BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2, 12.1.3, 12.1.3.1, 13.0.0, 13.0.0 HF1, 13.0.0 HF2, 13.0.0 HF3, 13.0.1

Fixed In:
13.1.0, 12.1.3.2

Opened: Feb 15, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When mcpd debug logging is enabled, mcp messages sent to or received from the bigd daemon are logged with a username of "(user %-P)" or "(user %-S)" instead of "(user %bigd.#)" [where # is the bigd process index] or "(user %bigd)".

Impact

Confusion about which daemon is referenced in mcpd debug logs with username "(user %-S)" or "(user %-P)".

Conditions

mcpd debug messages with the "(user %-P)" identifier are logged on affected BIG-IP versions when mcpd debug logging is enabled and multiple instances of bigd are running. mcpd debug messages with the "(user %-S)" identifier are logged on affected BIG-IP versions when mcpd debug logging is enabled and a single instance of bigd is running.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

mcpd debug messages sent to or received from the bigd daemon are correctly logged with a username of "(user %bigd.#)" [where # is the bigd process index] or "(user %bigd)".
