RB850Gx2 less ram than in spec?

Wed Sep 28, 2022 1:42 pm

Hello,

I have bought a second hand RB850Gx2 to play with and have as a backup device. One thing I noticed it only shows 352 MiB for total memory versus 512 MB in the spec sheet: https://mikrotik.com/product/RB850Gx2#f ... ifications

I can live with it if this is normal behavior as I will never use this much memory, but I'm worried something is faulty and may cause problems later on.

What other RB850Gx2 owners are seeing?

Thanks,
Adrian

If it's actually showing that much memory (and it's not the amount of free memory), then there is possibly something wrong with it. If it's under warranty I would contact the seller.

I don't know how popular these were. They were discontinued in 2018 I believe.

For ram it should show the correct amount. For disk, It could have been partitioned.

Mine shows 480MiB.

I could have sworn that it was 512MiB when I bought it. But I am not sure now...

It works perfectly fine nonetheless.
