An sFlow error may occur during config sync or load of a BIG-IP device.


Config sync or load operation might fail. This occurs rarely. When this occurs, the system posts a message similar to the following: 'Can't save/checkpoint DB object, class:sflow_http_virtual_data_source status:13'


Exact conditions are unknown and difficult to reproduce, but some possible conditions include config sync or load operations following delete/create of a virtual server or profiles (either directly or by deleting/creating an iApp), sync following failover,


Force the mcpd process to reload the BIG-IP configuration. For more information, see K13030, Forcing the mcpd process to reload the BIG-IP configuration, available here: Link: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13030.

Fix Information

The ConfigSync operation completes successfully, and the sFlow error no longer occurs.
