Summary

List of RouterBoards with FastPath support

RouterBoard Interfaces

FastPath Handlers

Currently RouterOS has three fast path handlers

  • ipv4 fast path
  • traffic generator
  • mpls fast path
  • bridge handler
Icon-note.png

Note: Packet will be forwarded in fast path only if source and destination interfaces support fast path. See the list of supported interfaces.



IPv4 handler

IPv4 fast path is automatically used if following conditions are met:

/ip firewall connection tracking set enabled parameter has new auto value Which means that connection tracking is disabled by default until firewall rules are added.


Traffic Generator handler

Traffic Generator fast path is automatically used for interfaces that support this feature.


Bridge handler

Bridge fast path is automatically used if following conditions are met:


Bridge fast path is approximately twice as fast.
