Running qkview or the command 'tmsh -q show gtm datacenter detail' does not work correctly for configuration in which an LTM server objects contains virtual servers with dependencies.


The mcpd process consumes all CPU and causes overdog to failover the GTM system.


This occurs as a result of LTM server objects hosting virtual servers configured with a dependency list. For example, having every virtual server dependent on every other virtual server for the virtual server to be up and green (in other words, for VS1 to be up VS2 must be up, and for VS2 to be up VS3 must be up, and so on.
