Torch not working with CRS226-24G-2S+

Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:33 pm

Hello,

I have a CRS226-24G-2S+ and I cant get torch tool to work. Even if the selected interface has traffic, there is no output.

Factory firmware is: 3.22
RouterOS version: 6.36.3

I will upgrade to latest version, but I do not think this will resolve issue.

Thank you

See http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=68619#p348979
If you want to see the traffic in torch, use "/interface bridge". You are using the "master-port" function which is different. Take a look at the diagrams in this wiki article: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Sw ... _Switching

Using the "master-port" the traffic is processed directly in the switch chip, torch is done at the CPU, but using "master-port" packets dont get to the CPU.

But, when using Bridge, all ports share a single 1 gbps link to the CPU, so your layer 2 performance will suffer horribly. If you need to see all the traffic from a single port when using Master/slave port configuration, use port mirroring.

Interesting! What steps are needed to set that up?
