Symptoms

When the system loads a configuration, SSL immediately reads any associated keys, certificates, and CRLs. This can take long enough that the watchdog timer fires causing TMM to restart.

Impact

TMM restarts.

Conditions

Many SSL profiles are in use.

Workaround

Use fewer SSL profiles.

Fix Information

Keys, certificates, and CRLs used by SSL are loaded on first use instead of when configured, which mitigates potential timeouts caused by SSL reading the associated keys, certificates, and CRLs for many SSL profiles.
