This is my first post here. I have been working with mikrotik for a while and maybe this doubt could be of help for many users.
I have been developing applications to mikrotik for the last two years and despite I love this product, there is something that really pisses me off, and I will tell you way.
My boss always asks me when we are using a device(i.e.: RB450g) what would be the maximum capability of users for a certain application running there(i.e.: VPN gateway,Hotspot,etc.) and I always tell him a fatidic: it depends how traffic will flow the infrastructure and my answer are always guesses what really makes me feel down. Anyways -perfomance on processors depends a lots on power supply voltage ,temperature(environmental conditions) and the size of the script.
Do you have any calculator or page that I could use as reference? I make my guesses in general based on statistics I have on my personal files(i.e.: rg951-2n traffic shapping for a voip application working and being used for a network with more than 5 users being shapped, fatally colapses).
Comments are highly welcome.
