Opened: Jan 25, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

tmm will restart when using 'ACCESS::perflow get' if the per-request policy has not been started yet.

Impact

Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Conditions

Use 'ACCESS::perflow get' iRule in an event that runs before the per-request policy (e.g., CLIENT_ACCEPTED).

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Initialization of certain variables was reworked so that the iRule command will not cause a core anymore if the per-flow value is unavailable due to the per-request policy not having been started yet.
