Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Mon Jul 22, 2013 2:52 pm

I have to disable 500M/500M Up/Down simple queue on our Ros 6.1 CCR1036 12G-4S. Average load is 150Mbit with 100000 packets voice clients started to complain about drops and jitter i tried large queues small quese nothing has helped. Enabling and disabling queues causes high cpu load and packet losses. Any ideas or fixeses?

I have 6 CCRs and we are using those routers for PPPoE server. I have a plan to enable BGP on that routers. Anyone tried to use BGP with Cisco using v6.2, please share your experience here. Thanks.

We run several sessions between our CCRs and some Ciscos and even a session to a Brocade CER. No Problems so far...
The only negative thing I can say about BGP on the CCR is that it runs only on one core, which makes it quite slow. But if you don't have to load the whole Internet Routing table on every Session, you'll be OK.

Hi Normis,

the problems seems not be the responsivness, but the capacity to handle the packets under some attack, like the icmp by hping3.
We don't care if it is responsive but unable to pass traffic.

Normis, do you have any idea when all aspects of ROS will be optimized for the Tilera Chipset? We keep trying it and different parts fail. Right now the issue is throughput on a hotspot when we get above about 400 users. We have X86 devices that can do 3 times the number of users and bandwidth.

A few months I can not deal with such a problem. In version 5, this was not. In 6.0 and 6.1 by connecting some users, a connection error does not issue, but internet does not work. It creates a dynamic connection, but it is not running. This is a problem with the version?
Noticed that this happens when the ccr not reboot more than a few days. Interfaces and ppp in winbox beginning to slow and long open and just at that momet these glitches occur.

I would like to report a problem that has been occurring in the CCR:

When working with IP + MAC interface and the option of customers ARP = reply-only after restarting the CCR band travels not normal.
It is as if the traffic is limited.
If after the restart put ARP = enable and then ARP = reply-only interface the traffic back to normal consumption.

I have 3x CCR1036-12G-4S's and one of them has been rebooting non stop. 1 of them is on firmware 3.05 with RouterOS being v6.1, another is on v6.0 RC14 and on firmware version 3.05. The one that was rebooting was on v6.1 with firmware version 3.08. I updated it to version 3.09 and the reboots seem to have stopped.

Has anyone else run into this? I noticed some others complaining about reboots but no one had come out and said it was fixed etc. I had seen the SNMP disable etc, but I tried that and it was still rebooting.

Another one issue regarding ping losses.
Equipment: CCR1036-12G-4S
Tested on: 6.1
Ports: Full Duplex, 1Gbs
Scheme: Mikrotik is transparent, no any configuration in Firewall and Queues.
sfp1 and sfp2 are in bridge mode. sfp1 is connected to CSN (WAN) sfp2 is connected to LAN.
Traffic load: avarage for DL 400Mb/s, for UL 100Mb/s
Avarage users: 4500
CPU load: max 15%
RxTx errors and drops: 0

The problem is when connecting CSN to LAN without Mikrotik no any ping losses to users and from them. But when connect Mikrotik between CSN and LAN
each 3-4 pings you get 1-2 ping losses to each user and traffic decreases.
Changing optical fiber, optical ports and modules, changing from optical to electrical ports didn't get any results.
We have the same Situation Wan=SFP und internal=SFP in ad Bridge. (ROS6.2 would like to use as shaping device)
We discoverd the same failure. If you oing through the device pings (packets) get lost.

Now we disabled SNMP and it becomes better.
Also we set connection tracking from auto to on.

snmp off.
I sent a support mikrotik supout files and screenshots.
I use to build Jul/17/2013. In the tech support told me that I updated to the last. What is the point? In order to reproduce the situation need to wait for about 8 days. And in the 8 days still come out new builds. A support will continue to say that I have not the latest build :)

I posted this in another thread and I don't want to repeat it here. Not sure if it should have gone under this thread for CCR, but...

Here is the link: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=75259

Basically, I changed CCR MTU size and it caused kernel panic and rebooted. Want to make sure its looked into.

Thanks,
Scott

Thank you for advise. I cheked SNMP is off. I changed connection tracking to yes and aftre tests I'll confirm whether problem is solved or not.
One question regarding Shaping. Did you try Upload and Download simultaneously. For ex. if in queue tree Max 2M for DL and Max 2M UL for 1 user does this user get 2M for DL and 2M for UL simultaneously ?

Hi,
Is it normal that In ressources IRQ, the fancon is generating about 1100 irq per second ?

6.0RC8 25/1/2012
Wondering same situation with 6.1. That looks like some trouble.. first cpu load 5-9% without network traffic.

Is this normal?

bulid is from 16th July 13:48

We have real internet traffic peak arroud 160 mbit with 438 simple queuss on it.
Bridge settings use IP firewall on
If a user has 10M down and 1M up and 1M up is full the user is gettin only arround 8.5-9Mbit down.
But it seems with high load 140-160mbit some packages on bridge ar lost.

mishaM,
May be it's simply "DNS Amplification Attack", as I saw on my RB751U-2HnD.
Eating memory, process dns eating CPU, many DNS queries in DNS cache (my case was xcqv.de from 178.100.10[0123].*)
I've switched off IP -> DNS -> Allow Remote Requests, and no memory leaks / CPU overloads any more :)

There have been a lot of +1's for multicore BGP and I do agree....

I would really like to know when/if there is going to be an update where doing a /ip route print does not rely on the CLI and a whole core to view routes.

We have a pair of 1016's in production at the moment and diagnosing a route inside a BGP enabled RB that has static/policy/bgp(2feeds) is almost impossible with the current operation of the command.

Thoughts?

Affect the performance of the BGP. To work BGP allocated one core. The routing table updates slowly.
I still recommend you to try to get to CCR 2 FullView-table and look at the load on the cores and the speed of routing updates.

It was mentioned in several topics already.

Yes, you will get slow route updates.
Yes, route print will be slow.
No, it does not affect overall forwarding performance.
Yes, we are working on new routing implementation which will work much faster.

I can confirm this, BGP is really slow at startup, i get over one Uplink 450k Prefixes and it takes 2-3 Minutes before
its complete and the Router is completly ready. There is no Speed Limit in deliver the Prefix Updates in the Uplink, its
only MikroTiK they work with a single core...

Performance! MikroTik RouterOS like ordinary of all the V6 router. Outdoor cabinet temperature range -20 degrees to 60 degrees with a version that would be great in the tower foundation. :D :D :D

CCR1036-12-4S disappoint their instability.
1 router - 300 IPoE, 1 BGP FullView uplink, 3 BGP peers, about 30 EoIP links, 1GBit/s aggregated traffic - 30 % CPU, stable, all good
2 router - 1100 PPPoE sessions, 700 mbit/sec aggregated, 80000 pps . Sometimes (5-6% of connections) forget routes to client IP - client haven't internet access, no traffic in pppoe-interface. 25 % CPU without connection-tracking, with connection-tracking -100% load and hard packet loss.
3 router - 800 PPPoE sessions, 400 mbit/sec - 40% CPU, very unstable SNMP (screenshot in attach), empty in interface and queue list.

