Last Modified: Jul 12, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 30, 2016

Severity: 3-Major


Files in /config/filestore/.snapshots_d may be kept longer than expected. This error message may be generated by mcpd later on: 01071350:3: subscriber(%icr_eventd): Snapshot for req_id(12345) getting removed due to timeout.


A slight amount of additional disk space may be used. The error message may be ignored; it does not indicate a harmful state. Traffic is not at risk of being dropped.


These will be generated on any creation of file objects, such as iFile objects, SSL keys, or certificates.


A timer will automatically clean up these files after one hour. Alternately, run 'bigstart restart icr_eventd'.
