Opened: Mar 23, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

A high number of 'No flow found for ACK' TCP resets will be seen in the reset-cause statistics.

Impact

A high number of TCP RSTs will be seen in the stats. These resets will not be sent out on the wire.

Conditions

This can occur when passive SPAN mode is enabled and a virtual server is configured with fastL4 and one or more additional profiles (e.g., fastL4 and HTTP).

Workaround

This issue exists only when configuring a virtual server with type set to 'Performance (Layer 4)' and adding additional profiles. You can workaround this issue by removing those additional profiles or changing the virtual server type field to 'Standard'.

Fix Information

None