Аlas, CCR1036-12-4S does not meet the manufacturer's claims.

I have had snmp disabled on my bgp routers for years because of slowness, It seems SNMP is a huge stack but most people only want interface and processing statistics. What would be nice is a SNMP-compact package that has just that.

Normis. Making a query to search for a prefixe that take more than 2 or 3 mins is not acceptable

For network engineer is a day to day task. When you have to solve a routing issue with ccr it is a pitty

On my old cisco these tasks are in real time.

Looks like product naming gives lots of specs:

CCR10<ab>-<c>G-<d>S

<ab> - number of cores
<c> - number of Gigabit Ethernets
<d> - number of SFP cages

-BU -board unit (without Rackmount case), for installations in your own boxes :shock:

Try to change the cable into a different port. (eth1 -> eth2).
Just make sure that you have a registered IP address from the subnet mikrotik.
I think your problem is not related to ROS 6.2

Hi all,
we have some strange issue with CCR-1036-12G-4S, every time we turn on cold device (after 15 mins and more of powerless state) it gets stuck forever on "loading kernel from nand" notice shown on embedded display. When I then (after "heating the device" with kernel stuck) reconnect power cable it boots normally. Any ideas?
This happenned in 6.1 and 6.2 the same.

Thanks

Hi. I'm planning the change HP ML 150 Quad Xeon 1.6 Ghz which runs many pppoe servers + htb.
I'm thinking about buying MikroTik Cloud Core Router CCR1016-12G.

The question is:
- does the MikroTik Cloud Core Router CCR1016-12G share CPU load to all available cores, when using many pppoe servers at many interfaces/vlans ?
- does it share the load to all cores when keeping traffic from all PPPOE sessions?
- does it share cpu load to all cores, when using simple queue?

Best regards.

Have tested 6.3 29/08/2013 12:06 Build on CCR1036

I see a gain in BGP loading prefix. Now I have loaded 458000 prefixes in 50 secondes... much better

still on one core but better performances.

good job.

I have a CCR1036 and want to swap it out with my 1100AHx2. With 6.3, is it ready for live production with BGP, OSPF and some rate-limiting queues? Backhaul bandwidth is around 300MB. Just wondering if anyone is using this as a core router with a similar setup? If not, I can wait a few revisions for the software to stabilize.

As CCR SW is not paralellized I guess the 1100AHx2 is faster for the moment.

actually some important parts are parallelized. You can get a lot more throughput that with RB1100AHx2

Can you expand on what is? Also curious to how the router, on 6.3, is now carrying load over the cores.

Reason I ask is that during the RCs, you were just getting the OS stable on CCR, core improvement was going to come later. Just wondering where that is now, and when we will realize the full potential of this router.

Cheers.

what is your tcp performance problem? I am having a problem; when I run a single connection tcp bandwidth test out the wan/fiber port I get 5M download and 60M upload. if I run udp I get 90M each way. Its either the router or the upstream provider. I am leaning toward router; on version 6.2.

This is the same Problem like yours! UDP works as hell, i can get nearby 1GBit over but TCP sucks. Still no fix from MikroTiK. The last what i got was:
Hello,

I have tried to test bandwidth-test by running it to your specified address and my
results and speeds were very different from ones that are visible in picture that
you sent (they were all right).

Most interesting thing is that while I was typing this message, I tried to run
test again and it was running exactly how picture shows it.

I also looked through your configuration and seems that there is nothing that
could block this traffic.

I suppose there is something that blocks this traffic. Could you try to run test
and if speed is slow then reboot it and test again?

Also you could try to install RouterOS version 6.3 and that maybe could fix the
issue. RouterOS is accessible at www.mikrotik.com.

Regards,
Martins
Yes, i made an Upgrade to 6.3 and 6.3 but this is occours always...

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Come on guys, this is said 1000 times before! NEVER do a TCP test on a router, only THROUGH a router.
The CPU in 99% of the routers is not fast enough to do all the tasks necessary for a TCP test.
If you want to do a decent TCP test, use a PC on both sides of the device or link you want to test and run IPerf between those PCs.

I have tested a chain of 5 Mikrotik devices using this method, including RB600A, RB450G, RB1100x2 and x86 180-200 mbit/s TCP.
One of the links between these devices is a NV2 wireless link.

Im own a 100 MBit Home ADSL, and there is no Reason why i only get 3-4 MBit TCP but
nearby 1 GBit UDP (Even i connect in DC directly).

hi thanks for assuming we are idiots. yes I have tested from the router and through the router and everywhere. when I run the speed test the cpu does not go above 10% for a one tcp connection count test. I am running from a ccr to a x86 mikrotik machine. links are negotiating at full duplex. it is a problem with the ccr fiber interface I think.

Aren't you maxing out 1 core of the CCR when running a TCP test?

Nope, there is no huge load, not more as 4-6% per Core. BGP uses btw always 100%, but this is just Wayne, because
RouterOS did it since im started using BGP...

You have to understand that initiating/sending/receiving TCP traffic is MUCH MUCH more demanding for the CPU than just routing that same traffic.

Guys, after i played around with Downgrade to 6.1 and some queues, i found a way to fix it...

Interface ethernet full duplex = no and speed to 100Mbps. Its unbeliveable!

With Fullduplex = NO and 100 Mbps!

What for do you need sfp+ in this crap? You want route 10 Gbps with CCR? Are you serious? I wonder if it can just forward so much bandwidth without any routing, firewall or queues. No chance to make any use with sfp+ in any routing purposes.

I have idea. Make old CCR to work good and then think about making new hardware. My CCR's are almost year old and they still are useless. Great thanks to Mikrotik for selling "beta" hardware with "beta" software as a "operator class router". Lol. You didn't see any real operator class router if you are willing to name this board like that.

"real operator class router" costs 10-20 times more. For me, CCR delivers good enough performance. Especially considering it's cost.

CCR1036 concurrent PPPOE supported

Tue Sep 24, 2013 11:44 am

hello . I have a question . What is the total number of concurrent users ( PPPOE ) in CCR1036 router?
If 4000 users simultaneously connected to router With PPPOE connection, the router will not be interrupted?

thank you.

Please test it, if its the same Result like my Setup, we found a critical Bug, and we should report it to MikroTiK.
After i saw a lot of this Threads, its not a new Bug.

Hello,
What for do you need sfp+ in this crap?

Why this should be named crap? Because you are not having the need of SFP+?
You want route 10 Gbps with CCR? Are you serious?
It is in my opinion a better thing to have one 10 GBit/s uplink from the router
to the DMZ Switch and another one to the LAN Switch, even better then setting up LAGs (LACP).
I wonder if it can just forward so much bandwidth without any routing, firewall or queues.
No chance to make any use with sfp+ in any routing purposes.
Other Routers with SFP & LAG (LACP) capabilities are in the same price range.
I have idea. Make old CCR to work good and then think about making new hardware.
It is the same Hardware only with another port allocation.
Kindly regards

I hear what you say, but I don't understand the problem. If you pay for a Toyota or Audi, you get what you pay for. The same goes if you buy a Tata, Chana or other whatever little car. Don't expect the same reliability, safety or performance. If you expect it, laughs are on you, don't care how its marketed by the manufacturer.

