TMM cores with the log message 'panic: Invalid Tcl recursion' and a stack trace.
When LB::prime command executes, the queued messages are processed, resulting in a core as these messages are not using the correct Tcl context. Rarely, a crash causes the pool members go down.
This crash rarely occurs when the following conditions are met. 1. SIP on TCP profile. 2. Triggering LB::Prime irule every few seconds on CLIENT_ACCEPTED event. 3. Server-side congestion due to a large amount of traffic. 4. Large queues of undelivered proxied messages.
When you use the LB::prime pool command, the system now flushes the queue, so server-side congestion no longer prevents the messages from being processed.
