may you elaborate little bit further?
*) x86 - fixed SR-IOV support for Intel X710 series NIC;

we use them and the only issue is the fact that we must use only auto about cpu irq interface queue. Is it something about?

What is the reasoning for not allowing new devices being sold now with V7 to be reinstalled with V6? Seems like it'd be reasonable and considerate to remove this limitation until 7 becomes fit for professional use.

Since updating to 7.8beta2 I'm having issues importing remote container image zabbix/zabbix-proxy-sqlite3:alpine-6.0-latest on my RB5009 (arm64). It was working fine on 7.7rc5.

Nice start for this new version but I like to see in the roadmap to get High Availability (HA) in which I can have 2 CRS3xx/CRS5xx in a stack in which all the configurations on the primary and connection states are sync-up constantly in the secondary (including DHCP leases). That will be a killer feature to have :)

First, one shouldnt feed the troll posts like mine ;-PP
Secondly, accessing it via container is discriminatory and dumb, it should be a package avail on all MT devices.

I do like new stuff and new version. But for me this seems to be more like 7.7.1 beta, not 7.8 beta
Mostly fixes and improvements, and new stuff added are just cosmetic.

yessss

after so many v7 iterations ...

1. SFP data is back
2. SLAAC address show as expected
3. RA route show as expected
4. SNMP readout of SFP values as expected

I think most people are missing the (possibly) bigger "news" here.

"RouterOS Enterprise" (using modern NAS tech) allows us to leverage the untapped CPU/disk resources of our beefier boxes. Or, more particularly, beefier boxes yet to be released.

The RAID examples in the docs (https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/ROSE-storage) use NVMe as examples. One could expect to see more 2x16's with more RAM and NVMe slots--or possibly some 2x32's, with 32 cores, 32GB of RAM, 2-4-more NVMe slots, and 40G or 100G networking.

Or, you could just put it on the bare metal and leverage whatever you have today.

I just got NFS working between an AX3 and a 2116 in the lab and it was painless. Next up will be to spin up containers on the AX3, without having to attach a USB drive.

Yes you're right, 10 NVMe slot is not for a router but for a server. ;-)

This is a disappointing release as 7.8, should have been 7.7.1.

When are we going to see Mikrotik address those critical route/switch features that most enterprises use. Specifically:

1. BFD fixed
2. BGP-VPNv4-VRF RR fixed
3. Something equivalent to Cisco DMVPN, HP DVPN, Meraki AutoVPN, or Fortinet ADVPN, etc.
4. EVPN
5. MPLS Fast Reroute
6. BGP Multi-path
7. L3HW off loading that is compatible with MLAG and VRRP
8. L3HW off loading for VXLAN
9. L3HW off loading for QinQ

Until those are delivered I can’t use Mikrotik in any medium or large US companies I support. Cant use it in the data center, can’t use it in the WAN edge, can’t use it in the LAN.

ROSE is nice but it’s not helping me get Mikrotik into the enterprise in the US.

While I agree with many of the flaws, point #3 is generally referred to as SDWAN and is implemented in RoS using ZeroTier.

Yep, couldn´t agree more, I am disappointed by 7.8 as well: people are not waiting for ROS to have perfect storage support (ROSE). Having containers is great, but it should not be the focus. I am waiting for solid WIFI features (band steering, roaming, wireless bridging for wifiwave2, single capsman to manage old and new wifi), better IPv6 support (fast track, rfc9096), more HW acceleration.
I would also love to see CCR2004-PCIe card BSD support, which was spoken about, but was never realized!
What about more modular wifiwave2, so that it fits on my CAPac, HAPac2 ? Those would be the real killer features for me!

This is a disappointing release as 7.8, should have been 7.7.1.

When are we going to see Mikrotik address those critical route/switch features that most enterprises use.
While I agree with your point, of course this is NOT a release. It is not 7.8.
It is the first in a row of betas that will add more and more features, until finally we get a 7.8rc1 in about a month, and THEN it is time to complain that it again does not fix those features and issues.
However, like you I fear that this will again be the case by then. We get things like a disk manager, instead of some long awaited fixes in the basic functionality of a router.

By now my hAP ac2 has only 1452 KiB of free space on the flash, with just the routeros package and a simple bridge mode AP only configuration.
Is that typical for this device, or is it time for a netinstall?

I have recently netinstalled my HAPac2 (maybe around the release of 7.4). I have 1,7MB free after the upgrade to 7.8. So a netinstall probably wont help much.

Thanks! I was worried that during one of the upgrades a couple of MB was left behind... I have another AP that is MIPSBE and it has 3800 KiB free, but apparently ARM code is a lot larger than MIPSBE.

This is a disappointing release as 7.8, should have been 7.7.1.

When are we going to see Mikrotik address those critical route/switch features that most enterprises use. Specifically:

1. BFD fixed
2. BGP-VPNv4-VRF RR fixed
3. Something equivalent to Cisco DMVPN, HP DVPN, Meraki AutoVPN, or Fortinet ADVPN, etc.
4. EVPN
5. MPLS Fast Reroute
6. BGP Multi-path
7. L3HW off loading that is compatible with MLAG and VRRP
8. L3HW off loading for VXLAN
9. L3HW off loading for QinQ

Until those are delivered I can’t use Mikrotik in any medium or large US companies I support. Cant use it in the data center, can’t use it in the WAN edge, can’t use it in the LAN.

ROSE is nice but it’s not helping me get Mikrotik into the enterprise in the US.
I agree. I think Mikrotik has to decide what segment to focus on. Home users that demand bleeding-edge all-in-one boxes or enterprise that need proven solutions and functions.

"DMVPN" is such a killer feature in the enterprise world. VyOS has support for it since years.

9 cAP ac. Only two of them have 10% free space. The rest - from 5% to 8%. There are no user files in the memory of access points.
3 hAP ac2. Everyone has similar problems with free space.

On all devices, version 7.5 was installed via netinstall, then the usual update.

I've been running wave2 at home since 7.7 with no complaints on a 4011 and an Audience, although I wasn't really using the 2.4ghz on the 4011 so I didn't really miss it.

If I did need the 2.4ghz I would be tempted to pick up a 2.4ghz radio that was compatible and switch out the one in the 4011 for that one.

On rb4011, with 2 wans interfaces, a wireguard tunnel is using both links very like as round robin balancing. Pretty weird.
Restored to 7.7rc5.

"error while running customized default configuration script: no such item"

Any way to fix this? Downgrading back to 7.7 stable, didn't fix it.

Yes. No. I do not want to netinstall as that's what I just did 5 days ago with this new box using 7.7. It's a lot of efforts for bugs that should be fixed by MikroTik.

Newer ticket SUP-105353, and Mikrotik reads this forum as well.
3. This is a new mayor release, so new function can be added. Until fixed, I will ask for MT to do some thing with it.

