Known Affected Versions:
1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3, 1.1.4, 1.2.0, 1.2.1, 1.2.2

Fixed In:

Opened: Jul 15, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A 'show interfaces' command or the corresponding RESTCONF API request that includes 'show interfaces interface state counters' or 'show interfaces interface ethernet state counters' might take a long time to execute.

Impact

The webUI screen refresh is slow (2 to 8 seconds per missing blade), or the CLI 'show' command takes a long time to return.

Conditions

When a blade was present in the chassis partition, but is either physically removed or powered off, but the slot is not removed from the partition configuration. When running 'show interfaces interface state counters' command for an aggregate (trunk), a delay will also be observed.

Workaround

Use the system controller webUI or CLI to remove the non-existent blade from the chassis partition.

Fix Information

Fixed an issue causing the "show interfaces" command to be slow when a blade is removed.
