What is simple queue in MikroTik?

Summary. Queues are used to limit and prioritize traffic: limit data rate for certain IP addresses, subnets, protocols, ports, and other parameters. limit peer-to-peer traffic. prioritize some packet flows over others.

What is queue size in MikroTik?

The whole SFQ queue can contain 128 packets and there are 1024 sub-streams available.

How do I set bandwidth limit in MikroTik?

Limiting Bandwidth (New to Mikrotik)

  1. Queues > simple queues > add.
  2. Name the queue.
  3. Set target as device’s (in this case my PC) IP address.
  4. Set max limit on both target upload and target download to 256k.
  5. Hit apply and/or okay.

What is Sfq MikroTik?

SFQ – Stochastic Fairness Queuing. PCQ – Per Connection Queuing (MikroTik Proprietary) Firewall Mangle and Address-lists. Queue Tree.

What is PCQ in MikroTik?

From MikroTik Wiki. Per Connection Queue (PCQ) is a queuing discipline that can be used to dynamically equalize or shape traffic for multiple users, using little administration.

How is bandwidth managed?

Bandwidth management is the process of measuring and controlling the communications (traffic, packets) on a network link, to avoid filling the link to capacity or overfilling the link, which would result in network congestion and poor performance of the network.

What are simple queues?

Simple Queue A simple queue is the most basic queue. In this queue, the enqueue operation takes place at the rear, while the dequeue operation takes place at the front: Its applications are process scheduling, disk scheduling, memory management, IO buffer, pipes, call center phone systems, and interrupt handling.

What is mangle in MikroTik?

Mangle is a kind of ‘marker’ that marks packets for future processing with special marks. Many other facilities in RouterOS make use of these marks, e.g. queue trees, NAT, routing. They identify a packet based on its mark and process it accordingly.

Which IP is using more bandwidth Mikrotik?

You can use the torch function on Mikrotik routers to identify what local device is using bandwidth, and make a reasonable guess as to what external service its using. And from there, use local tools to further identify exactly what program is responsible.

What is burst threshold in Mikrotik?

Burst-threshold is the value that determines when burst can be executed and when burst should be stopped. The burst-threshold value is generally ¾ of the max-limit value. If the average data-rate value is lower than the burst-threshold, then the burst will run.

Why is PCQ important?

Per connection queue (PCQ) function is one of function that uses for bandwidth management for increasing a performance of the system [3-7]. It divides bandwidth from ISP or related rules from setting menu that divides equally as a user who uses a network at the time.

What is possible with Netinstall?

Netinstall is a tool designed for Windows operating systems to reinstall MikroTik devices running RouterOS (except for non-MikroTik x86 devices). Netinstall re-formats the device’s disk and copies over fresh files on to the system’s disk, this can solve multiple issues when your device is not working properly.

How to add all IPS in MikroTik simple queue?

Here is the simple command to add all IP in MikroTik simple queue. In the MikroTik terminal, just run the following code. But before copy and paste the code, first copy the code in a notepad and change the IP address range and bandwidth values as you want based on your policy. Then run that command inside MikroTik terminal.

What is the MikroTik queue tree?

If you are a network administrator/engineer, then the Mikrotik Queue Tree has got to be your coolest way of sharing your limited bandwidth among your users in such a way that the bandwidth allocated to a group or a user, becomes available for others if the user to whom the bandwidth was allocated is not available at that time.

How to limit bandwidth limit in MikroTik?

For example, if you want to limit bandwidth in MikroTik for your user only for specific IP address you can do that so. But remember each queue rule require you to create a separate queue. You can implement all queue for a single IP address in a single queue. I will explain later how to add bulk IP address in your MikroTik queue.

How to configure queue in RouterOS?

There are two different ways how to configure queues in RouterOS: /queue simple menu – designed to ease configuration of simple, everyday queuing tasks (such as single client upload/download limitation, p2p traffic limitation, etc.).