It may not be an importante function for you, but if you run MT in a larger scale, logging is important.

in general called SD-WAN. This is implemented in v7 using ZeroTier.

In the past this was often caused by renaming wlan interfaces in your local config (combined with programming errors in MikroTik's scripts).
E.g. when you rename wlan1 to wlan-2ghz because that is clearer to you, it will cause such failures.
Don't know if that mistake (of referring directly to wlan1 in scripts instead of something like [ find default-name=wlan1 ] ) still hasn't been fixed.

MT is currently missing a big point. Apart from routing features present in v6 that are not available on v7... they advertise the L3-HW that is BROKEN!
I have since 7.4 a support file, that is not fixed and they dindt give me any ETA for the fix.
We need every one hour to stop and restart the l3-hw engine on the CRS317. They are NOT READY for the isp business, but they ignore it.
SUP-95367 is still unfixed.

I suggest that you enable memory graphing and watch after a while what is the maximum amount of money consumed in your setup, and set the ramdisk so that it occupies less than the space that is always free.
I have added a ramdisk of size 800M on my RB4011 which has 1GB of RAM and typically 120MB in use.
Note that a ramdisk does not immediately occupy the space allocated to it. That happens only when it is filled with files.

I agree that it is a mess and needs improvement, but I fear that making any change to how it is now will cause an even bigger mess in existing installations than we have now.
Probably things that could be changed with relatively low impact:
- add a new type of prefix, something like "err######" which is unique for every possible message in the system, where the ###### is a permanently assigned error number documented on the help site. allows matching of a single message type that you want to log (or not log).
- add a "regexp matching" capability in the log rules, that matches on the message content
- fix the remote logging so that the prefixes can (optionally) be sent in the BSD format, maybe via some way to add a script in a remote logging definition that can alter the logged message as per the operator preference.

No need to use bad words. Many people do use logging in various form, not only Splunk.
And following standard are always at better way to success.

@pe1chl
I do agree that a change may not be a good option. Add an extra option called for example rfc 5424 that would give the new and more standard format. This way user can select what to do and not break all the old stuff.

Agree with @pe1chl. Specifically, the prefix is only thing that helps find things today. So without the prefixes in remote/BSD logging, it's extremely difficult to search or read even since there is 0 context.

I'd add "don't use multi-line log entries" (DHCP being the worst oftener): one event, one entry.

Yes, I know that. That's why I am not really happy with the change. I want to place backup files and exports on tmpfs, generated from scripts.

Well, looks like using a third of total memory works on all devices... Probably using that then.

new "rose-storage"…ARM, ARM64, Tile and x86

Several comments:

  1. The clients should be added to MIPS, since they need network storage the worst of all machine types. I don't care whether it's SMB, NFS, iSCSI, or nVME-over-TCP, all four, or some subset, but something would be welcome. I can live without the servers; pressing a hEX into service as an iSCSI server with its piddlin' USB 2.0 port would be mondo silly.
  2. All of the "*-address" fields should be renamed to just "address". You can't use them together. You know the type of address from the "type" parameter already.
  3. If you don't do that, then you've at least got a copy-paste error to fix: "add type=nfs iscsi-address=192.168.1.1"
  4. Those wishing for RouterOS to become a competitive NAS using these features are dreaming, given its fixed RAID levels. There's nothing like the flexible RAID levels pioneered by Drobo, then copied by Synology, QNAP, Lacie, etc. There are uses for DIY fixed RAID, but in a world where we've got things like TrueNAS Core, I don't see this feature taking over any significant slice of the NAS market.

Because of the great modularity options that RouterOS provides you can't fit that package on such little storage.

Any MIPS devices with more than 16MB of storage?

With a little sorting on the product matrix, I count 32 products. Compressing it to product families, we get:

  • BaseBox 2, 5, 6
  • CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN
  • CRS125-24G-1S-2HnD-IN
  • KNOT LR8 & LR9 kits
  • mANTBox 15s & 19s; mANTBox 2 12s
  • NetBox 5
  • NetMetal 5 series
  • QRT 5 series
  • RB2011 series
  • RB911, 912, 922, and 951 series
  • SXT SA5 series

I don't know how to quickly verify which ones are both in production and have ready stock, but there are some familiar pieces on that list such as the venerable CRS109 and RB2011.

you can't fit that package on such little storage.

My understanding is that MIPS boxes have under 2 MB of flash free these days. I looked at the ARM package, and it's nearly 4 MB. However, I did say it should be pared down to the clients alone. That might be enough, and if not, then you take the next step and remove them in fattest-to-slimmest order until you get under the limit. I suspect "nVME-over-TCP" is the slimmest, but whatever it turns out to be, one is better than none.

The storage package needs a lot more doc. It seems that it is possible to mount an iSCSI volume, and to export an NFS volume, but is it also possible to mount an NFS shared directory from another system? I do not see the parameter to specify the server path. As in:
mount -t nfs server:/path /mountpoint
type nfs and mountpoint are clear.

may you elaborate little bit further?
*) x86 - fixed SR-IOV support for Intel X710 series NIC;

we use them and the only issue is the fact that we must use only auto about cpu irq interface queue. Is it something about?
Same problem here.Only read-only irq for xxv710 nic.

yes and the strange think is that one queue is used a lot more the others, loading manly one core.

Re: v7.8beta [testing] is released!

Just tried rose-storage. Using 2 SATA-III SSDs inside RB1100, I can at least create a "mirrored disks" (RAID 1). So that part works!

But noticed several things:

1. Files window in winbox still shows a "sata1-part1", even though that doesn't exist. The raid volume does show up e.g. raid1-part1 okay however.

2a. Setting the slot= on a raid partition, doesn't persist reboot. e.g. I'd set the slot=disk1, but after reboot comes back as default raid1-part1.
2b. Similar nfs-export and smb-export also don't seem to persist reboot.

3. Could NOT mount RouterOS ROSE disks using NFS Mac after using nfs-export=yes - tried various things: Finder using URL, Terminal using mount, using both :/ and :/raid1-part1 in path – nothing obvious seem to work and docs less helpful here.

4. The relationship with existing /ip/smb is unclear. I do NOT have /ip/smb enabled, but did try smb-export=yes in /disks. Similar issues to NFS - couldn't figure out any way to mount. Only thing that got close was if I add smb-share=/disk1, then MacOS prompts for a password when using smb://<MT_IP>/disk1 - but neither using "Guest" or "Registered User" with ROS creds failed so no mount. If you set smb-user=/smb-password=, then it doesn't even prompt for a password on MacOS and doesn't work either - but those seem more to mount a SMB volume on RouterOS (I'm was trying to share the ROSE disk as SMB share)

Basically I have a working mirrored disk, that cannot be renamed or shared. RAID alone is still useful, but clearly some better docs and/or bug fixes might be needed...

