MikroTik – Backing Up Your MikroTik & Routerboard Config

Another great script that will email you a copy of your MikroTik/Routerboard device config. You can find the source on the MikroTik Wiki below.


Some notes about the script on the MikroTik wiki and below.

  • I had to modify the script on the MikroTik website, it had used /tool e-mail set address instead of /tool e-mail set server.
  • Ensure that you specify an IP Address for sending an email, a host name will fail.

I’ve moved the code to GitHub just because its awesome and it will track changes! The latest code is available at https://github.com/jordantrizz/mikrotik-scripts/blob/master/backup

/export file=([/system identity get name] . "-" . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6]); \
/tool e-mail send to="[email protected]" subject=([/system identity get name] . " Backup " . \
[/system clock get date]) file=([/system identity get name] . "-" . [:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6] . ".rsc"); :delay 10; \
/file rem [/file find name=([/system identity get name] . "-" . [:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6] . ".rsc")]; \
:log info ("System Backup emailed at " . [/sys cl get time] . " " . [/sys cl get date])

Please note: The code above was incorrectly formatted and may have had some characters changed or stripped when it was first posted. I have since updated the above code and it should be correct, if you have any issues then post a comment. -Jordan @ 09/12/12

Western Digital developing 20,000RPM drives

That's right, this isn't a joke.
The new drive will be very similar to the recently-released VelociRaptor, in that it’ll be a 2.5in drive with a custom 3.5in housing built around it. Details are incredibly light at this stage, given that the product is still in development, and we don’t even have a release timeframe at the moment. However, our sources said that the drive will be ‘silent’ – that’s the last thing I would have expected from a drive with platters spinning at 20,000 RPM. Western Digital is apparently working on silencing the beast by improving the housing technology, which will now not just act as a heatsink, but also as a noise cancelling device. We’d also hope that the drive enclosure has some vibration dampening technology as well, because that’s also likely to be a problem given the high spindle speeds.
