A config load error message occurs in response to the order of the two monitor sections in the bigip.conf file. If the parent custom monitor appears before the child custom monitor, then there is no error. If the order is reversed, the system posts an error message.


On performing a 'tmsh load sys config verify' the system posts an error message similar to the following: 01070740:3: Performance monitor /Common/http-a may not have the manual resume feature. Unexpected Error: Validating configuration process failed.


This occurs when there are at least two monitors, and the child custom monitor appears before the parent monitor.


A possible workaround involves switching the order of the monitors in the config file. This can be accomplished either manually, or by naming things in alphabetical order, such that the parent precedes the child.

Fix Information

The system now handles a configuration in which a child custom monitor precedes the parent,e so that monitor parameters are constructed properly.
