Severity: 2-Critical


When looking at tmsh show sys memory you will see ssl_compat continue to grow and fails to release memory.


Eventually memory reaper will kick in.


-SSL Forward Proxy In use -SSL Re-negotiations happening


There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

ssl_compat now properly releases connections on re-negotiation.
