Symptoms

-- TMM memory utilization baseline is slowly increasing. -- The 'allocated' column of the 'tcl' row in the memory_usage_stat tmctl table is high and is close to the 'max_allocated' value.

Impact

Degraded performance, and eventual out-of-memory condition that may trigger a TMM crash. Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Conditions

-- The header-insert option in a custom HTTP profile is configured. -- The profile is attached to a virtual server.

Workaround

Instead of the profile header-insert, use HTTP::header iRule commands.

Fix Information

The header-insert option can now be configured in HTTP profiles without causing a TMM memory leak.
