MikroTik RouterOS version 6.33.5

MikroTik released a new version of it’s RouterOS at the end of 2015. In this release, we got some great updates! Some highlights include being able to see partial ARP entries and netwatch is now much more precise with ping time outs. In inbox, we are also going to get per-interface counters for fast-path. This feature alone will help in seeing how fast path is working and diagnosing issues with it if they arise.

Here’s a complete list of what’s new in RouterOS v6.33.5:
