Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

DNS licensed rate limits might be unintentionally activated.

Impact

DNS licensed rate limits might be unintentionally activated. Rate counters will activate, even though rates are unlimited, which unnecessarily uses CPU cycles. Also, features that indirectly look at rate flags such as hardware DNS, might deactivate improperly even though rates are unlimited.

Conditions

This might occur with a license in which DNS services is unlimited, but BIG-IP DNS (formerly GTM) is limited.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

DNS licensed rate limits are now handled as expected.
