Severity: 3-Major


If an outstanding flow with periodic insertion pem_action is very long, it prevents new flow matching the same rule from adding inert content pem_action even for a new periodic interval


No content insertion during the time the long flow is outstanding for new flows matching the same rule as the long flow.


If the outstanding flow with insert content pem_action spans multiple periodic interval.


Long flows and short flows need to have separate rule configured

Fix Information

New flows will add content insertion, if the new flow request falls in the new periodic interval.
