Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Web pages are not rendered properly; HTTP responses are truncated when traversing the BIG-IP system.

Impact

HTTP responses are truncated when passing through the BIG-IP system.

Conditions

-- Virtual server with an HTTP profile -- HTTP server generates a compressed response -- BIG-IP system determines that it must decompress the payload, e.g., a rewrite profile attached to the virtual server

Workaround

One of the following: -- Add an HTTP Compression profile to the virtual server, and ensure that 'Keep Accept-Encoding' is not selected. -- Use an iRule to remove the Accept-Encoding header from requests, e.g.: ltm rule workaround { when HTTP_REQUEST { HTTP::header remove Accept-Encoding } }

Fix Information

None
