Comments on 6.0b1

Sat Apr 14, 2012 8:46 pm

There were no packaged NPK files for 6.0b1 but I copied up all the individual files that were on my router (system -> packages).

Rebooted and ran a speed test. Looks great at 75 down / 5 up to my ISP. (I'm paying for 20 down / 2 up).

Wireless bridge to a 5.14 router works just fine. The new quickset graphs on the web page and on winbox are really handy.

We'll see how it runs after a few days. Anyone else have any comments?


edit: I went ahead and upgraded the other wireless without any issue.

It works great so far.
Resource usage is WAY down in comparison to V4 and V5 flavours.

The issue where the RB751U-2HnD will not reboot without freezing during startup seems to still exist in 6.0b1

Other than that, new ROS seems great, I like the Quick Set feature. I don't have any queues setup at the moment so I can't comment on any increase in performance there.

One thing that I am curious about is why 2.6.38 was chosen as the next kernel version. 2.6.32 was likely chosen because it was considered a "Long Term Support" release. I don't think the kernel guys do LTS anymore, so I am curious how one version was chosen over another.

changed pcq-rate of active queue... all queue tree hung: avg-rate freezed on the last value, no packets were processed by queues (i.e., no limiting). rebooting the router helped :)
