We are putting a private PTP metro ethernet (fiber based) link between the

I am reading that Mikrotik has a memory leak in its BGP implementation. Any
more info about this?

That depends on the netwoek in between this two locations.
There could be a lot of good reasons why this is no good idea; please
bring some light into this.
