Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.2, 12.1.3, 12.1.3.1, 12.1.3.2, 12.1.3.3, 12.1.3.4, 12.1.3.5, 12.1.3.6, 12.1.3.7, 12.1.4, 12.1.4.1, 12.1.5, 12.1.5.1, 12.1.5.2, 12.1.5.3, 12.1.6, 13.0.0, 13.0.0 HF1, 13.0.0 HF2, 13.0.0 HF3, 13.0.1, 13.1.0, 13.1.0.1, 13.1.0.2, 13.1.0.3, 13.1.0.4, 13.1.0.5, 13.1.0.6, 13.1.0.7, 13.1.0.8, 13.1.1, 13.1.1.2, 13.1.1.3, 13.1.1.4, 13.1.1.5, 13.1.3, 13.1.3.1, 13.1.3.2, 13.1.3.3, 13.1.3.4, 13.1.3.5, 13.1.3.6, 13.1.4, 13.1.4.1, 13.1.5, 13.1.5.1, 14.0.0, 14.0.0.1, 14.0.0.2, 14.0.0.3, 14.0.0.4, 14.0.0.5, 14.0.1, 14.0.1.1

Fixed In:
14.1.0

Opened: Feb 15, 2018

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

On i2000, i4000 i86 series platforms the flow control field for an interface incorrectly displays the requested flow control, not what is actually programmed in the hardware. Hardware flow control support on these platforms was missing in BIG-IP. Bug 709869 tracks the problem that transmit flow-control on 1G interfaces was not implemented.

Impact

Flow control was not enabled on interfaces where it was requested.

Conditions

i2000, i4000 i86 series platforms Flow control on interfaces was set to something other than none.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

On On i2000, i4000 i86 series platforms interface flow control is implemented to the extent the hardware supports it, and the tmsh show net interface all-properties will display the flow control that is programmed into the hardware. Bug 709869 tracks the hardware support for 1G transmit flow-control that was missing.
