Symptoms

If the BIG-IP system fails to connect to the IP reputation database server (either using a proxy or not), it causes a memory leak in one of the internal daemons (iprepd and/or merged).

Impact

This issue causes a slow memory leak in the iprepd or merged daemon.

Conditions

IP-reputation is enabled and it fails to connect to the database server (usually to the proxy of the database server or there is a bad/non-existent connection outside).

Workaround

Fix the proxy to the ipreputation or the connection to the IP reputation or turn off IP reputation.

Fix Information

Even if the BIG-IP system fails to connect to the IP reputation database server (either using a proxy or not), it no longer causes a memory leak in one of the internal daemons.
