Last Modified: Dec 13, 2023

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

Known Affected Versions:,,, 14.0.1,, 14.1.0,,,,,, 14.1.2,,,,,,,,, 14.1.3,, 14.1.4,,,,,,, 14.1.5,,,,,, 15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,, 15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,, 15.1.5,, 15.1.6,, 15.1.7, 15.1.8,,, 15.1.9,, 15.1.10,,

Opened: Nov 09, 2018

Severity: 3-Major


The system generates and logs the following message continuously, at the rate of 3 times a minute: user=root folder=/ module=(tmos)# status=[Command OK] cmd_data=list cm device recursive:.


All tmsh commands are logged including the command which executed by a internal cron job. So, messages of 'cmd_data=list cm device recursive' are logged in /var/log/audit even the command has not been executed by a user. This is designed behavior.


This occurs in normal operation.
