Last Modified: Feb 07, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
16.1.1, 16.1.0,,, 15.1.4,

Fixed In:
17.0.0, 16.1.2, 15.1.5,

Opened: Aug 12, 2021

Severity: 2-Critical


-- Log message written to TMM log file: panic: ../kern/page_alloc.c:736: Assertion "vmem_hashlist_remove not found" failed.


Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.


-- Virtual Server using a traffic-matching-criteria (TMC) with a destination-port-list, with multiple distinct ranges of ports. -- Config changes to virtual server with traffic-matching criteria can cause memory corruption which can lead to delayed TMM crashes.


Do not use Traffic Matching Criteria with destination port lists. TMM restart is required in case the virtual server is modified with traffic-matching-criteria related config.

Fix Information

TMM no longer crashes under these conditions.
