Fixed In:

Opened: Jun 23, 2015
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The cause of the crash is due to multiple session ha state changes in session_ha_peer_status in a very short period of time. On the active unit when the peer comes back up the session ha state changes to SESSION_HA_RESEND_NEEDED. This state change requires a call to session_ha_marker_reset to prevent the session sweeper from queueing the session ha marker when it is already in the session ha marker queue. Queueing the marker when it's already queued results in corruption of the queue which is caught by the QUEUEDEBUG_TAILQ_INSERT_TAIL macro.

Impact

Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Conditions