I would wait until they actually releases any SAN/NAS hardware, or else it's pointless (since it exists so many NAS platforms for generic x86 already)
in general called SD-WAN. This is implemented in v7 using ZeroTier.
Thats properitary and requires a central controller somewhere, and can't co-exist with regular routing.

Small nuance:
NO as it is right now.
But it has been stated the possibility might come in the future that both legacy and wave2 capsman could be integrated in one solution. ETA ? Crystal ball needed ...

That's a bit sad, since i have 6 non Wave 2 devices and two Wave 2 (AC3), that will now be replaced by RB5009 and left as an AP. So no way to put them on the same network. It is what it is.

You can still put them on the same network.
But you will need 2 different CAPSMAN controllers for the time being: one for legacy, one for wave2 (and if you also want redundancy, multiply by 2).
Like you say: it is what it is.

Even with APs within the same capsman constellation, there is no seamless switch.
I believe you need roaming parts of the wifi-specs for that to happen. It's being worked on but not fully implemented yet (as it is now to my knowledge, only within same AP = from 2.4 to 5Ghz and vice versa if same SSID is used. Unless I missed something in the latest versions in that context.).

Not realy sure. When i tested this with PING from my phone i moved from one AP to another and PING didn't drop inbetween. But sometimes i notice, that phone doesn't switch to another AP when it should. Especialy this is noticable when doing WiFi calling and call drops.

capsman currently doesn't improve roaming experience of wireless clients. capsman2 might (and hopefully will in the future). If you configure APs with same security profile (replicate it on APs directly or in other capsmans) and make sure resulting wireless interfaces are part of same L2 network (e.g. served by same DHCP server without resorting to DHCP relay or anything similarly redundant), then client roaming experience will be the same whether APs are provisioned by same capsman or if they are configured individually.

Eitehr way, it's up to client to decide when it wants to switch, newer standards (802.11 r/k/v; only /r is implemented in wifiwave2 driver and works between radios of same AP) assist client by providing more information (k/v) and by allowing faster registration to target radio (r). When everything works as designed, then switch is very fast and user normally doesn't notice it.

... but it will never be as fast as with some competing products that provide "seamless roaming", i.e. the entire installation operates as a single AP MAC address on a single channel.

No, really. There are manufacturers that offer a WiFi where there is only a single AP MAC for the controller, all APs listen on the same frequency and the same MAC, the traffic they receive is forwarded to the controller together with a signal strength value (RSSI), and the controller keeps the location of the strongest received signal so when they need to transmit data it can be sent via the AP where the signal is strongest.
With such a system there is no real roaming, it is just like a large single-frequency diversity system. There are absolutely no interruptions due to roaming.
But of course the fact that there is a single channel can limit the performance. However, more modern systems can operate several channels in parallel each with this system, so the users will be distributed over different channels.

It feels to me that, at least at this stage, it's meant more for router-to-router use, particularly for containers on diskless devices. I couldn't get a router to mount an iSCSI target from my TrueNAS box. I tried NFS and Samba from the 2116 to my Mac too. I couldn't get anything to work the way one would expect to another computer.

I then loaded 7.8b2 on a hAP AC3 and connected it to the 2116 using NFS and it worked immediately. However, when trying to connect the hAP to the 2116 via iSCSI, the hAP just hung. Now, even after a reboot, it hangs when trying to export or print the disk config. I can't even remove it, so I'll have to reset it and try again.

[Edit] Turns out NFS works with Linux and macOS, provided you have the correct options: viewtopic.php?p=979643#p979643

Hi,
I appreciate storage management but at the moment Im not able to use SAMBA on 7.7 stable with my camers HIKVISION: I have already sent (SUP-104510) but no solution yet. I have hAP AX3 and I would like to use it as SAMBA server for my cameras but I have to keep old ASUS router with 1GB HDD to be able save vidoes from Cameras.

MIKROTIK PLEASE TAKE THIS SUP SERIOUSLY THERE ARE MILIONS OF HIKVISION CAMERAS AROUND THE GLOBE.

sudo mkdir /Volumes/2116/
sudo mount -t nfs -o vers=4,hard,bg,intr,resvport,rw 192.168.x.x:/nvme1 /Volumes/2116/
I also got it to auto mount the share:
# add to /etc/auto_master if you don't already have it
/-			auto_nfs	-nobrowse,nosuid

# create /etc/auto_nfs, then add this line for Catalina and later; 2116 is the name of my share, change it to what you want
# nvme1 is my disk's name on the 2116
/System/Volumes/Data/../Data/Volumes/2116	-fstype=nfs,vers=4,hard,bg,intr,resvport,rw  nfs://192.168.x.x/nvme1/

I got the NFS mount working. However, there apparently are no error messages. So when I configured something incorrectly, it just silently accepted the "add" and then in showing the status the nfs line would not show the M status. I would have expected an error in the log indicating the failed mount, but there wasn't any.

I got one of these for my lab CCR2116 (Orico M.2 NVMe to SATA Expansion Card):
61kz--cHiLL._AC_SL1200_.jpg
Here's what it looks like installed (top is off, sitting in rack):
IMG_0015.jpg
I hooked up a Kingston 256GB SSD that I had in an enclosure and powered it via a separate power supply.
Flags: B - BLOCK-DEVICE; M, F - FORMATTING; p - PARTITION
Columns: SLOT, MODEL, SERIAL, INTERFACE, SIZE, FREE, FS, RAID-MASTER
#     SLOT               MODEL             SERIAL             INTERFACE                 SIZE             FREE  FS    RAID

Exported it via NFS, mounted the NFS share on my Mac, and with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test, I'm getting 136MB/s write, 496MB/s read (specs claim 555MB/s read, 510MB/s write).

I've ordered a 6-bay SSD 2.5" chassis to hook up to this thing to experiment with RAID and with exporting drives and/or partitions to diskless routers for containers, particularly my 2004's with 4GB of RAM.

Now if I could only find a way to route those cables straight out a whole in the back and put the lid back on...

for us 7.8beta2 still has critical pppoe server issues:
- after 48h the pppoe-servers (more 10.000 servers on the box) crashe and let the dynamic pppoe queues go invalid (reboot needed)
- some time the dynamic pppoe-client interface doesn't go running (you can manually remove them and let the client router to reauthneticate)

We get things like a disk manager, instead of some long awaited fixes in the basic functionality of a router.

Thats is a development I dont really like. There are TONS of bug in basic stuff and they come up with docker and some kind of strogae manager.

I had something more elegant in mind, like a drill and hole saw. But the plugs are also too tall for the lid. Right-angle SATA ends would work for one or two, but I wonder if they have any that come off sideways…

Those that are frustrated with the seemingly useless features being released need to realize that most of this stuff they’re “adding” comes with Linux anyway. The other stuff we want (BFD et al) have to be written or rewritten.

