CRS317 10G -> 1G traffic slow, everything else fine

Wed Dec 20, 2017 11:37 am

Traffic from 10Gbit machines to other 10Gbit machines is fine - gets ~9Gbit.
Traffic from 1Gbit machines to other 1Gbit machines is fine - gets ~950mbit.
Traffic from 1Gbit machines to 10Gbit machines is fine - gets ~950mbit.
But...
Traffic from 10Gbit machines to 1Gbit machines has a very high retry count and sits at about 150mbit.

Currently I've got all the 1Gbit machines on a separate subnet and the CRS317 is routing them to the 10G machines - and this is faster, at ~950mbit.

Happens on RouterOS or SwOS - and I've tried the latest RouterOS (6.41rc66) and 6.40.5, both have the issue. SwOS shows the issue too - the 2.3p it ships with I can't get to work, but 2.6 has the issue too. I've also tried with the 1G side being on a SFP-RJ45 converter, the 1G side being 1000BaseLX and the front panel gigabit port. All still do the same thing.

I've looked around and I see a similar thread here with issues on the CSS326.
In the changelogs I also see:
*) crs326 - fixed packet processing speed on switch chip if individual port link speed differs;
*) crs326 - improved transmit performance from SFP+ to Ethernet ports;
I'm wondering if the CRS317 has a related issue, because that sounds like what I see...

iperf3 example is below. 172.16.1.20 is a 10Gbit server, 172.16.1.19 is a 1Gbit machine.

That's a known problem.

RouterOS 6.41rc66 and the upcoming SwOS 2.7 do not fix it on my CRS326/CSS326.
You can downgrade to SwOS 2.3 or 2.4. This will restore performance but might put your router into an endless reboot loop if SFP+ is inserted at boot.

wtf waiting 2 months still
performance in 6.41 still not fixed on crs317 + tons of bugs
no fix 10gbit sfp tx rx redings
no fix PSU reading...

I can not confirm that. Read speed went up from 25MByte/s to around 50MByte/s with 6.42rc* but it's still far away from 1GBit/s.
Write speed is at full speed.

SFP+RJ10 still reports up/down link state without a cable connected.

same issue here, here is my setup

ccr1036 to crs317 --> crs317 to Crs212 10s 1s+

crs317 is slow download for my customers that have a 1g sfp, so i had no choice to 10g trunk into a crs212 10s 1s+

the crs212 needs reboots every few weeks and the 317 does not have good download speeds on 1g sfp, ( download speed very slow for the customers)

so basically i have 9 customers that have a 1gig fiber and i have no reliable way of servicing them because the 212 always needs reboots, ive replaced it 3 times and same issue, and the 317 has an issue with traffic going from sfp+ to sfp 1g ( Slow )

If this dowsnt get fixed im going to have to start looking for alternative solutions other than mikrotik.

Have not such devices yet, however interested by any findings.
Have you tried using RED queues https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Queue#RED ?
Good resource for common problems listed here: https://fasterdata.es.net/network-tunin ... ze-issues/

SFP+RJ10 still reports up/down link state without a cable connected.
Hi I have 2 S+RJ10 on css326, they are connected to a NAS and a workstation. these 2 modules seems extremely unstable. They disconnects all the time, avg once a day. I found it in my workstation log. and sometimes the NIC says it's connected, but no data sent/received. the cable is CAT6A. and I have put an fan besides the 2 modules inside the switch.

do you experience the similar issue?
