Simple queues and core router

Fri Dec 24, 2010 10:05 am

Hello ! I have Intel® Core™ i7-870 Processor (8M Cache, 2.93 GHz) and Intel dual port server network adapter (82576 chipset) on Intel motherboard with Mikrotik 5.0rc5 installed.RPS is turned ON and network adapter use all cores for own queues. There are 4000 simple queues, traffic ~400mbit, NAT for 3500 users, BGP (default route from two uplink and~3500 routes without full view). The problem is that simple queues load the router very high. Go to the PCQ is unrealistic (even with using mask), since the ~1000 users have several IP Address (such as and What can I do? May be using two XEON X-core processor solve the problem (I don't know how well mikrotik balancing simple queues on different cores) ?

Redesign your network so you can use PCQ.

Scaling to 4,000 simple queues is ridiculous. Feasible, maybe, but the administrative overhead is no worse than a network redesign and doing things right in the first place .
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

only PCQ will help you, and use different router for NAT and BGP with routing
