sideB only RB435G_B have that problem 2 to 5 times per day;
if siteB sends to sideA only RB435G_A have that problem 2 to 5 times per day;

Reboot is one way to solve it , the other is to toggle the state of "switch-all-ports" to yes/no (in interface ethernet switch)

So I suppose it has something to do with some TX counters overflow and something with that switch chip in RB435G which is not present in RB600A.

Hope this gives someone a clue :D

I'm having same/similar problems.

Only a reboot fixes the problem. Also noticed is that when counters are cleared on the interface even though there's TX packets going No RX packets. The counters do not increase..

Any idea on the resolution of this Mikrotik ? Love the product this right now is beating us up. We have over 11 PTP links running 5.11 all which have experienced the loss of connectivity on the ethernet side of the remote radio.

I am returning the 10 435g. And I'm buying the RB800 because they do not have the same problem. Possibly it may be a lot that came with this defect.

we are having the same ethernet freze on rb435g.

When the eth frezzes we can access the rb by wireless interface and the freezed eth is reported connected but no traffic goes through.

Enabling conncetion tracking seems to reduce the freeze issue from some hours to some days but it is not a real fix.

Using 5.13 the gbit eth of the rb435, using the MT gbit poe and 13v power, flaps once each two days.

Using 5.14 the gbit in the same identical condition freeze, causing a lot of troubles.
Someone wrote that 5.14 fixed the flap issue on rb750g so i think there is something new about the eths. But it doesn't fix the rb435g eth issue.

Any update on the resolution of the ticket: [Ticket#2012022166000249] ??????

Thanks

Re: 10 Equipment RB435G presenting the same problem.

Tue Feb 28, 2012 8:43 am

we probably find the cause of port flap/freezing on rb435g.

It seems to be ralted to snmp high usage or the cpu usage snmp is causing on havy traffic load.

Infact we noted the the big part of the port flap issue were reported during snmp polling.
So yesterday evening we disable the snmp and also disabled the connection tracking, to let the issue happen, more frequently.

Since we disabled snmp we didn’t get any port flap or freeze. They are only 12 hours but anught to let you know our experience.

hope this can help to find and fix the issue.

I have same problem with all routerboards with gigabit ethernet ports (RB711G-5HnD, RB435G, RB433GL etc.). I tryed more of firmwares. The firmware 5.5 is the most "stable".

We just bought our first pair of 435G boards and they're both doing this! Both of them are powered and connected via the MT gigE PoE injector. One of them plugs into an RB250GS, but the other into a Soekris router. The switch-all-ports toggle does bring it back to life as reported elsewhere, but obviously this is a crazy fix.

I guess we'll be RMA'ing until we get a stable one, or MikroTik give us a solid response about this problem.

We use SNMPv1.

OIDs we poll are:

IF-MIB::ifInOctets.X
IF-MIB::ifInUcastPkts.X
IF-MIB::ifInNUcastPkts.X
IF-MIB::ifOutOctets.X
IF-MIB::ifOutUcastPkts.X
IF-MIB::ifOutNUcastPkts.X
1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.1.1.4.X
1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.2.1.3.Y.X
1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.2.1.4.Y.X

1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.2.1.7.Y.X
1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.2.1.8.Y.X
1.3.6.1.4.1.14988.1.1.1.2.1.9.Y.X
hrProcessorLoad.1
enterprises.14988.1.1.3.8.0
enterprises.14988.1.1.3.10.0
hrStorageDescr (walked)
hrStorageSize.Z
hrStorageUsed.Z

In above, X is the interface ID - either an ethernet interface, or a wlan interface, or both in some cases.
Y is a station MAC address.
Z is a storage ID - only the main memory ID which we discover from walking hrStorageDescr.

Some of the above OIDs are net-snmp specific abbreviations. Hope that's OK... I'll resolve them to numeric OIDs if you need.

And in both 435Gs we have only one wlan card installed and active - Ubiquiti SR71-15.

Not sure about you, but I enabled a netwatch script to toggle the switch-all-ports option if the ethernet interface died, and just having the netwatch running has prevented the interface from going dead on both my 435Gs (script hasn't fired once). Go figure. If it remains stable for a few more days, I'm going to try disable the netwatch to see what happens.

We also bought a large number of RB435g, and almost all the time 3-7 days stuck and have to constantly restart!
If you hang the device only works WAN does not work LAN,
disabled almost all the functions SNMP, Tracking,
Each has a 435 to 10 client devices!

All I can say is, those who are still experiencing it, please help MT debug it with remote access to your equipment. Our boards haven't frozen for over a week now, and we haven't really changed much. As a result, they feel like ticking time bombs, but the problem is impossible to debug like this...

