And if we talk about performance, there is another change that we must mention. Remember how you sometimes needed 10 – 15 minutes for the print command to handle your largest routing tables? Well, in v7 we managed to optimize this process. Seconds, not minutes. That’s right. 10 seconds and you’re good to go.
We, MikroTik, have added global routing IDs. When you are running a set of routing protocols in one instance, they will have the same routing ID. Previously, you had to change it separately for OSPF and BGP. But not anymore! Now the ID is located in one place and can be easily modified.
