Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

tmrouted may restart after it being manually restarted with debug level equal or higher than 2.

Impact

tmrouted may restart additional times which can add delay to getting back to service after manually restarting tmrouted. Any restart of tmrouted already causes loss of dynamic routing sessions.

Conditions

tmrouted is manually restarted with debug level equal or higher than 2. Multi route-domain setup with independent routing processes enabled on several route-domains.

Workaround

Do not use equal or higher than 2 debug level for tmrouted. This should be carried out only under recommendation from F5 Support.

Fix Information

tmrouted no longer crashes when being restarted in debug mode