While I agree there needs to be focus on high priority issues that we feel have long been overlooked (I miss BFD too), I wager there are several developers/development teams all working on different pieces of the stack. Some of it is harder to implement, some of it is super easy. I don’t expect the data center/devops guys to be BGP/BFD/SDN wizards, nor would I expect the GUI guys to be experts in embedded systems.

As a former CIO/CTO and now as a service provider and home user/tinkerer, I welcome it all. I’ve always considered RouterOS the Swiss Army Knife in this industry.

Those modules present in "rose-storage" are all modules that required just to be enabled in the linux kernel, and the MikroTik team added some options to control them. Everything else that isn't upstreamed in the kernel yet isn't that easy to add.

@sirbryan something like this [Startech Side Angle SATA cable]? Is there enough clearance for the cables to go off to the side?
Those are too tall for the lid, and they'd hit the heat sink shroud.

But these low-profile, lateral SATA cables should do the trick:

By now it becomes more like "WE determine how long you can do without BFD!". It has been a "work in progress" for a year and a half, and thus it cannot be explained by "it is a complex thing to make" anymore.
I wonder how many hundreds of man-hours the BFD feature has been estimated to take, and how many of those have already been spent.

Not specific to 7.8b2, but seems to affect it. Starting from v7.7, it seems the dns resolver has a memory leak that eats up all the Mikrotik memory until the RouterOS crash and reboots. Not all are affected, but all affected confirmed to be providing DNS services for client devices.

If you're running 7.8 and providing DNS services for your connected networks, watch out for your box memory usage! This is really bad specially for the low-memory spec models, but seems to affect a variety of different models. Those with more RAM will just take longer to crash and (luckly) reboot.

Bugs and things like BFD have no "enabled=yes" switch in RouterOS configuration files, sorry. It is easy to add some basic things, but there are complex things that need to be made from 0.
At this point the lack of BFD support is inexcusable. There is clear demand from users, it was previously implemented in RouterOS, it is implemented in competing stacks, and there are common situations for which no reasonable workaround exists. BFD is relatively simple compared with OSPF (though the v7 implementation of OSPF leaves a lot to be desired) so it is hard to understand why it is still missing and apparently receiving no attention whatsoever.

Is there even a plan to implement basic features like BFD? Is there anyone even working on this?

No core routing (BFD,EVPN, buggy VPN4) functionality for routers
Would be nice to have an alternative to hideously expensive Cisco/Juniper/Arista EVPN switches instead of relying on spanning-tree.

Sorry Normis, but writing nonsense like "there is no enabled=true for BFD" after 18+ months of claiming to work on it is just pathetic.
If 18 months is not enough for MikroTik to bring BFD from ROS6 to ROS 7, probably serious routing is to complex for MikroTik and you should focus on SOHO routers.

Especially now as there are expensive beasts like CCR2116. Clearly made for large table routing with l3hw offload.
Why would I buy such an expensive box with bug ridden l3hw offload, plenty of IPv6 issues and no BFD? Our CCR2116 gathers dust in the lab as it is is clearly not fit for its intended purposes with current state of ROS7.

I start to think CCR2116 is not available anywhere because MT is embarrassed by the state of serious routing features in ROS7.
What about having different ROS versions for SOHO boxes and serious routers? So one team can work on nerdy-stuff like containers and similar and another team can work on finally fixing and implementing basic routing stuff for CCR2x16 boxes?

Agree. This issue is upgrade blocker cannot migrate due to it to ROS 7.

I tend to agree. I can see that making RouterOS interface for mdadm/mkfs/iscsid/etc.. is low hanging fruit.. but why?

No one in their right mind buys a $995 router to play with containers. You buy a Mini-PC or some second hand Dell/HPE to play with virtualization and containers.

<Raises hand> Um, I have six 2116's and just bought two more.</hand down> I also have a farm of NUCs, Mac Mini's, and Mac Pro 5,1's running ESXi or macOS, backed by TrueNAS storage.

For the same money I spent on my NUCs, the 2116 has more cores, similar RAM & storage, 40Gbps of connectivity into a Layer 3 switch with 16 ports, redundant power supplies, all in a rack mount case. And it can switch and route a heck of a lot more data.

Until containers came out for MikroTik, I didn't really have any experience with them, since most of my apps run on dedicated hosts or in VM's. Now I'm in the process of migrating much of what I ran on my Mac Pro ESXi host at home office onto my 2116, allowing me to save power and space and eventually decommission my Xeon servers.

With all the complaints about The DUDE dying or lacking in development (and the fact that it's stuck on Windows only), I can build or deploy the NMS of my choice, including sensors, on any number of RouterOS devices, with modern interfaces and customizable code.

"DMVPN" is such a killer feature in the enterprise world. VyOS has support for it since years.

in general called SD-WAN. This is implemented in v7 using ZeroTier.
This will be my last post on this as it's getting off-topic, but ZeroTier is a pretty basic SD-WAN and is in no way equivalent to the capabilities, flexibility, and scalability of SD-WAN from vendors like Cisco-Viptela, Palo Alto-CloudGenix,VMware-VeloCloud, Fortinet SD-WAN, etc.

Cisco DMVPN, HP DVPN, and Fortinet ADVPN can be used in a non-SD-WAN configuration/context as they predate SD-WAN and aren't a requirement for SD-WAN. For example, Fortinet SD-WAN can be used in conjunction with Fortinet ADVPN or without depending on your use cases. As another example, Cisco-Viptela/IOS-XE SD-WAN is an entirely separate feature/product from DMVPN.

ZeroTier is sufficient for some basic home/SOHO/small business deployments/use cases--that's about it. MikroTik + ZeroTier is no way a substitute for DMVPN or real SD-WAN.

mpvpn, meshvpn, sd-wan... same, same different name. I've used many of them thus the core functionality (l2/l3, end2end encryption, etc) and performance is more or less exactly the same.

What differs is deployment, administration and how well they jack into repective brands legacy system. I'd say the zt admin interface and api would fit any size as the client preparation process is the key factor that makes the difference in how well a large scale deployment will work (as always).

MT will never play any role in any SDWAN unless the boxes can understand & detect (many) application and steer accordingly.

Well, for one, MT doesn't drive the sd-wan market, they just adopted and implemented an existing open solution. Please feel free to elaborate what you mean by "unless the boxes can understand & detect (many) applications and steer accordingly." Btw, since this topic has nothing to do with v7.8Beta, please continue this discussion in another thread. I'll join you there in that case.

despite being OT but SDWAN does not have anything to do with application detection.

Of course it has! The selling point of SDWAN: it can replace great quality leased lines / MPLS by redundant cheap Internet uplinks. To achieve this you want to measure the quality of your cheap links and send important stuff over the better lines, while sending the rest of it over the worse lines.
You should also be able to direct for example every o365 directly to the cloud and not passing it through your central hub. Believe me, while this is possible to achieve manually, you just want the box to "know" what o365 traffic is.

