Clock runs 10x fast with v3.28 wireless test package on x86

Tue Aug 11, 2009 4:31 am

I am running ROS v3.28 with the wireless test package on a 500 MHz AMD Geode LX CPU
http://www.pcengines.ch/alix3d2.htm
The clock runs ten times too fast and CPU utilization jumps to 60% (was 20% before).
This also screws up the interface statistics, etc...
All is normal as soon as wireless test package is disabled.

Got a response from Mikrotik support. The answer is that everything is fine with their software and it must be a hardware problem. Of course!
Anyone else experiencing this same issue?

A few versions ago there was a bug with dual core processors that caused the clock to run much faster and the box would eventually crash. I think it was 2-3 times the speed though. That problem was corrected with the next release. I've always found occasional issues/incompatibilities with various mb's/cpu's on any linux type OS.

Can you downgrade versions? Not sure when last wireless-test change was made.

Now I'm curious - what was added feature for running wireless-test package?

Yes, there are still clock issues with some PC's.

My Core2Duo machine is running fine with 3.30 wireless-test and 4.2 wireless, but some older Compaq PIII 730MHz has 10 times faster clock (counts 10 seconds instead of one). I contacted support again.

this issue can usually be fixed by a BIOS upgrade. if that doesn't help, I recommend you to find another PC because clock issues will affect most other features too

Hi Normis,

I've made a test lab and the bug appears also with 3.30-wireless-test package. I'm affraid to find the problem again with ver 5.
Clock is ticking normally until I activate nstreme on a wlan interface. When the wlan is in nstreme mode, time is ticking 4 to 10 times faster.
Do you think we can have a ver 4x running correctly, I'm actually blocked with 3.30...

Best regards,
Julien Hoppe

Maybe 4.13 is the solution, we should try it with wileless-nv2 package and turn of nstreme wherever possible. I also have up to 10 x86 machines stuck with 3.30.

Usually on 3.xx with wireless test and 4.xx setting multi-cpu to yes resolve problem with nstreme and clock on single core x86.

On 5.0rc this problem is resolved you can set multi-cpu to no or yes not problem, some old 5.0beta version have been some problem with nstreme and multicpu options.
