Symptoms

MCP crashes while performing a chunked query (such as 'tmsh show sys connection) that returns a large result if a connection to a TMM is severed (due to a zero-window timeout).

Impact

Failover (in a device cluster) or temporary outage (in a standalone system). A core file is generated that has a stack trace that includes a message similar to the following: error reading variable: Cannot access memory at address 0x1.

Conditions

CPU is highly loaded.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Ensured that MCP no longer crashes when performing a large chunked query and a connection to a TMM is severed.