Some SDWAN solutions can detect protocols, hostnames & applications and take decision what path it should take. It's great for it's purpose, but often proprietary.

<Raises hand> Um, I have six 2116's and just bought two more.</hand down> I also have a farm of NUCs, Mac Mini's, and Mac Pro 5,1's running ESXi or macOS, backed by TrueNAS storage.

Sound really affordable to use Mac's as VMware hosts.

It can't be that heavy workloads if you can replace them with some ARM boxes with 16G of RAM.

SDN means something different to everyone (to me, it's a buzzword for not following the standard/RFCs and ignoring ISO layer seperation). But "SDN" is not claimed to be supported by v7.8beta, so it's not a bug or regression.
Please keep this forum topic strictly related to this particular RouterOS release.
Mikrotik started a different thread soliciting feedback on the topic a while back,: viewtopic.php?t=186352
that seems better place for this SDN discussion.

That is not something a generic router can do. You need to buy a special box that has a maintenance contract to provide you with the dynamic information required for that.

It was fix of issue
that MT send reflected route back to sender with own self as nexthop . Due to it sender installed reflected route which it got from reflector and bgp session was broken . In moment when bgp session broken it again established bgp session and again send own routes which were reflected back to sender. it was binded with MP_REACH_NLRI
This is a copy of my support ticket i create to fix this issue
ROS 7 ibgp rr - ROS 6 ibgp .

Ros 6 establish connection and send update (MP_REACH_NLRI) with NLRI nexthop self ip (for example 10.29.193.134 )to ROS 7 RR

ROS 7 RR send back MP_REACH_NLRI with own self ip (for example 10.29.192.19 ) address and of course it also not care about propagate flag which also not right.

due to it ROS 6 reply MP_UNREACH_NLRI and ROS 7 reflect it back as well .

After it whole cycle repeat endless.

I attached wireshark capture , sipout from hub. and some screens which illustrate issue. 1 screen from ROS7 which show setting and 2 screens from ROS 6 where visible endless looped updates and export / import vrf rd.

The sarcasm does little to bolster your point. Those machines were made in 2009/2012 and ran through their useful macOS lifetime years ago.

Who said anything about a heavy workload? Your argument is that "nobody in their right mind" buys MikroTik to experiment with containers. I'm telling you I just did, for all the reasons listed previously. For my purposes, the CCR2116 is a better value than an i7 NUC.

I've been doing this for 25 years. Hardware/Software vendors see a much bigger picture than what 20-30 vocal people on an Internet forum thread see. In the case of containers (7.6) and storage (7.8), exposing more of the Linux ecosystem in RouterOS makes each box that much more powerful, and makes customers like me want to buy more of their product for additional purposes. And the work one (or two) people are doing to create a wrapper around existing things isn't taking anybody away from the more pressing problems with BGP, BFD, etc.

To bring it back on topic, I have one 2116 in production running 7.8b2, and it's working fine. The 2116 and AX3 in the lab are also working fine. No problems to report (yet).

What is a generic router? Even Mikrotik routers aren't "generic".

FortiNet FortiGate firewalls can do NGFW, IPS, UTP, SD-WAN, BGP and OSPF. And SD-WAN doesn't require a license or maintenance contract.

Cisco routers can do SD-WAN now too; it's an additional license but it's the same platforms. And the can both identify Office365. What does generic mean again?

You are mixing up L7 firewalls and IDPS (intrusion detection and prevention systems) with routers. And the way you throw around acronyms, it's hard to tell if you even know the difference.

All types of application awareness are becoming increasingly difficult to achieve these days due to web-based applications and end-to-end encryption, you are left with just IP addresses and port numbers to play with. And for the same reason you can forget about "dynamic application routing" based on L7 filtering.

MT is currently missing a big point. Apart from routing features present in v6 that are not available on v7... they advertise the L3-HW that is BROKEN!
I have since 7.4 a support file, that is not fixed and they dindt give me any ETA for the fix.
We need every one hour to stop and restart the l3-hw engine on the CRS317. They are NOT READY for the isp business, but they ignore it.
SUP-95367 is still unfixed.
Hi, can you elaborate a bit more on the scenario where you're facing this issue? I was considering to use CRS317 for a basic L3 routing with OSPF ...

thank you for phrasing that out the way you did - that was the point why i mentioned SDWAN does not have to do anything with app-detection in it's basic implementation.
that is more for IDPS topics as you wrote.

SDWAN in its core functionallity mostly is a deployment and configuration/administration system based on overlay a software (mostly a central controler) over a underlying L2/L3 network for the most part. everything else are additional "features" to a SDWAN/SDN deployment/setup

... enough off-topic -> SDN stuff over there to be discussed :-D viewtopic.php?t=186352

And for the same reason you can forget about "dynamic application routing" based on L7 filtering.
It will not be long before "destination port number" will be a constant that is always 443. We can get a new version of TCP that omits it.
When you have a VPN where you want to route certain traffic (like realtime voice) over different tunnels than other traffic (like large file transfers) you might get away with identifying traffic during the session setup, using techniques like the L7 matcher and the TLS host matcher, then mark the connection and route it differently. But that has no use when routing Office365, where your decision is not "which tunnel between branches do we select" but rather "which internet connection do we select for the outgoing connection".
By the time you have identified an outgoing TCP connection to port 443 as being for Office365, it is too late to re-route it to another outgoing line.
The only thing you can do is have address lists for Microsoft servers known to be used for Office365. And that is dynamic data that has to be updated.

Application awareness like Cisco's Application Intelligence Engine and similar solutions are pure MBS based on some marketing directors wet dream long way back in time when they came up with the acronym NGFW. They all depend on DPI and similar obsolete techniques that will soon be totally useless for obvious reasons.

Can you guys please update your docs regarding MP-BGP? I still cannot get VPNv4 to work with either 7.7 or 7.8beta2, I can learn the routes from the route reflector, however traffic does not effectively flow. Either I am making some configuration mistake, or this still does not work.

Thanks in advance.

What shit ? Please be more specific or nobody will be able to know what you mean.
I have mine since yesterday, upgraded to 7.8beta and I can easily get around 600mbs with Galaxy S20 (which I think is pretty decent).
On ac3 with wave2 it was low 500.

I had to explicitly disable fastpath for VPNv4 to work.

I would like to leave my two cents, in defense of Mikrotik:

Keeping these discussions on topic, obfuscates developers to keep track of what is really needed. Making a complaint I think is valid and positive, but holding a discussion is not. Preferable to call for a new topic and the most interesting for MT to listen too.

SDWAN, IDPS , NGFW or things like that. I don't see MT as a business rule. We shouldn't have any kind of hope.

