REST API causes high load

Thu Sep 29, 2022 3:37 pm

There is quite a bit problem with the REST api

On a single core mikrotik, the CPU will spike to 100% on a REST call

From the API docs
curl -k -u admin:
on a single core CPU will return a cpu-load of greater than 90%.

If you add a query parameter onto that
curl -k -u admin:
The CPU will rise to 100% and stay there for a few minutes. That query never returns. This is valid for 7.4.1 and 7.5. It pretty much makes the REST api useless.