Carrier IMO mean things like 5 nines uptime, etc(think IOS-XR, where you can upgrade the software without rebooting). Mikrotik is good for budget links, but its not for a core network. I'll continue to use Mikrotik for outlying links, there is nothing in its class that beats it there.

I have used the CCR, one of our clients has one he brought himself. It works for him, but then again, it only does around 70mbps peak and does basic routing. It only crashed once(I think) and he is happy. So whatever floats your boat.

If CCR finally will work like it was intended then i'll say "it's cheap, it's fast, it's reliable". But many months past and i still don't know when or even if ever i'll use it because there is no official "road map" to make it usable. I've gave 1600 USD for "routers" that are beated by Raspberry PI in DNS forwarder performance.

But despite of that, CCR was sold to me with beta operating system as a "operator class router", they should be giving those for testing first, not making money on not tested hardware with buggy software. Sure i'm not stupid to place it in my core network, for routing purposes i have ASR 9006 for that. But i'm angry that Mikrotik is making fool of people. And i have to shine with my eyes in front of my boss, asking me why this hardware is making absolutly nothing. How many months or years i have to wait untill this flawless performance will be usable?

CCRs work here flawlessly for weeks serving around 900 pppoe users each. Surely there are problems with the software, but they are not global and happen only in certain configurations (e.g. I discovered a problem with PCQ and had to use dynamic simple queues).

For all those complaining about the production grade of this router. This is still pre-production grade piece of kit. It's never been sold otherwise. If your distributor told you otherwise, take it up with them not Mikrotik who made this fact very clear.

If you look bad in front of your bosses or companies, its because you promised the world without checking your promises. Let's not forget that routers with this many cores at this price is new ground to even long standing established vendors. Juniper for example have had serious issues with the last 2 years of software.

Sooo, you bought a experimental piece of kit. You want to put pre-production in production, great. Have at it. You might get lucky, but its your ass.


PS: Can anyone confirm the /tool/profile cpu load of BGP?

there was no word in product specification about "pre-production hardware". It was sold as a fully functional hardware, no word even about beta software.

I think it was! But that dosen´t matter at all I think, MikroTik was hiring over the last 2 years 20 new employees
so that we could imagine that the work on the CCR is going on and at one day we will have a shining device!
If you can´t wait or as you was mention by your self, preventing your ass away from your boss, I would sell
the CCR, so your boss have not a so high of cost mistakes made by yours! Perhaps for $1200 selling as used
CCR, but hey if in some month this will be a rocket machine don´t speak to me about this point please!

6.3 is pretty solid on the CCR for us anyway. We have been using it in production since RC7, then RC13, then 6.3 (since December 30th 2012)

We only have one 100mbit uplink, about 20 queues, lots of firewall rules for about 10 different subnets.

Same here.
CCR with OSPF,MPLS,VPLS and TE.
RouterOS v6.4 all physical ports flap after 9 minutes. A few seconds later they come back and after another 9 minutes the same situation.
Made a ticket [Ticket#2013092466000274] about CCR Port flapping.

Installed RouterOS 6.5RC1 and this flapping doesn´t occur again up to now. But in the changelog for 6.5RC1 nothing is mentioned about this.

I hope this bug is resolved.

Dear Normis.!

Multicast routing (PIM-SM) same source to different interface still doesn't work in CCR1036.

Ticket#2013020566000411

The device cannot be used for multicast routing since available.
So we can not use in IPTV environment.
Please fix this bug!

Sincerely,

Have test hotspot installation with 1036 as hotspot and 27 AP (SxT-G2HnD).
Work fine, 70-150 online users (more than 4k in radius database) with simple queues.
CPU usage less than 1-2%, peak traffic 30Mbit.

Wireless clients is mobile devices - handies, laptops, pads etc.

Seems cookie table cannot contain more than 4096 entries, but may be no.

I remain astonished that Mikrotik are *still* pumping out more and more hardware revisions instead of making the kit they have work properly, but I guess otherwise they would have hardware guys sat around with nothing to do.

The SFP+ unit would definitely be interesting and disruptive.. if you could rely on it being useful. I'll check back in another year, again.

RouterOS v6.5 is taking a bit longer to get here and I'm hoping for a more formal release. They rushed the v6 series IMHO.

Hello

In my case I'm using the ports ether1 and ether6. After a few minutes of operation, the port ether1 link flaps. I went back to the old 1100AHx2 and the problem doesn't happen.

It's impossible to use.

Wonderful to hear you think you have a fix for this.

Can you please detail some info about what data triggers the lockup? we got no feedback from our ticket nor any updates and we want to test in the lab before we return these to production. If you can confirm what data triggers it (we were unable to isolate any in particular) then we will generate that traffic to confirm we are freed from it.

We also had the flapping problem (only one eth was 'safe'). We solved it avoiding ethernet11 usage on a bridge (eoip<->eth) using sfp2 instead for that bridge (eoip<->sfp2). OSPF enabled in this ccr.

Also had another 'flapper' ccr which stopped magically flapping (or maybe due to MPLS package disabling) whick only used 3 eth devices. OSPF and BGP enabled on this ccr. No bridges.

Hi All.
I have CCR with 6.1 that had rebooted by watchdog.
What version should I upgrade? Flapping port 6.5


Thanks.

Is the device still classed as a pre-production device and should not be used in production?

I want to run two of them with VRRP and each of them will have a full BGP-feed and in the future I would probably also add another transit to one of the routers.

Anyone doing this with the CCR?

How's the SFP+ device working?

Normis,

may you update all of us about port flap issue on CCR?????

regards
Ros
Do you mean the situation where a specific type of data triggers one time port up/down? You should try v6.6rc1

Hi Normis,
we tested this morning 6.6rc1 and the router started to reboot as soon as the traffic goes through (without making supout).
May be something about vrrp interfaces.

I sent the config that let the router to reboot as update about ticket#2013090666000521

please update when it is going to be fixed.
regards
Ros

From our experience it seems the port flap issue is specific to the CCR1016 our 1036's seem to be fine.

Is this your experience ?

nop,
we have it on ccr1036.

From direct statement of Janis: it is related to a particular combination of cpu usage and traffic.

so it is more common on 1016, due to a easier high cpu usage, but not restricted to it.

I'm also experiencing the port flapping issue on the CCR1016.

In my case the traffic never goes over 60Mbps and the total cpu usage is never over 5%.

My setup consist of mangle rules, some filter rules and pcq's for traffic shaping. I'm using a bridge between two interfaces, one facing the lan and the other the wan.

Everything else which is not needed is disabled in the packages and the other services (SNMP, BT Server etc.) are disabled as well.

When I remove the CCR1016 from the network and connect to it directly the problem stops.

**Edit**

Tried 6.6rc1 which normis mentioned fixed the flapping, but the router crashes while booting. Back to 6.5 and waiting.

1. When I check the Bandwidth test between the two CCR-1016 is loaded only 1 core out of 16. This is a bug or feature? Router OS 6.5
2. The CPU temperature CCR-1016 with no load 55 * C. What is the maximum safe temperature for this processor?

