Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP AVR(all modules)

Fixed In:
15.0.0

Opened: Feb 12, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Fast L4 analytics reports very large integers for goodput.

Impact

Goodput data is unreliable.

Conditions

BIG-IP receives SYNs with attached data.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Data coupled with the SYN breaks the check for a Fast L4 state change. The connection can still function normally, but statistics collection is reliant on the state change to initialize things properly. The system now ensures the correct state under these conditions, so statistics are measured correctly.
