Severity: 3-Major


During startup of the bcm56xxd daemon, the LTM log shows BCM SDK errors containing the string 'SDK error Invalid parameter'. IP fragments fail to be reassembled. The reassembly time out triggers and the flow is killed.


TCP connections and UDP datagrams which have fragmented packets are killed or dropped.


-- After startup as long as the SDK errors occur. -- Running on VIPRION B4200 blades.


There is no workaround that will process fragments correctly.
