A core may occur with message routing framework (MRF) virtuals or transport-config connections if trying to use certain iRule commands during CLIENT_CLOSED event.


Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.


Use of an iRule command that gets or sets state in a MRF protocol filter or MR proxy during CLIENT_CLOSED iRule event may core. This is because CLIENT_CLOSED event is raised after all state has been freed for the current connection.


Do not use iRule command to get or set state during CLIENT_CLOSED iRule event.
