Severity: 4-Minor


The HTTP_PSM profile overrides the HTTP profile's limits for http headers. However, when the limit is exceeded, the HTTP profile name is used, rather than the HTTP_PSM profile name.


The log message generated when the header count is exceeded will be misleading.


HTTP_PSM is used, together with differing limits between HTTP and HTTP_PSM on the maximum number of headers allowed.



Fix Information

The HTTP header count limit now describes the correct profile that that limit came from.
