*) wireless - improved Nv2 PtMP performance;
is it further improvement from 6.42.1?
I'd like to know what kind of NV2 performance improvement we can expect from version 6.43? I did notice improvements in version 6.42 but heard of people saying the new 6.43rc is worse then 6.42...

Agreed, I've upgraded my production routers to 6.43rc7 and they are working very well.

We had an issue with a CHR running 6.42.1 restarting 3 times in a day and subsequently downgraded to 6.41.4. Both of these versions yielded high latency, which has been fixed with the multi-queue driver in 6.43.rc12.

Steps:
  • Upgraded RouterOS to v6.43rc12
  • Set KVM VirtIO network driver on Hypervisor to support multi-queue
  • Disabled RPS on CHR instance
Router was upgraded at approximately 22:45 on the 15th of May.

Latency:

Looks like IRQs are not balanced evenly, this may be on the hypervisor though...


PS: Nice to see that IRQ rx/tx queue pairs are mapped to the same CPU. Herewith a snippet from the router:

strods,

When I tried to install the ntp package (downloaded zip file for rc12, extracted the ntp package and put it to the files folder) and found it did not work.

The problem has been fixed because the main system package is rc11 and I installed rc12 ntp package. After upgrading the main package to rc12 version, I could able to install the ntp package.

Yes, and that was described in the Log after reboot. That's how it works - all packages should be of the same version.

Version 6.43rc14 has been released.

Before an upgrade:
1) Remember to make backup/export files before an upgrade and save them on another storage device;
2) Make sure the device will not lose power during upgrade process;
3) Device has enough free storage space for all RouterOS packages to be downloaded.

Changes since previous rc release:

*) bridge - add dynamic CAP interface to tagged ports if "vlan-mode=use-tag" is enabled;
*) bridge - added ingress filtering options to bridge interface (CLI only);
*) bridge - added initial Q-in-Q support (CLI only);
*) bridge - allow to make changes for bridge port when it is interface list;
*) crs3xx - added initial Q-in-Q hardware offloading support (CLI only);
*) crs3xx - fixed ACL rate rules (introduced in v6.41rc27);
*) defconf - fixed missing bridge ports after configuration reset;
*) ipsec - improved reliability on generated policy addition when IKEv1 or IKEv2 used;
*) led - fixed CCR1016-12S-1S+ LED behaviour after Netinstall (introduced in v6.41rc58);
*) lte - added support for Novatel USB730LN modem with new ID;
*) routerboard - fixed "protected-routerboot" feature (introduced in v6.42);
*) wireless - improved Nv2 stability for 802.11n interfaces on RB953, hAP ac and wAP ac devices;

If you experience version related issues, then please send supout file from your router to support@mikrotik.com. File must be generated while router is not working as expected or after crash.

Note that release candidate versions are published strictly for testing purposes and should not be used on production routers.

I like: "crs3xx - added initial Q-in-Q hardware offloading support (CLI only);"
could someone please point me to the correct manual/wiki entry on this one?

You can find an example here:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... 8Q-in-Q.29

Note that the same principles can be applied as for regular VLAN filtering (trunk, access, management port and so on).
Do note that QinQ with RSTP is not supposed to work with bridges that use 802.1Q (this is by standard IEEE 802.1ad), but there is a bug in 6.43rc14 that prevents RSTP from working properly, this is fixed in 6.43rc15.

Also the wiki for CRS3xx is updated with more examples with ACL rules:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:C ... s_switches

Starting from 6.43rc14 "protocol-mode=none" disables compliance with IEEE 802.1Q and allows to forward 01:80:C2:XX:XX:XX MAC addresses, most noticeable protocols that use these MAC addresses are LACP and dot1x. By setting the protocol-mode to none you can achieve a true transparent bridge. Use with caution though.

Is there work in progress or planned to make a bridge with protocol-mode=none and simple VLAN filtering (a couple of VLANs defined on the bridge and the ports being untagged or tagged members) to support hardware offload on the common switch chips in the routers?
As it is now, it is not hardware offloaded when configured this way, but when the bridge is configured without VLAN filtering and the VLANs are defined in the switch config, it is.

Please add SOCKS5 to RouterOS! Many people want it!

Im seeing a disc space leak over time. Im seeing it on TILE, MIPSBE and PPC. Im seeing it on all the devices I manage.

This because obvious when I could not upgrade or downgrade firmware because there was not enough space. I dont see what is taking up space on the NAND. I saw one device go from 27.9 free space out of 64 down to 14MB when I tried to downgrade. I also saw a device go from 16MB free space to 27.9MB free space WHEN I UPGRADED from RC12 to RC14..

This issue seems to take time to develop. 6.41.4 is stable and does not do this. 42.x seems to and 43RC14 also seems to.

The only way around this is Netinstall. I erased NAND to be sure. I wanted to bring this up on the forum as it can lead to having to go onsite and Netinstall and restore the device. This also seems to be present in 42.x

Ive sent a email to support.

Then it must be related to something you do on all the devices you manage. What are you doing that could consume diskspace and that could be nonstandard?
For example, enabled graphing with storage to disk. I had that in the past but I removed storage to disk to reduce the number of disk writes, so I cannot check if that could be it.
(in the past it did not cause a disk leak, of course it consumes space but it is trimmed over time)
