Opened: Aug 24, 2023

Severity: 1-Blocking

Symptoms

ICMP traffic or any other traffic fails to reach the deployed tenant; the dataplane is down. The problem is a race condition between multiple tenants being deployed at the same time. All of these tenants use the same socket to send enable/disable messages. When all of the tenants are deployed at the same time and send their enable/disable messages, it causes a slowdown, which then causes a timeout and failure to attach TMM.

Impact

The deployed tenant fails to receive traffic; dataplane is inoperable.

Conditions

This issue occurs when a tenant is continuously rebooted.

Workaround

Redeploy the tenant by going into ConfD CLI and entering provisioned/deployed commands.

Fix Information

Redeploy the tenant by using ConfD CLI.