Now a little disappointment:

Routing is MT's business and the main focus should be on improving and delivering new functions, with their fastest possible fixes. As much as I like new functions, like ROSE, Containers, Wireguard... It gives me the feeling that the MT is not keeping the focus. As the resolution and improvement of:
BFD fixed
BGP-VPNv4-VRF RR fixed
EVPN
MPLS Fast Reroute
BGP Multipath
L3HW off loading that is compatible with MLAG and VRRP
L3HW off loading for VXLAN
L3HW off loading for QinQ
OSPF improvements
IPsec Virtual Tunnel Interface

I think that such requirements already satisfies almost all of the public, as it opens up potential possibilities for us.

Improvement of the wireless network, I also support it, I see it as a business rule for you too, but secondary. I see such more enterprise features like:
band steering,
roaming,
wireless bridging for wifiwave2,

Re: v7.8beta [testing] is released!

Sat Jan 28, 2023 11:08 pm

To add something more constructive to all the complaints:
I'm happy with the state of ROS 7.x on RB5009. For heavy SOHO and small branch applications, they work reliable with not much complaints except some SFP+ module issues solvable by using other SFPs. Also Docker is appreciated to run services like pi-hole, VoIP/SIP proxies or small local syslog servers. Same for Wireguard.

But CRS2x16 boxes mainly make sense for large/full table routing with 40/100Gbit. For such applications L3HW and BFD/OSPF issues are dealbreakers and having containers, Wireguard and ROSE does not compensate for anything.

Covering everything from hAP to CRS2x16 with one ROS seems to be a far stretch.
This is why I feel it might be worth to considering splitting up ROS into different versions for SOHO/CEP and large scale routers with different feature priorities.

hAP ax3 wifi is very slow and unstable (but it's also on stable ROS):
viewtopic.php?p=980696&hilit=hap+ax3#p980696
Looks like it's bridge related. When routing and natting, throughput is stable in both directions.

hAP ax2 & 3 have major stability and performance issues since their release for at least a few people.

But I am very glad you seem to be not affected .

To add something on what needs to be improved IPV6 fasttrack is a must and should be at least with significant priority and VPDN (LAC) for serious consideration

what are the odds in the next beta code drop the elusive BFD feature is in? :)

Do VPLS tunnels work in your configuration?

This may seem like a stupid question, but I'm just trying to work backward with you. There are a few non-obvious changes to MPLS in v7 and if VPLS is not working it will help to pinpoint the problem

For one, it doesn't help if you generalize.
The forum would be swamped with problem reports if this was the case.
Secondly, start a separate thread with full exported config and as much surrounding detail as possible. Unless i missed it, i have not seen that yet in your other thread.
Also create a support ticket with supout of your device when the issue occurs.

Well made points.

The market is already flooded with SDWAN, IDS, NGFW stuff, and it's probably very hard to gain any foot there because those who want's this are willing to pay for it.

But RouterOS is the only alternative I know besides the "giants" that does advanced BGP, BGP-VPNv4, MPLS, VPLS, L3HW etc. And it some extent managed Wifi-solutions (the alternative is UniFi). This with efficent/affordable hardware is their strongest place.

Yes and no. We run IOS-XE on both ISR 1000 boxes and our 25/100G Catalyst. But the software image is about 800MB. Not the "within 16MB" principle that RouterOS has.

Note that MikroTik in fact is moving in the opposite direction. In v6 there still were separate packages for things like wireless, hotspot, capsman, mpls, bgp, etc.
In v7 all is put together in a single right-for-everyone package. So instead of differentiation we have movement towards a single version.
I can understand how that desire occurred, because there were more and more packages with cross dependencies and the installer could not deal with that.
I would have no problem with a system package that includes what was in e.g. dhcp, ppp, security, ipv6 and advanced-tools because those were all mutually dependent and/or the situation where one was not installed made operation of the other more complicated.
But I really do not understand why we are all forced to have stuff like wireless, hotspot, capsman, mpls and bgp on each and every device.

For those wondering where MikroTik is going with all of this, especially CCR2000 and beyond...

From Cisco: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/ ... 42415.html (emphasis mine)

Cisco IOS XE 16.12.1 introduces native Docker container support on certain models of Catalyst 9000 switches. This enables users to build and bring their own applications without additional packaging. Developers don’t have to reinvent the wheel by rewriting the applications every time there is an infrastructure change. Once packaged within Docker, the applications will work within any infrastructure that supports docker containers...

From Arista: https://www.arista.com/en/products/eos/ ... ogrammable

EOS offers the ability to write scripts and load applications directly onto the Linux operating system and to run these applications as guest VMs. Features of EOS extensibility include:
  • Installation without modification of third-party software for Linux
  • Scripting and Linux shell-level access for automation
  • Programmable at all layers: Linux kernel, hardware forwarding tables, switch configuration and CLI, switch control plane as well as management layer
  • Support for running Docker containers directly on the switch

I applaud and welcome the fact that we also get it on the little ARM/ARM64 boxes. In the coming months, out of the hundreds of RouterOS devices I have installed in the field, more will be using newer features like Wireguard/ZeroTier and simple containers than MPLS/BGP/OSPF/etc.

You know what else also those Cisco/etc. routers can do? OSPF, BGP, BFD, and other basic routing protocols that we rightly expect a router to support. I do not doubt that there are legitimate use-cases for containers, but it remains secondary to core routing features -- especially on machines with support for L3 offloading and other routing/switching specific hardware features.

That is not necessarily the right thing, BGP signalled VPLS tunnels are created dynamically and there may be a lot of them in any given bridge. It is not clear to me how static names would even work in that case.

What would really help is the ability to specify a VLAN for BGP-signalled VPLS. The need is somewhat niche, but I have found myself resorting to all kinds of brittle workarounds when it has come up.

I know, we have those at work. But using $9,000 switches for hosting containers is insane when you have a working VMware envoriment. The price difference GB/CPU per $ is astronomical. It only makes sense for a branch/edge site that needs a on-site agent of some kind (security, proxy, monitoring, authentication, etc.)

Beside running services, I can also see value in Docker for testing and debugging: Temporary starting up a minimal Debian or Ubuntu image on a remote router to run tools like flent, cacti or nagios from the router's remote point of view could come in handy.

As replied on other thread:
went over 7.6, 7.7, 7.8beta using Samsung S20: all give for me the same figures on my devices (obviously with some variation when doing multiple test runs but everything falls consistently in the same fork).
Nothing special on that device (just unboxed it, wanted to toy first with AX before moving one of the home AC3's to this one).

The mix of location has given me headache several times.
Example:
Cli /user
Gui System->Users

Cli /interface/bridge
Gui Bridge

Cli /routing/route
Gui ip -> Routes

It may have been done to get to it more quickly?
Name should be equal and same with path.

