Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IQ Device User Interface(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
5.4.0, 5.4.0 HF1, 5.4.0 HF2, 6.0.0, 6.0.1, 6.1.0

Opened: Apr 04, 2019
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

The BIG-IP Devices page might fail to display data under certain circumstances, such as when you use the dropdown menu at the left corner of the page to select a Device Group.

Impact

The BIG-IP Devices page may not show the list of BIG-IP devices.

Conditions

When a large number of BIG-IP devices are discovered, or you have a lot of custom Device Groups. Note: There is no way to predict exact numbers because it can vary by environment. One BIG-IQ with 100 devices configured in 10 or more device groups might show no impact if there is no traffic. If fewer devices are discovered and each device has a lot of activity, the load on the BIG-IQ might lead to latency.

Workaround

To view grouped devices: 1. Navigate to the Device Groups page. 2. Click the link for the Device Group. The page for that Device Group lists all of the BIG-IP Devices it contains.

Fix Information

None