This has nothing to do with x86, and only affects CCR. You probably have some unrelated issue. Email support with your supout.rif file.

normis,

Thank you for the update.

Yesterday I was trying to install 6.6 rc1 and it was crashing while booting. This only happened when the previous configuration was loaded. Once I reset the equipment to the defaults it booted fine, but again trying to load my config did crash the equipment.

I noticed it was as soon I loaded the PCQ tree config.

Could you please confirm if this problem was fixed?

I sent an e-mail of the console dump to my open ticket [#2013082866000107] .

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:34 pm

We are an ISP, and just finally switched off our OC3, so that now both of our upstream providers are 100% ethernet-based IP handoffs. Both 300mb. Question, our Sr Engineer that manages our core, says we can move to one of these "Cloud Core Router" by Mikrotik. We are currently using rack-mounted Cisco 7600 series. I know this new Mikrotik router will handle a lot more PPS, throughput, etc., but is it as reliable? Anyone been having issues with BGP or OSPF, or anything like that? I cannot risk ANYTHING not as reliable as our Cisco. I heard UBNT has something as well, but it looks like Mikrotik has been in the "router" game a lot longer, so I'm willing to maybe give it a shot.

Thanks for any feedback / advice.

Also, if there are any Mikrotik "experts" out there that do remote work, please contact me. I would like to know how to understand how to use this in our core database. Load-balancing and bonding are things we might be interested in.

Really, don't compare Cisco 7600 to CCR. ;) I don't want to say anything bad about Mikrotik but I had 7600 as a edge router with about bandwidth 2 Gbps usage with BGP via 5x1Gbit uplinks to internet. Almost no problems in many years. Now we have ASR 9006 as a edge router. 1,5 year with no problems. My two CCRs are from beginning till now hole plugs in rack, waiting for full multicore support in routeros. RouterOS controlled hardware is cheap and easy but really it is not for serious and bigger projects. No redundant hardware components, no redundant power supply. Only one thing that you can do to have any redundancy is to double your hardware and configuration.

We run an ISP in Caracas Venezuela. We have CCR running flawlessly in NOTA (Nap of The Americas) in Miami, running BGP with Cogent, HE and Level3 (1Gig port each). No issues.
We also have multiple CCR running in many POP in Caracas.
For running multiple BGP feeds, CCR runs like a Champ. However, if getting full routes, route updates for full tables may be a little slow. That's the only issue we had found.
If you need remote assistance I may be able to help you.

I have one CCR 1036-12G-4S and works fine until I turn on hotspot. But when I turn on hotsspot it crashes (after reboot log says "router was rebootet without proper shutdown,propably kernel failure") it reboots sometimes 10-15 minutes ahter turning on hotspot,sometimes work up to 2 hours... tried all avaible versions... but other router with same config works fine...

Try setting the router to factory defaults and try the downgrade. That's how I had to do it.

Could you tell us please how many full BGP tables you have and how long you update full table? For RC software it was about 3-4 minute for 1-2 full BGP tables.

I disabled LCD, and after 3 days I had only one flap port issue.
Only one porte went donw and then up in 3 secs.

Before I had all the ports going down/up at the same time.

Running 6.5


The latest 6.6 or 6.6rc1 is not usable because the router reboots as soon as it get traffic

I saw this model :CCR1036-12G-4S-EM in routerboard.com

The question is, can i use it to 1 SFP traffic in and 3 stm-4 traffic out? and is this device stable enough to replace a CISCO Catalyst switch with that?
Isn't any SFP+ port support model of CCR?

6.6 has not solved my problems.

I even removed auto-detection and set the copper speed to 100Mb - which is all my Cisco can do at the moment.
The Optic seemed stable but the bouncing copper killed that - then the CCR started rebooting....
Left just the Optic plugged in - and now at home - I find it dead - so the CCR is now totally unreachable.

I get the feeling that no one at Mikrotik has tested a CCR1036 in a live enviroment - with live, full BGP feeds.
If anyone from Mikrotik wants to pop over to London - I can provide the experience. I am currently scheduled
to fly back to South Africa on Monday evening though.

6.6 still has the problems with 100mbit/FDX ports randomly changing to gigabit.

It seems like some sort of database mismatch. Winbox shows the static speed/duplex as set, but export does not. See my last ticket updates.

How do Mikrotik get this soooo wrong !

We also have issues with SFP in CCR linking to certain devices on autonegotiation (lightpointe)

Hi Normis,

What we have observed is that ether1 on the CCR1016 will not link up to Cisco at 100FDX/NoAuto at all. We moved the connection to ether4 which works, but drops intermittently.

We cannot do any more testing on the units we are having the problem on as they are production networks, but I have a spare CCR and Cisco 1841 here which I will set up later today and give your team remote access to.

Feel free to contact me via Ticket#2013102666000026 if it is more efficient for you.

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:25 pm

From our experience the CCR isn't ready for hotspot use. The traffic on one of our sites had a negative trend where the bandwidth passed was lower when more users were online. This was contrary to what we experience with our X86 box as well as being contrary to logic.
I'm having similar issues using CCR1016-12G v6.0rc9 with hotspot and PPPoE server enabled. The CCR is connected to 100 Mbps FD fiber. Speedtests to local speedtest servers (within 200 miles and peered with my WAN provider) are consistently 92 Mbps, but speedtests to out-of-region sites are showing download of 6-12 Mbps, and upload of 1-3 Mbps. It seems that as latency to/from the remote site increases the throughput decreases. I'm seeing speed degradation of only ~10% when hotspot and PPPoE are turned off.

Is anyone else seeing this issue, and has it been resolved in latest v6.6? I've been reluctant to upgrade because newer releases don't seem to be getting good reviews.

I appreciate help and advise from any Mikrotik experts.

For running multiple BGP feeds, CCR runs like a Champ. However, if getting full routes, route updates for full tables may be a little slow. That's the only issue we had found.
Could you tell us please how many full BGP tables you have and how long you update full table? For RC software it was about 3-4 minute for 1-2 full BGP tables.

My CCR with V6.5 load 467000 prefixes on 2 full table in less than 2 mins...and 14800 IPV6 prefixe...

i wonder the ccr1036 can use 155mb/s gbic.
or it is not possible, the sfp module of the ccr1036 can only use gigabit gbic?

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Sat Nov 16, 2013 2:45 pm

We are an ISP, and just finally switched off our OC3, so that now both of our upstream providers are 100% ethernet-based IP handoffs. Both 300mb. Question, our Sr Engineer that manages our core, says we can move to one of these "Cloud Core Router" by Mikrotik. We are currently using rack-mounted Cisco 7600 series. I know this new Mikrotik router will handle a lot more PPS, throughput, etc., but is it as reliable? Anyone been having issues with BGP or OSPF, or anything like that? I cannot risk ANYTHING not as reliable as our Cisco. I heard UBNT has something as well, but it looks like Mikrotik has been in the "router" game a lot longer, so I'm willing to maybe give it a shot.

Thanks for any feedback / advice.

Also, if there are any Mikrotik "experts" out there that do remote work, please contact me. I would like to know how to understand how to use this in our core database. Load-balancing and bonding are things we might be interested in.

