Opened: Oct 01, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When packets are being CMP forwarded for the host (e.g., related connection), the LRO flag is not being restored. As a result, these packets do not go through TSO which results in PMTU response and the connection hangs.

Impact

The connection hangs.

Conditions

This issue is particular to CMP forwarded host connections which are going over the TMM interface due to explicit LRO and large MTU.

Workaround

There is no workaround.

Fix Information

None