The ability to define a VLAN for dynamically created interfaces using VPLS within a bridge would be very useful for our implementations.

I have the same problem with my own build, all newly pushed to docker hub are the same error. if you pull from other linux os and upload to routeros, it works.

Same behavior here: not working on RouterOS, but on macOS with Docker it works fine.

I've opened a ticket (SUP-105409) but it was closed by MikroTik as "not our bug".

I also reported this to the maintainers of Zabbix images on Docker Hub (https://github.com/zabbix/zabbix-docker/issues/1049) and they said to wait next release. I'm waiting to see if they will be able to fix this.

No wonder with error message
16:43:07 container,info,debug error response getting manifests: 404
which indicates http error 404 (not found). That's a problem on remote side (github) and if things worked previously it may mean some necessary platform-specific files are missing.

belongs-to works fine for me! you should not use /ip/route/print but rather /routing/route/print.
my mistake :(

It would be great if OVPN would get static key support soon. Can you please tell me what's the problem implementing this?
Well, the "official" OpenVPN version 2.6.0 just released has dropped the support for static key, so that would be one possible reason for not bothering with it anymore...

Yes, but they write: static key mode (non-TLS) is no longer considered "good and secure enough" for today's requirements. Use TLS mode instead. If deploying a PKI CA is considered "too complicated", using --peer-fingerprint makes TLS mode about as easy as using --secret.”

But Mikrotik does not support TLS authentication at all...

MT will never play any role in any SDWAN unless the boxes can understand & detect (many) application and steer accordingly.
Ask three network engineers what "SDWAN" is and you will get at least three different answers.

While I agree with many of the flaws, point #3 is generally referred to as SDWAN and is implemented in RoS using ZeroTier.
Sure, so long as you're using ARM. Three times now we have deployed Zerotier for a customer and *not* used CHR for the soft-router element because it doesn't support Zerotier.

Is it just me? Do others also experiencing the same? I didn't see any issue on ARM devices. The screenshot is from a CHR.

The certificate CRL download doesn't work when only the DOH is used.

That is the distribution point for Let's Encrypt R3 certificate revocation list.

Open your browser, point it to a website secured by Let's encrypt and see the certificate details...

It's all about money: Our software solution provider says OpenVPN connection is free, IPsec connection is 410 Euro one-time-fee and 25 EUR monthly fee.
Sometimes you can't control both VPN endpoints....

"Solution provider" that offers OpenVPN only with static keys? That is pretty sad... they will not be happy finding that they need to point their users to obsolete software from now on, I guess...
In this sense I am a "solution provider" myself and my OpenVPN server (which is not running on RouterOS but plain Linux) works with the standard easy-rsa certificate system.
I don't know if RouterOS can connect to it by now, it used to be not possible because it uses UDP only, and users with MikroTik routers get L2TP/IPsec or GRE tunnels instead.

.
RouterOS version 7 is now capable of using UDP OpenVPN connections. There are still some limitations, as it seems to use a proprietary implementation of OpenVPN. But it can do TCP and also UDP on RoSv7. RoSv6 is really limited to TCP connections only.

I know that... there are many config parameters and also features that could make it fail. Compression, push of routes and other parameters, etc.
That is why I mention I did not test it. There probably will be some reason why it fails.

Not specific to 7.8b2, but seems to affect it. Starting from v7.7, it seems the dns resolver has a memory leak that eats up all the Mikrotik memory until the RouterOS crash and reboots. Not all are affected, but all affected confirmed to be providing DNS services for client devices.

If you're running 7.8 and providing DNS services for your connected networks, watch out for your box memory usage! This is really bad specially for the low-memory spec models, but seems to affect a variety of different models. Those with more RAM will just take longer to crash and (luckly) reboot.

me2, dns cache can't be freed though I flush dns cache since v7.7 stable. (tested on hap ac2 and RB4011)

I've opened a ticket (SUP-105409) but it was closed by MikroTik as "not our bug".

No wonder with error message
16:43:07 container,info,debug error response getting manifests: 404
which indicates http error 404 (not found). That's a problem on remote side (github) and if things worked previously it may mean some necessary platform-specific files are missing.
Yeah, I figured out what the issue was.. I tried to build my own docker image and I couldn't get anything but 404 when I tried to pull the image to the Mikrotik. The issue is that the new Docker buildx uploads images in this OCI format. You'll also find that if you do `docker inspect <image name>` it will say the image isn't found because the inspect command also does not support this format. (funny right?) It's related to this issue: https://github.com/moby/moby/issues/43126 You can fix your own images by following this: https://github.com/docker/buildx/issues ... 1378538197

As for vendor images, you'll need to pull them, save them as a tar and upload them to the Mikrotik to get them to work.

Mikrotik will need to update their docker daemon to support this new manifest format. I opened a ticket and provided them the information.

Perhaps - but I just reset my hAP mini (which I only use for testing) to no-default-configuration, logged into it and disabled "IPv6 forward" so that it gets an address from the RA. The address appears, but default route does not, but the default route is actually there because it can ping the IPv6 address for ipv6.google.com.

It doesn't work on my hAP ac either. If it is some other factor in the setup, it must be something about the RA itself that it doesn't like, preventing it from installing the default route for some reason.

I did not have IPv6 forwarding enabled on my test router, I use IPv6 only for a potential tunnel there, but after enabling it it still works.
The router gets an address and default router from another MikroTik that is running 6.49.7 and it looks like it is all working fine.

Not sure it "output a string", but it does "returns the command's output" now, instead of some execution ID in previous versions.
[admin@MikroTik] > :global x [:execute ":put \"test\""]
[admin@MikroTik] > put $x
test

But previously this would return immediately and was non-blocking. My only concern is that :execute used be asynchronous, but now code in execute can theoretically block a script in 7.8beta3:
:global z [:execute ":while (1) do={:put here; :delay 1s}"]
What the reason for the change? I've always thought :execute is a background operation, while [:parse] was for the foreground, so I'm just not sure how this change is useful...

I wouldn't say explained. :execute has worked for years the same way – it does NOT wait for a return value, and that will break some existing scripts people use.

Other ways to solve whatever issue in this telegram script than changing core functions in the scripting language IMO.

The ROSE documentation tells about rsync support.
Is there any information how to use it?
Also, will ROSE be available with final 7.8 (asking because of experiences with container in the past) ?

dksoft - We will see about that... New packages are included in stable versions when we can consider them "stable". At the moment we can not promise that ROSE-storage will be included in v7.8, but we will do our best in order to make that happen. Of course, even if it will not be released with 7.8, it will be back in 7.9beta releases.

This problem started with netinstalled 7.8beta2. I have repeatedly written on the forum and created a ticket SUP-105306. This bug is very easy to reproduce on the netinstalled 7.8beta2 and 7.8beta3.
Previously, my tickets with bugs (ipsec and certificate) were answered very quickly and competently by Emils Z. (great man) on bugtracker. But now the ticket SUP-105306 has no feedback at all.

