The flow may continue to persist even if the gate status is disabled which means the traffic flow shall be dropped.


The customer may observe that flows are not dropped even though the gate status is disabled (given that classification is disabled at the same time).


This issue occurs when the gate status is disabled, and classification is disabled.


The work around is to make sure the classification is not disabled.

Fix Information

The issue has been fixed that the traffic flow will be dropped even if both gate status and classification is disabled. The action to drop was not applied as it is a delayed action. Adjusted the flag to apply the action.
