Fixed In:
17.1.1

Opened: Jun 21, 2023

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The BCM56xxd process reports erroneous Receive Power value for an interface when Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM) is enabled. The reporting within /var/log/ltm is erroneous by shifting a decimal point and is off by a factor of 10: 2023-06-14T17:10:35.282+00:00 bigip1 err bcm56xxd[11534]: 012c0017:3: DDM interface:2.2 receive power too high warning. Receive power:7.7933 mWatts The "show /net interface-ddm" output for this interface displays a different value: Digital Diagnostic Monitoring Interface:2.2 Laser Transmit and Receive Power Value Receive Power1 0.7904mW -1.02dBm

Impact

Incorrect Receive Power value is recorded in warning logs.

Conditions

DDM is enabled with the "ddm.bcm56xxd.enable" db variable: sys db ddm.bcm56xxd.enable { value "enable" }