ROSE is pretty cool. I tried Btrfs/ext4 but they all do not allow faster SFTP transfers than 14Mbyte/s on a CCR2216 with NVMe. The interface says PCIe 4x8 GT/s and 31.5 Gbps.
What is the reason for that slow transfer?

...
.............................

What does it cost you to add one parameter instead of change the default values?

To simulate previous behaviour:
{
:put "OK"
:put [:execute ":resolve notexist.sht" file=/useless_change_that_broke_the_balls]
:put "OK"
}

>"OK"
>*24
>"OK"

Is not better to keep same previous behaviour simply adding a parameter instead of change the logic?

pseudo code

{
:put "OK"
:put [:execute ":resolve notexist.sht" return-errors=yes]
# return-errors can be no (and must be the default for keep the integrity of what already exist) or yes (the new wanted feature)
:put "OK"
}

>OK
>failure: dns name does not exist
>OK
However this addition IS ABSOLUTELY USEFUL... I already have some ideas in mind...
But it's how it's implemented, which destroys all existing scripts (which use ":execute", of course), that is bulls–t.

Well, actually I would welcome a new command or option that runs any other command and catches its output in a string or array without printing it on the terminal!
Preferably also waiting for the command to complete so no need to check in a loop if it has completed.
But of course it is never a good idea to implement that by changing critical existing behavior.

I'm happy for any scripting "improvements", but there is a list that's a mile long, which this wasn't one. And, I'm not sure the effects of changing :execute were fully considered. The new. :execute logic may be useful, but potentially breaking existing scripts is a pretty heavy burden...
But it's how it's implemented, which destroys all existing scripts (which use ":execute", of course), that is bulls–t.
Perhaps an "as-string" or "wait=yes" or whatever option to trigger it. Or it be better still if somehow preserved types on the return (e.g. "as-value"). More say existing syntax, while more complex, would have solve the telegram script's need & if y'all were going to muck with scripting to make things easier, way better targets than changing :execute.

Well, I think the construct [/command parameters] should just return any output from the command without printing the same on the terminal.
So, for example, :set $variable [/command parameters] should assign the output to a variable, similar to what $(command) does in Unix shells.
In MikroTik scripting, it sometimes is possible to do that, sometimes it requires additional as-value parameter, and often it does not work at all.
It would be better to fix THAT, so no :execute is required at all.

:execuite on this case is not for skip the print... of print... command...
is for do some things that RouterOS do not do itself...

Hi Mikrotik team,

Can you be more specific about this? I'm having random phase 2 IKEv2 rekey issues to a Cisco device and I'd like to know if this is related. BTW I created ticket [SUP-106360] but no news so far.

Thank you!!

I'd say MT is pretty consistent with "as-value" (other than here), with only "/[cmd] get" implying as-value (since "print" is what you use at CLI instead of "get"). The only example where an as-value is missing that I recall is /tool/snmp-get (which I reported 2 years ago and remains unfixed).

To me, the CORE feature of :execute "code" is it a background operation, with no possible output and returns a "handle" to the task. I don't see why using some [:parse "..."] syntax wouldn't work instead of changing :execute?

when pasting DoH address in winbox, it does not show DoH options unless you click mouse button or change url by space or backspace.
also when i upgrade routeros my schedulers was gone some how deleted.

changing tmpfs max size does not affect immediately. if it is not possible to change it dynamically it is better to be seen as read only field after creation and cannot be set in cli.

Another big one is "count-only". You can print count-only, but you cannot "get" it. And when you print count-only you cannot use "as-value".
Case where I encountered that: attempt to work around the "BGP received prefix count value always 0" bug in v7. See viewtopic.php?t=193118

Fair enough, but [:len [find]] kinda does that for you. (And fixing the performance of the [find] in the first place ;) )

Do you really think that when I want to know the number of routes for a certain "where" query, I need to fetch them all into an array and count the number of elements?
That is ridiculous, isn't it?

I believe you, but more odd that count-only be quicker, it has to do some enumeration. Anyway, certainly not arguing against some "print count-only as-value" – as that doesn't break anything in scripting

CCR2004-16G-2S+ running good so far. Noticing the 7.8 betas are handling my 2gig internet much better. 7.7 I was getting tons of RX drops and the 7.8 betas have made a huge difference on this.

Hun, i think i'm affected by this (on CRS317 running V6.49)

Could you ellaborate more on the "not recommended for CRS3xx" flag?

I was actually planning to upgrade to v7.7 due to the MSTP fixes.

The breaking changes to DNS on Router OS 7.7 are slightly better but still not fixed on 7.8b3. The issues is that there is no way to make the Router the authoritative DNS server for a domain.. (which is fine) It ends up hanging in some cases (from servers) or just returning NXDOMAIN for AAAA records and the host will never try to do an A lookup for a domain that lives in the router because it thinks the domain doesn’t exist.

There is potentially an easy fix for this that hopefully would not require a huge overhaul...

Allow the user to enter an A or AAAA static entry but have no address or point to an empty address list. If it hit this static rule, it would return a valid response with no entries. (this is NOERROR which is what router OS 7.6 used to return instead of NXDOMAIN in 7.7)

This would allow the router to mimic being an authoritative DNS server for a domain and would fix many networking issues.

The reason this is an issue is because a lot of machines will first query for an AAAA record, if it gets an NXDOMAIN it gives up and never tries for an A record. If we can create a static entry for an AAAA record with no address a returns valid request for a domain but no answers (NOERROR), it will then correctly query for an A record.

If I had to guess it's the L3 offloading. I remember a similar warning being given previously. It's probably not stable on the CRS3xx or something like that right now.

I have flapping ports also, but not POE related. I use 7.8beta3 on my Rb450G4 and ax3 connected to it (also cap ac). ax3 reboots whit kernel failure quite often.

Dear MT, whats happening?!
For last 6 mount i have closed 5 bugs in tracker for PKI in 7.7. Thank you for that.
But now you just ignore without ANY feedback my new tickets SUP-106766 and SUP-105306.
What it is? Cancelling me or what?
PKI is critical system and now i willing to bet what this bugs will go in stable 7.8.

Just had a quick review on AC2 and RB4011 with 7.8b3, and I found a new issue of logging.
Log files would not completely show up all messages such as red warning and blue error sometimes.
BTW, DNS cache problem that cache couldn't be flushed has been fixed since 7.8b3.

Hi!
How far is wifiwave2 caps-man in 7.8beta3? Looks like datapath.local-forwarding is set YES, or rather this paramater do not exist and caps-man forwarding do not exist. Would be nice to have it soon back, manage diferent sumbnets in CAP netwokr is a hassele.
