Mikrotik is a decent product and I'm always amazed at their
features set, but...
Using the UI to configuring the switch will punt too much traffic
toward the CPU. However, it is possible to configure the switch fabric
with the cli and attain the desired results.
It does not compare to a JNP QFX5100 or a Extreme Network x650,
