Hallo Guys i imported one of those 6 port x86 servers from china with the idea to have it do all the number crunching.
Can please coming more clear to the point or what exactly for a x86 machine you are using?
Things such as the Producer, Brand, model, model number would be fine!
Database of MiroTik RouterOS supported Hardware
Here are some well known and liquid running x86 appliances where MikroTik RouterOS is proper
- Lanner FW-6436
- Lanner FW-7535
- Lanner FW-7541
PC Engines Alix Boards:
All Boards, but the Alix APU is not tested yet
meconet High-Performance-Router HPR-1155-6G4S
meconet High-Performance-Router HPR-1155-6G4S/DC
meconet High-Performance-Router HPR-1156-6G
meconet High-Performance-Router HPR-1156-6GC
What happens though is that when ever i put the exact setup on it...it seems to slow down tremendously and i cant seem to get the same performance out of it compared to a my rb2011???
How do you were setting up the X86 exactly?
Did you copy your old configuration file from the RB2011 to the x86 appliance?
Or did you set up step-by-step the x86 by hand or plain called on feet?
Swapping over the configuration file will bring mostly many problems by side
and can narrow down the entire x86 router.
the onboard ethernet is intels 82583V. My problem is that at the moment my rb2011 is running at 100% cpu so i need to get this sorted out.
I understand this really and would suggest you to play with the idea to try out
a OgmaConnect or PowerRouter v3 this would be the fastest option in my eyes
and you will never coming in pain related to the routing power or 100% of cpu usage!!!
I see there are places selling the exact same server with mikrotik preloaded so it must work??
Once more again would you please come closer to the point what exactly kind of hardware
we are talking about.
