RB750Gr3 througput

Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:37 pm

I'm interrested to buy the hex RB750Gr3. But i have a question.

I have a 500/500 fiber connection and I want to use the hex as replacement for my fritzbox. This is what I want the mikrotik to do:

NAT
OSPF or static routing
Port forwarding
Iptv
Vlan tagging

And that's about it.

Will this device be capable to handle my 500/500 connection? Probably won't do 100% line filling but would be great if it could.

Thanks

It will depend on how many special features you enable, and if Fasttrack can be used with them.
Once Fasttrack cannot be globally active, it will depend on your effort to selectively use Fasttrack
on the part of the traffic that is compatible with it.
When you are looking for a router that can handle that kind of traffic without effort, check the CCR1009
and maybe the new RB1100AHx4 or the RB3011.

I've read that 500mbit should not be an issue if you use it like an standard ISP modem like the fritzbox.

I am not going to do all kind of crazy stuff I just want routing options through ospf or static routes.
For everything else it's going to be the same as a standard household router/modem. So PPPoE, NAT, a few port forwards.

My asus ac66u could handle 500mbit like it was nothing (bit overreaction :) ). And I think the Asus is significantly slower than this RB750Gr3.
If i did an apple vs oranges comparison my apologies.

I've ordered it and will test it out. It's not that my connection is on 100% load all the time. I just don't want to hook it up do a speedtest and get arount 100 - 150 mbit.

The only thing that I would be a bit concerned about is the IPTV part. This means traffic prioritisation and performance in this will depend hugely on what rules you use to classify traffic. Otherwise, 500 Mbps should be no problem. I have seen the RB951G-2HnD (which is significantly less powerful than the RB750Gr3) NATting at 1Gbps line speed (with fast track enabled, that is). But if you do mangle (say, to prioritise traffic), you will have to refrain from using fast track and this will have a significant impact on performance.

EoIP single tunnel throughput: ~380Mbit/s with EoIP MTU 1500 and 20 concurrent TCP connections.

It should be OK for general purpose use, and even for some specific purposes that it really shines at (like accelerated encryption).
You only need to be careful that you do not use some feature that creates a lot of overhead on all processed packets.
It is a wonderful router but of course you should not expect miracles at this price point.
