Symptoms

Following a connection close, the system continues sending Device Watchdog Request (DWR) messages to the pool member instead of sending a Disconnect Peer Request (DPR) event when a pool member is disabled/forced offline.

Impact

The BIG-IP system does not comply with the RFC for the event of connection close.

Conditions

-- MRF Diameter is configured. -- Connection close occurs.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The BIG-IP system now sends DPR instead of DWR in the event a pool member is force-offline.
