Apply policy operation hangs. The system logs the following messages in /ts/log/asm_config_server.log: ---------------- F5::SetActive::Impl::send_update_core,,Still waiting for response from bd_agent (XXX seconds) ---------------- Where 'XXX' is ever growing... High CPU usage, by the 'asm_config_server' process, while the apply policy is stuck.


Apply policy operation hangs.


ASM provisioned. Apply policy is executed (manually or automatically, by Policy Builder for an example). bd/bd_agent are restarted (for any reason) during the apply policy operation.


Use one of the following commands: -- bigstart restart asm. -- pkill -f asm_config_server.

Fix Information

Apply policy operation now has a timeout threshold, which prevents the apply policy operation from hanging.
