I have a hAP AX3 running the latest stable RouterOS (v7.9.1).
I also have the latest stable container package (v7.9.1).
I am trying to run pihole as container (on external USB 3.1 flash drive).
However, the container is extremely slow:
- it takes about 30 minutes before the pihole admin page is available
- load is always reported by the pihole as being higher than 8
- all actions in the interface are painfully slow
- CPU usage on the hAP AX3 is very low (less than 10%, typically 1-3%)
This however only happens if I set a limit for container memory. No matter how high I set the limit (i have set it between 200 and 1000), as long as the limit is >0, the container is slow.
If I set the limit to 0, then the container starts in a matter of seconds.
Anyone experiencing similar issues? Is this a bug/known issue?
