During initialization, if there are many SSL keys in use, the watchdog timer can fire causing TMM to crash.


Service interruption


There are many SSL keys in use (for example, when a very large number of profiles are attached to a virtual server), and the BIG-IP system is sufficiently loaded.


Use fewer SSL keys.

Fix Information

SSL keys are now loaded on first use, rather then during initialization which should mitigate this issue.
