Opened: Nov 02, 2017
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Whenever an iCall script or CLI script saves the configuration, the scriptd process on the device leaks memory.

Impact

Repeated invocation might cause the system to run out of memory eventually, causing tmm to restart and disrupting traffic.

Conditions

Use of iCall or CLI scripts to save the configuration.

Workaround

There is no workaround other than not saving the configuration from iCall or CLI scripts.

Fix Information

scriptd process on the device no longer leaks memory when iCall and CLI scripts are used to save the configuration.