Look at the Juniper MX series perhaps.

Upgrading to v6.6 has not resolved our CCR1016 problems. Hotspot and PPPoE connections are still extremely slow. I've tried adjusting MTU, MRU, and turning MSS on/off with no noticeable improvement. Changing LAN port speed to 100 M half-duplex fixes the speed issue, but the ethernet becomes very unstable and locks up under continuous heavy traffic. Setting LAN port speed to 100 M half-duplex was only to test, and not something we would leave in place long term. It was just a way to isolate and test.

When Hotspot and PPPoE are turned off I can set LAN port speed to 1000 M full-duplex and achieve consistent Internet speeds to any LAN client (testing Internet to speeds of 100 Mbps up/down). So turning off Hotspot & PPPoE fixes the problem, but turning off just one or the other does not resolve the issue. I can live without PPPoE, but I need Hotspot.

I'd like to know if anyone else has seen these issues, and if so has anyone found a fix, or is this a firmware issue that Mikrotik needs to resolve?

I'd also like to understand why speed (throughput) was dramatically increased when LAN port speed was dialed down to 100 M half-duplex.

Does anyone know how many switch-chips are CCR1016-12G BU?
somehow ONLY has a chip swich?

how many groups can group switch 12 gigabit ports?

Can you give me a link with information about these issues (switch-chip group ports at CCR1016-12G-BU)?

thanks

I have the same problem with my CCR 1036-12G-4s ROS 6.5
I use 3 WAN with different public IP, each with link of 100mb with my provider.
I use mangle to mark routing to the 3 WAN.
The clients connect via pppoe with various profiles (PPP profiles with Rate Limit), some 512k/7M, another 2M/10M, another 12M/16M.
All pppoe reach the CCR through varius EoIP tunnels.
What happens is that ALL connections, both pppoe and pptp, regardless of the profile, go to download between 3 and 4 mega, not more, with a profile without rate limit, and then out of queues, it go at 25x25 (downloadXupload)
When there is increased demand for bandwidth, clients go to download between 2 and 3 mega and with a profile without rate limit, it go at 5x5.
Traffic on the single WAN never exceeds 50 mbps.
Tha active clients are 800.
I guess there is a problem with queue management, but do not know what.

Someone can help me ????

Replaced a RB2011UAS-RM which suffered from doing 150 PPPOE Connections with a CCR1036.
Great! Nearly no CPU usage now.
Problem was the CPU usage for the Mangling rules to adapt MSS.

No whinging for once. Got one of the new 10Gbps MKs on the lab... Decided to chuck 20Gbps through it on a bonded 2 x 10Gbps interface.

ITS VERY LOUD NOW!!!

Fun to see it actually managing to chuck the traffic out the interface though. Would be nice to think it could do this in production but I doubt it.

Still promising results non the less.

I'm currently playing with that toy too. in routing, it rulez. as soon as you add queues, it shows much lesser results :)

also, you don't have Rx on interfaces - loop those sfp+ interfaces and then create just one queue in queue tree with parent=global (the queue won't catch ANY traffic, but all incoming packets will go through only one core of 36 :) )

Yes. You've to be carefully what features to use and be careful with updates.
We've 3 CCR1036 in production now. Doing Routing/Bridging/OSPF/PPPOE/Vlan/Basic filtering with ROS 6.5.
They work great so far. Blazing fast and no Problems.

CCR1036-12G-4S

Been fighting it most of today, one customer getting slammed with a DoS Packet attack, 150,000-250,000 pps, its enough to cause this CCR to overload to 100% cpu! When the attack stops the router drops to 5-10% cpu, when the attack starts back up, back to 100% cpu. This is on 6.0rc7, 6.1 Release, 6.2rc1, tried all 3.
Absolutely same situation with the same CCR model and ROS 6.6.
Firewall contains lot of DNAT rules (port forwardings to internal services), tarpit, mark, allow/drop, address lists and so on.
But when CPU freq was increased from 600 to 1200 MHz, CPU usage was immediately reduced to 3-5%!
After that, usage is periodically increased up to 60-70%, and "/tool profile" says that firewall eats most of them.

Using firmware 6.6 on a CC and it's still flapping.
We disabled LCD and SNMP and it's a bit better.
What we noticed is that these conditions will cause flaps:

1. Over 20,000 pps per interface
2. Over 300mbit per interface
3. SNMP
4. OSPF changes

It's almost like there is a capacity limit that is either reached due to some storm or major ops volume.. by splitting one of our back-hauls to 2 x 250mbit we are avoiding most of the flaps.

Given this situation and complaints by customers, we are planning to switch the x86 platform. We like our CC routers but can't use them right now.

When under significant DoS attack your CPU load will go up in any way - question is how much your traffic can still get trough the device, I was living under DDoS for several weeks while my higher tier ISP was able to block it. CPU load was almost 100% all the time, but clients were still able to communicate through the device.
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

Honzam,

We only have CC on our backbone so I'm not sure I should test with 6.7
I am planning on taking one of the back-hauls down, allowing the primary to go over 300Mbit and see if it flaps with the LCD off. Problem is we can only "test" during peak hours as off hours the traffic is below 150Mbit total.

If you feel this 6.7 is stable enough I will try it, but I guess I'd have to prep our backup CC with the 6.6 and current config in case 6.7 blows up.

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Sat Nov 30, 2013 2:29 am

6.6 still has the problems with 100mbit/FDX ports randomly changing to gigabit.

It seems like some sort of database mismatch. Winbox shows the static speed/duplex as set, but export does not. See my last ticket updates.

How do Mikrotik get this soooo wrong !

We also have issues with SFP in CCR linking to certain devices on autonegotiation (lightpointe)
I have seen a similar issue on 2 different CCR's. Both were port flapping randomly all the active ports so we tried 6.7RC1 but no joy.

On closer inspection we were advised both CCR's had a single device each which is set to 100Mbps/Full duplex.

We changed one device on one router back to auto-negotiation and things have been stable now for 2-3 days.

The other router we set the port to match 100Mbps/Full Duplex and that also has been stable for 2-3 days.

Why an issue on 1 port made all the ports flap has me puzzled....

Hi Stuart,

For us the ports were not flapping, and it was restricted to a single port, the port set to 100FDX. There are no log entries to indicate the port has changed state, but when you view it's status in WinBox it will show as being at 1Gbps even though autonegotiation is disabled and it is set to 100FDX.

It seems there are multiple issues with the PHY configuration on Mikrotik RouterBoards:

1. Intermittent Port flapping on MIPSBE platform
2. Intermittent port flapping on TILE platform (possibly fixed in 6.7)
3. Negotiation issues with ECI cable modems on RB2011
4. Issues with ports being configured to 100FDX resetting to 1Gbps on TILE platform
5. Connection issues with SFP ports on CCR1036 to certain devices (Lightpointe, Cisco 3750X)

We so far are experiencing issues 2, 4 and 5.

Hopefully Mikrotik can pinpoint the cause and fix it soon.

Actually this happens to us on the x86 RouterMax. We run the latest firmware and ever since we got these, and if you change an IP or disconnect a device and connect it again, it won't re-establish layer 3 and only a reboot will fix it.

