Hmmm I just upgraded everything to 6.15 ☺  Well I guess I start the testing process on 6.17. Although I notice a 6.19 which is targeted at ccr’s

I'm finding RouterOS 6.17 to be using a LOT less memory than 6.15 was for the same config.   (200mb in use rather than 400mb)

I upgraded off 6.15 as I found an annoying bug whereby viewing the routing table in Winbox on mac crashed the winbox client, and locked whatever process on the router Winbox connects to, for 10-15 minutes.  After which time no config changes were written to flash from that point on, and user config reverted to default every 5-10 minutes (yes, leaving the router open to the interwebz, if you didn't have allowed IP's set for all services, UGH), until you forcibly rebooted the router.  After a reboot, it reverted to the last config made before viewing the routing table.  6.17 doesn't seem to have that issue.

Anyone using RoutersOS 6.15 (x64) + BGP who are noticing an increase in memory usage.   Over the last 8 days I have seen memory usage go from 200M to 800M.
