CCR2116 vs CCR2216 performance difference

Mon Jun 20, 2022 1:54 pm

According to the "25 simple queue" and "25 ip filter rule" test results on mikrotik.com, the CCR2216-1G-12XS-2XQ is slower than the CCR2116-12G-4S+, even though they have the same CPU (16-core AL73400 @2.0GHz) and amount of RAM (16GB).

Are the test results bogus or is the CCR2116 effectively faster than the CCR2216?

If you consider how the tests are performed then it should hopefully make sense. You can reference the RBM11G and RBM33G also as they are the same processor but with a different port count.

@jspool, the port difference does not explain why the CCR2216 gets 1.6Gbps w/ 25 ip filter rules at 64 bytes while the CCR2116 gets 2.1Gbps for the same test.

numbers are anything without context

maybe some sort of optimization needed between ccr2216 and switch-asic, is a very fresh product and the differences are not to much significant

but i think there is no indication of any situation to worry about

i think in processing intensive tasks like simple queuing we can expect similar performance between 2116 and 2216

in fact i think that buying a 2216 to do simple queues is a big and costly mistake, 2116 will be a wiser choice this numbers are there to give some orientation but need to be fully context aware

2216 has been designed to be a core/border router running all traffic using L3HW at speeds where 2116 interfaces are not enough

off course you can use the 2116 for that kind of work but with more limitations y less performance

any CPU intensive task will be much cost effective with 2116

i have seen many bad purchases with ccr1072 and that for sure will happen with 2216 because people does not take their time understanding product portfolio and they put in hands of busy sellers which will do their job which is selling, but properly deploy and design a network is something beyond buying boxes

What about 1072 and the new 2116 ?

Is still interesting the 1072 ?