OSPF can take a few minutes to re-distribute.

The port flapping has only happened to us on CC and I think I have not seen it happen again since the LCD was disabled.

before our 2xquad Xeon showed the same issue too when we moved to 6.xx before the OSPF was perfect and never had issues.
we noted too that sometime it remain in unknow status without any ip connectivity only reboot solved it.


we just replaced it with CCR....

we will see, I know Mik team will work hard to fix it.

We are still having issues on CCR1016 with 6.7. It is MUCH worse than 6.5 ever was.

The CCR on 6.7 is now regularly rebooting on the watchdog timer.

Our config is very basic, 2 ports set to the default Gigabit/AUTO and ether4 set to 100Mbit/FDX.

On 6.5 it is stable but the 100/FDX port will randomly change to gigabit which requires a reboot to get it back to 100/FDX. On 6.7 the router will freeze and reboot. Downgrading it back to 6.5 makes it stable apart from the 100/FDX port cycling to gigabit.

Mikrotik, Why so many problems with PHY/Negotiation and port flapping on CCR? Why is it taking so long to identify it, and what can we do to help you fix it ?

Have you tried to disable the LCD. I know it's strange but ours has been quite stable since we turned off the LCD. I have one more test to do by allowing an interface to exceed 300mbit on its own, but so far so good. Running 6.6

Yes, we have tested two CCR1036-8G-2S+EM routers back to back using 10GB SFP modules we pulled from an Intel dual port NIC. Running the MikroTik bandwidth test from one router to the other using default config & BW test settings we saw about 3-4Gbps.

These same two routers are running v6.6 and are unable to link up and pass data to a Cisco 3850 or 3750 switch using 1GB MikroTik Single Mode SFP modules or the 1GB Maxxwave Single Mode SFP Modules. Have not yet tried linking 10GB to Cisco switches yet.

We plan on trying a CRS125-24G-1S-RM running v6.7 using MikroTik Single Mode SFP modules to the Cisco 3850 & 3750 switches soon.

We will also try upgrading the CCR1036 routers to v6.7 and see if they link up to the Cisco 3850 & 3750 switches.

Yes, we have tested two CCR1036-8G-2S+EM routers back to back using 10GB SFP modules we pulled from an Intel dual port NIC. Running the MikroTik bandwidth test from one router to the other using default config & BW test settings we saw about 3-4Gbps.
you mean exactly copper 10GBaseT, or fiber 10GBaseX modules? we're running 10GBaseX successfully, but we haven't found copper 10G SFP+ modules

This version fixed the issues for everybody that was in contact with support.
Really not. I've treated twice with PPPoe server problems on cloud series routers, problems are still not fixed.

Guys, I may have missed the answer in the 1100 posts. Please excuse me if I have. As one has said, the whole reason for excitement is performance. I have a couple of questions...which I hope are easy.

1. So we just need to use SFP+ modules to achieve the 10GB speeds, is this correct?

2. Can I plan to use this as Nexus 5548UP replacement? We inherited the beast and well, it has some down points for a smaller company without a large budget. So, I have been looking into this as a possible replacement when/if needed.

My concern at this point is that the SFP is not the 10Gb our private cloud wants/needs. I admit, I may be missing something. The documentation did not cover the SFP port speed that I saw or understood.

Thanks in advance.

We are still having issues on CCR1016 with 6.7. It is MUCH worse than 6.5 ever was.

The CCR on 6.7 is now regularly rebooting on the watchdog timer.

Our config is very basic, 2 ports set to the default Gigabit/AUTO and ether4 set to 100Mbit/FDX.

On 6.5 it is stable but the 100/FDX port will randomly change to gigabit which requires a reboot to get it back to 100/FDX. On 6.7 the router will freeze and reboot. Downgrading it back to 6.5 makes it stable apart from the 100/FDX port cycling to gigabit.

Mikrotik, Why so many problems with PHY/Negotiation and port flapping on CCR? Why is it taking so long to identify it, and what can we do to help you fix it ?
I thought that disabling the LCD would fix things, but am on 6.6 and with LCD disabled, as soon as one interface gets to 300mbit range, they all flip flop :-( The only way we get around this is to enable the fallback radios to do load balance so that we can get over 300mbit without flipping. Given your post, it does not sound like 6.7 provided a solution nor is it stable.

hi
have you tried to disable allow hardware fast path from ip settings?
it is now since 2 days and seems no port disconnect issue as also no kernel panic.
lcd is disabled too.
traffic avg is 100Mb all day

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Tue Dec 10, 2013 6:50 am


I have seen a similar issue on 2 different CCR's. Both were port flapping randomly all the active ports so we tried 6.7RC1 but no joy.

On closer inspection we were advised both CCR's had a single device each which is set to 100Mbps/Full duplex.

We changed one device on one router back to auto-negotiation and things have been stable now for 2-3 days.

The other router we set the port to match 100Mbps/Full Duplex and that also has been stable for 2-3 days.

Why an issue on 1 port made all the ports flap has me puzzled....
Hi Stuart,

For us the ports were not flapping, and it was restricted to a single port, the port set to 100FDX. There are no log entries to indicate the port has changed state, but when you view it's status in WinBox it will show as being at 1Gbps even though autonegotiation is disabled and it is set to 100FDX.

It seems there are multiple issues with the PHY configuration on Mikrotik RouterBoards:

1. Intermittent Port flapping on MIPSBE platform
2. Intermittent port flapping on TILE platform (possibly fixed in 6.7)
3. Negotiation issues with ECI cable modems on RB2011
4. Issues with ports being configured to 100FDX resetting to 1Gbps on TILE platform
5. Connection issues with SFP ports on CCR1036 to certain devices (Lightpointe, Cisco 3750X)

We so far are experiencing issues 2, 4 and 5.

Hopefully Mikrotik can pinpoint the cause and fix it soon.
Issue 2 seems more stable since RoS6.7 full release.

It would be nice if the /system package upgrade in Winbox gave you a choice to "force" upgrade or "reload RoS" so you can overwrite all the test versions easily when the full release comes out :-)

Doesn't "system reset" do what you asked? Or you meant something like upgrade+reset with one command? You can do that already. Upload the packages, and issue the "system reset" command, it will reboot, reset and upgrade also.

Please give advice! If, skip IPTV through CCR1036-8G-2S+EM to 10GB interface, the processor will not load? I want connect to Mikrotik some DVB IP Streamers.
And on the firewall, I want create a rule to collect, the MAC address of the users.

I am really shocked at these mikrotik developers. CPU becomes %96 and ports flap. I give you access to the router and you dont even login for 2 straight days. You go home at 5pm I guess, and my CPU stays on %96 and ports continously flap while you are off work ! and on monday you ask me why you cant login. That is because you dont care to fix your own shit on time !

I can reproduce the bug anytime, and you DONT even care !!!

Whats wrong with you guys ?

Im very pleased with the performance and reliability of the CCR's now we have 2 in the datacentre running our whole network with hardly any issues.