Hi,
we had report this issue to MT support in December: Ticket#2011120566000486

We had two RB435G used for our main backbone (200 Mbps link). The link stop to work almost every days, as it's been always more than 50 Mbps going throught it ... The only way to get the link back to normal state is to disable/enable switch-all-port feature or by reboot the RB435G.

I had granted access to their developper recently (last week) but still got no news. I think it could help if at least someone from MT could tell us:

1. If they found the problem
2. If it depend on linux kernel or driver, or is it a routeros issue.
3. If they got an idea of how to fix it and how many time it will take to fix it (day,week, month, year :).

We suffer much by waiting without any news, and let me say you that our customer suffer too... If the problem is too hard too resolve quickly, please tell us and we will take action to resolve it by replacing these board by another without switch chip (RB711GA-5HnD).

Regards,
Michael

:(
Running 5.15 for 2 weeks and that ethernet lockup is still present. About once a day.
:(
And I doubt 5.16 will make any change.

10 Equipment RB435G presenting the same problem.

Fri May 11, 2012 5:55 pm

I too have some outages of ethernet in rb1200. Router itself remains up but I cannot access it by any means for a while. Unfortunately while I'm going to investigate with a laptop it resumes normal operation. Any ideas how to check what's wrong?

So, 5.17 and rb435g and ethernet lockup is still there. :(

Hi,
just to let you know I solved my problem.

Here is our setup:

site1 <---> RB493AH <---> RB435G <---> over wireless NV2 <---> RB435G <---> RB450G <---> site2

On RB493AH (ROS 5.7 and FW 2.20) and RB450G (ROS 5.14 FW 2.39) all port are in a bridge interface.
On both RB435G (ROS 5.14 FW 2.39) wlan1 and ether1 are in a bridge interface.
No other special setup.
As describe previously, after a random time, data stop to passthrough ethernet between RB435G and RB450G and some time between RB493AH and RB435G. As describe previously, problem seems to be an issue with the switch chip as playing with the switch-all-port parameter let the traffic go through the ethernet port again.

To fix this issue, if you don't need to ethernet switch-all-port:
- put the setting to no;
- pay attention to the ethernet synchronisation as sometime it fallback to half duplex;
- if so, force ethernet speed/duplex re-negotiation;
- enjoy the uptime of your ethernet link...

No more ethernet flap since may 29 2012, but I had to mention that the port on site 2 had negotiate 100 Mbps FD instead of 1Gbps FD ?! We will verify a second time lightning (gigabit one), POE (gigabit one) and CAT6 cable to be sure and let you know about all developpement.

Probably this not related to the same issue.
1.What is the purpose of this router ?
2.Do it have public IP ?
3.Any firewall ?
4.All ethernet ports going down at the same time ?

Did you have something mentioned about half duplex in the log, because I have never seen a line stating that in mine.
It is always "interface,info ether3 link up (speed 1000M, full duplex)"

If you don't then everything is good. sometime it fallback to half duplex when you remove the switch-all-port option. But if not then everything is fine, enjoy !

For me, it's now 20 days without suffering port flapping...

@digicomtech
your method (switch-all-port=no) doesn't work for me, I'm sure the ethernet is not on half duplex and it still freezes 1-3 times per day. I have tested it couple of days with no luck :( .

So I'm interested if this works for someone else with rb435g ?

Setting switch-all-port=no works on about 90% of the 60+ RB435G boards I have in my back haul network. We have noticed that it is only an issue if 10mbps+ bandwidth is being pushed through. The boards that this setting did not fix have been switched to RB800 boards, with which we have never had an issue.

My observations show that this thing happens ONLY when ethernet interface sends allot of traffic(80-150Mbps). If that same ethernet ONLY receives that same traffic there is no problem.
Like this:
siteA--(RB435G_A)----wireless----(RB435G_B)--siteB
one way real world traffic (the other way is through another link with RB600A and have never developped that problem):
if siteA sends to sideB only RB435G_B have that problem 2 to 5 times per day;
if siteB sends to sideA only RB435G_A have that problem 2 to 5 times per day;

Reboot is one way to solve it , the other is to toggle the state of "switch-all-ports" to yes/no (in interface ethernet switch)

So I suppose it has something to do with some TX counters overflow and something with that switch chip in RB435G which is not present in RB600A.

Hope this gives someone a clue :D
I think you're right. We suffer from a DDOS attack on a client at the remote end of our bridge setup and the ethernet stop to pass the data when packet per second reach a too high value.
Maybe, you should graph you packet per second on the RB435G ethernet port.

Michael

If you watch the spec of both board you will notice that the maximum packet per second that can hold a RB800 is significately higher than an RB435G. Maybe, you got a lot of small packet that the RB435G failed to handle...

Michael
