Severity: 3-Major


cmd_sod does not retry sending command messages over UDP. this could lead to SOD failing receiving commands when busy.


some of the commands may fail to reach SOD daemon.


it is easier to reproduce this when many traffic groups are selected and cmd_sod is used to send commands to SOD concurrently for each traffic group.



Fix Information

cmd_sod will now retry sending command messages up to 3 times if failing to reach SOD, increasing the reliability of the failover process.