Are we any closer to getting BGP Multi core? It really screws winbox up when you make large changes to any of the BGP config. (Normally end up loosing total access for a few mins)

Also the issue with SFP Modules not working in the SFP+ slots. Im quite sure this is a software issue! Mikrotik have gone very quiet on replying to Ticket#2013121366000412

@krisjanis

If you could update us with these tickets about what you are seeing and giving us things to try that would be useful.

I can't test with one right now but we could ask Stuart (distributor) to set it up with our config and test it out.

Can you let us know what you are seeing? do your ones just auto neg at 1G immediately? do you have to lock them to 1G? does it work immediately when you lock it? does it need one or more reboots?

We are happy to help with sorting out these problems (need to buy me a personal CCR1036-8G-2S+)

It appears to be a problem with the mikrotik sfp's I managed to get it working last night. I put a Cisco module and and locked it to 1g full duplex and it come up 1st time!

I would be interested to know what's causing the problem!

I have cracked the problem!

Mikrotik SFP's appear not to talk to Cisco SFP's.

We have just had another connection fitted in the data centre. With exactly the same problem but this time in the CCR1036-12G-4S with the Mikrotik SFP.

Shows as link up but no connection. I bet when i change this to a Cisco SFP it will all start working!

Are we any closer to fixing the BGP problems! its getting quite annoying that i loose winbox access when the router is loading a 2nd full table and it will not return for at least half an hour. I think this is CPU related. Its so so so annoying. Does anyone else have this problem?

I think you will find the Cisco SFP will not work either.

Our experience is that CCR has some sort of issue negotiating at gigabit with some devices via SFP. We have had issues with LightPointe units and Cisco switches so far and have tested Mikrotik, Cisco and generic modules.

In our experience you can take a working module from a Cisco switch and put it in a CCR and it will not bring the link up, put it back in the Cisco and it will work.

Im overseas at the moment otherwise I would have followed through with Mikrotik support.

Cisco SFP's seam to work 1st time for me. It does seam that if you have cisco laser one end and a mikrotik at the other end they will not link. But as soon as its cisco lasers both ends the link comes up everytime!

Cool :D Please share more of your experiences. So does it mean BGP process runs on multicore? Do you have IPSec on that router? If yes, does hardware acceleration work?

no. BGP still one core, but the loading of prefixe is better...

I had an interesting experience with a CCR yesterday.

Went to hook up a UPS (APC SU3000RMXL) to the serial console. Uploaded the UPS package and rebooted the CCR to install it.

The CCR got stuck with "routerboot configuration" displayed on the screen (first useful thing I've seen with that dumb little LCD).

I waited and waited... after a few minutes of no activity, I pulled the plug and tried again. Still stuck on "routerboot configuration," so I hooked up a serial console cable, cycled the power again, and it booted right up!

The UPS package did NOT install, there were no log messages about why it would fail. I tried again, and again, the CCR stuck at "routerboot configuration" with the UPS plugged in, and never would install the UPS package.

Any ideas?

I have a similar issue with a crr, If the router is off for any length of time it appears hang at boot. If you leave it for almost a minute or more it will boot. I have the UPS package installed, but the UPS is unhooked because it cause's other issues. Running latest 6.7

It looks scarry at first while the router is not booting.
Here is the formal answer.....

This is expected, as the unit receives information via console, and perceives
this as the "press any key" message at startup, and then enters RouterBOOT menu.

To change this, enter RouterBOOT setup, and change the "any key" behavior in the
settings.

For using UPS packages let you try to disable console first
/system console disable numbers=0
For ROS developers is completely normal to break down whole service in major release.

It would be nice if the /system package upgrade in Winbox gave you a choice to "force" upgrade or "reload RoS" so you can overwrite all the test versions easily when the full
release comes out :-)
Doesn't "system reset" do what you asked? Or you meant something like upgrade+reset with one command? You can do that already. Upload the packages, and issue the "system reset" command, it will reboot, reset and upgrade also.
We do not wish to "reset" the router. We wish to force it to reload RouterOS packages from your update site.

When you run RoS 6.8rc1 etc and the full release comes out the Upgrade option reports you are already on RoS6.8 so no upgrade.

It ignores the RoS package dates so we need it to either inspect the package dates when checking if an upgrade is necessary, or another button to force the Update irrespective of currently loaded RoS version.

If you could update us with these tickets about what you are seeing and giving us things to try that would be useful.

I can't test with one right now but we could ask Stuart (distributor) to set it up with our config and test it out.

Can you let us know what you are seeing? do your ones just auto neg at 1G immediately? do you have to lock them to 1G? does it work immediately when you lock it? does it need one or more reboots?

We are happy to help with sorting out these problems (need to buy me a personal CCR1036-8G-2S+)

Hi Alexander,

Let me know if you need anything :D

Happy New year by the way :lol:

Stuart

It does this without the UPS plugged in
could you please contact support with more details about your problem, so we can figure out what is happening? thanks

Happy new year mate

I will come down and visit soon

Also will let you know when I am ready to purchase the hardware.

Have to do a test today, seems to be having a problem with crappy performance for customers going into the CCR1036-8G-2S+

Lots of timeouts which seem to be drops, But no reported drops in the system. Customers whose end devices are gig are fine, however 100Mbps client devices are having this issue.

Some go into media converters (single units) and some go into a CRS (multi tennant buildings)

However I don't have a spare of our standard router nor another CCR to test with.

Regards
Alexander

Is anyone successfully monitoring a CCR with SNMP ?

We have been holding back on this on our production units as I recall there were wide spread issues with this causing performance issues previously.

We have several CCR1036 and RB1100AHx2. We monitor those routers with SNMP without performance issue. But we couldn`t see CPU utilization on SolarWinds Orion NPM.

I'm using It on my CCR in 6.8RC1, Full BGP with 3 x 470K prefixes and 20 private peering, with PRTG for CPU and interface stats.
No issue found.

any update about [Ticket#2013112766000121]?

it is about ipv6 on bonding interface where the balancing is about L3 not working at all (not able to ping an ipv6 on such interface).

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Mon Jan 20, 2014 1:11 pm

Hey everyone,

I've already mailed MTk support with this, but why not share it here:

We have some CCRs deployed (on some very exposed locations, e.g. gigabits). With some CCRs we've been having following kind of problem:

- Connection tracking randomly fails (e.g. some connections just don't go through and are dropped)
- There is stuff missing in WinBox windows (e.g. empty Interfaces window) and corresponding terminal commands (
/some-missing-stuff print
) freeze until ctrl+c is pressed
- Other random things fail randomly (PPPs, sometimes NAT is not working at all, dynamic routing is flapping, ...)

We are on the 6.7 version.

I've been investigating the issue and kindof decided that it could be the problem of damaged RAM (looks exactly like one - services randomly failing at run time, and you can't even run memtest). We didn't want to break the warranty so we didn't replace the RAM, but put other (backup) CCR on the place. That one started failing similar way after a few days, so now we are thinking of putting yet another CCR backup there.

Question: Is it possible that we could receive 2 CCR's with damaged RAM (those were from the same batch)?

Question 2: I know it's not very likely, so is it possible that some software configuration can cause similar issues?

Question 3: Could it be a hardware problem with something else? (storage?)

