Profiler


RouterOS includes a tool to show CPU usage that is similar to CPU information displayed by Window’s Task Manager. The processes can be viewed here, but they have to stopped under their normal settings. For example, if I saw that the firewall was consuming most of my CPU, I would have to go to the firewall to turn that process off, it can not be done through this tool. Older versions only display the average values for all cores, but the newer RouterOS versions allow you see the break down of utilization on specific cores as well; just select the CPU drop down. MikroTik calls each categories a classifier. A list of current classifiers can be seen below.

Classifiers

Profiler classifies processes into several classifiers. Most of them are self explanatory and does not require detailed a explanation.
