Bug ID 749912: [BIG-IQ Integration] Deadlock occurs when adding multiple hostnames with transparent enforcement

Last Modified: Nov 07, 2022

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP ASM, BIG-IQ(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:

Fixed In:

Opened: Nov 15, 2018

Severity: 4-Minor


Transparent enforcement by hostname has been moved from the Host Name configuration to the Microservice configuration. REST API Clients that use the backwards-compatible, old endpoint, and send multiple requests in parallel may encounter a deadlock when configuring this element.


Configuration calls fail due to internal DB deadlocks


1) REST API Clients configure policy enforcement transparency by hostname. 2) They use the backwards-compatible, old endpoint to do so. 3) Multiple requests are sent in parallel. Note: This is the case for BIG-IQ managing the BIG-IP system and configuring multiple domain names.


Retry the API calls (or BIG-IQ deployment)

Fix Information

Deadlocks during configuration calls are retried automatically and do not interrupt deployments.
