Aborted connections with suspended DNS iRule may leak memory. libldns memory tag in umem grows indefinitely eventually leading to failover.
Memory leak (libldns variable in tmm memory_usage_stat)
DNS_RESPONSE/DNS_REQUEST with iRule command which suspends and gets the connection aborted (e.g. RESOLV::lookup) because it exceeded the expire timeout for an iRule.
Avoid iRule command(s) which suspend in a DNS_REQUEST or DNS_RESPONSE iRule event.
Prevent memory leak when iRule suspends or aborts an DNS command.