Thanks in advance for any help!

We have got 9 Days up time with 21 BGP Peers connected. with around 520,000 Prefix's (IPv4 / IPv6) on CCR36-12-4S <3% CPU using 1G of Ram

Im having some issues with local pref and MED settings in v6 even after adding it to the Filters it appears to take no notice. This is a pain because you have no control which peer the traffic goes over.

Its defo looking like the software is getting more reliable :)

Sharing my experience:

Upgrading My CCR to Ver 6.8RC1 of 19/12/2013

all seems runing ok, BGP, OSPF ...

loaded 3 x BGP upstream provider with 470000 prefixes each in 2 minutes 11 secondes...
This is my experience:
I had a CCR1016-12G with v6.7, only one BGP peer, full table. After a few days it stopped the routing process.
I then reported to Mikrotik (ticket #2014011666000391) the problem. The answer (in my opinion embarrassing) was "Hello, Route is crashing. Try to reboot the router."
We carried out the upgrade to v6.8rc1, but the routing process lasted for 1 days.
I complained about the problem, but I had no answers technically useful.

Unfortunately, and I say this with regret, CCR is not yet a reliable product.

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Fri Jan 24, 2014 7:04 pm

For the first time, i got problems using CCR. This is my first CCR, not using sfp, so it might be related to my problem.

I changed a RB1000 to a CCR. The purpus of the router, is to make VPLS tunnels from a IC With another ISP. Setup is easy : ether1 -Cisco(l2 link in to site) ether2 - misc mikrotik radioes ether3 -Huawei (IC to other ISP) VPLS Tunnelt do sites in a MPLS Cloud ( all working)

After changed, confed (mainly just put backup bac, and confirm config) The router started to not respons over ether1. Nither ether 4 - Laptop could find the router. After som reasearch, it seems like ether1 Connected to cisco, 100mb/half Duplex. I Called fiber providere, and asked to check port, and it was set to auto. We tried to set to 100 full in both sides, get no better results. There was a lot of CRC errors. We then tried to change port in CCR and Cisco, and change cable. We got same results here. The Device get unresponsive after some secound, and we hadf' to reebot to recconnect.

After this we decided to try a gigabit Interface to link. We used a copper SFP, and linked at 1G speed. Sucess. All went ok. So its seems like 100mb/s and cisco, would not Connect correctly.

After all this was ok, i started to make the VPLS tunnel, and put them back in bridge connecting to other ISP ( huawei) . Now router compleatly freeze , and was not able to even boot by LCD. Had to take Power out. After some Research, woundring about maybe loops etc, since it freezes as fast as router was puted in bridge, we figured out that the huawei also had Connected 100mb/half Duplex. All this using ros 6.7. I decided to try 6.6, and downgraded to 6.6 (as long as the eternet to huawei was not in bridge, all was ok). After the downgrade, i started to se a really bad portflap in all ports. I think this migh be the problem. Once every 20-30 second, the Connected ports og to no link - link - no link link. Now i did not loose winbox to router. after a lot of troble, i desided to change back to the rb1000. I put it in rack, Powered up, and wolla. All have went ok since this.

There is som major problem to Ethernet in ros 6.x on tilera. I dont see this at the PowerPC ( Rb 1000)

I have seen it before. there is an issue with with 100Mbit half duplex. one of my CCR had rebooted by a watchdog while one port was set to 100Mb half. maybe its related to a bridge on this port.
While making sure that I have no half duplex ports all went up and working great seince,


Thumb rule. If one side is 100 Full (Hard) the auto side will be 100 Half if you set both sides to 100 Full and the link goes down you should cross the cable,

No problem just enabeling this. but as once as the port get traffic, and count CRC error, the watchdog steps in, and boot the router.

You should try to reinstall this CCR with Netinstall and make sure RouterBoot firmware is upgraded to v3.10 and report this to MikroTik support with supout.rif file.

Im sorry, i have "updated" this to connect using SFP- CWDM, removed cisco and connected to huawi at gigabit. This have solved the problem.

However, it should be easy to reproduce. Connect a CCR to a 10/100port (not gigabit) at a cisco device, and start to have traffic to this.

config as follow:

ros code

/interface bridge
add l2mtu=1500 name=Internett
add l2mtu=1525 name=bridgeNN
add name=loopback
/interface ethernet
set [ find default-name=sfp1 ] l2mtu=3000

PS! The annoing route-distinguisher="(unknown)" bug is still here.

Edit PS2 : This was a new blank CCR from box, that came with 6.1. I just removed default config (r) gave it a IP, and upgraded ros to 6.7 and firmware to 3.10, before doing annything else to it. It should be wired if i need to netinstall this.

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:30 pm

Mikrotik, as reported previously, and as per samsung172's post, there are STILL issues with CCR connecting to Cisco devices with static port speeds e.g. 100mbit/FDX.

Now im not sure if this is even specific to CCR --> Cisco, or it is just static 100/FDX configuration as the only time we use this config is connected to Cisco devices...

Has Mikrotik done any testing on this ?

It is an annoying fault as sometime it will go nicely for weeks, then all of a sudden stop working, e.g. port speed changes to 1gigabit, or router reboots or freezes.

This and the "bug" that dont let a l2tp server run inside a vrf, is annying. Maybe a feature request. What vrf, do you want to use for what service. :D eg. ftp at vrf1, ssh at vrf2 and l2tp at vrf3.

Also some bugs export/import bgp config. (I dont remember, exactly, but it seems lik it mess up the order of "what settings to set first and last". Hva to import 2 times. Then its ok. :P

Yes, and the New- bla bla bla unable to somehing about default snmp - colud not remove default snmp comunity... Its annoing when try to make a script remove old config, then set New config.

eg:

ros code

/ snmp {  :foreach x in=[ community find ] 
do={ community remove $x }; community add name=INSTALL address=172.16.1.1/32 
read-access=yes; set enabled=yes contact="" location="" }

Re: CLOUD CORE ROUTER

Hi! Anyone know how to monitoring averege CPU load by SNMP? Routerboard (CCR1036-8G-2S+EM).

Im just find snmp statistic for each core. But i is not comfortable to take 36 oids and calculating average for take overall cpu load.

Im finding oid's by command > print oid.
Im looking for simply oid for take cpu load. Like this:
[MikroTik] > system resource print
uptime: 2d13h46s
version: 6.3
build-time: Sep/03/2013 12:25:21
free-memory: 14.9GiB
total-memory: 15.9GiB
cpu: tilegx
cpu-count: 36
cpu-frequency: 600MHz
cpu-load: 17%
free-hdd-space: 899.3MiB
total-hdd-space: 1024.0MiB
architecture-name: tile
board-name: CCR1036-8G-2S+
platform: MikroTik

Thanks for all!

I have loaded my CCR and all looks well. I suspect the release of 6.9 is good judging by the lack of complaints on this thread

This CCR is empty? in the lab? or it does some networking?

Queue Tree is NOT Multi-thread/Multi-Core optimized yet so performance will be limited to a single core(tile) on the CCR routers. This is likely what you are experiencing.

Mikrotik have indicated this is the next thing that will get optimized once PPP optimizations are finished.
