Publius: I thought fastpath doesn't work with pppoe and/or NAT?

No to pppoe but yes to NAT laughing

The whole idea is to speed up NAT transactions, see

Mikrotik are quoting up to 900Mbps NAT on an RB2011 WAN port.

See for supported interface type and conditions. Note ChangeLog for 6.30rc19 has additional new features now.

MadEngineer: Well, that worked :)  too bad I didn't run a test prior to the update but my 951-2n (as supplied from a MTCNA class) hits 10% CPU during a download @ 27.5Mbps

I picked a popular torrent from a random site and again, 5-10% usage for up to 3MB/s for 270 connections

Good news :-)

What about the same test with the Fastrack turned off ? It would be good to see what actual difference it makes on your connection :-)
No change to the speed of course but CPU usage jumps up 10% when the feature is disabled.
