Symptoms

In very rare instances during shutdown of BIG-IP systems, the HSB device rings time out.

Impact

Warning and critical messages are logged to var/log/ltm: -- warning tmm1[12222]: 01230002:4: Interface 0.2: link is down -- warning tmm1[12222]: 01230002:4: Interface 0.39: link is down ... -- warning tmm1[12222]: 01230002:4: Per-invocation log rate exceeded; throttling. -- notice tmm[12222]: 01010019:5: Caught signal 15, exiting -- info tmm[12222]: 0114002c:6: HA compression_failsafe_t tmm disabled. -- crit tmm[12222]: 01010025:2: Device error: hsb interface 0 disable rx ring 0 timed out -- crit tmm[12222]: 01010025:2: Device error: hsb interface 0 disable rx ring 1 timed out ...

Since the HSB device is re-initialized upon startup of the BIG-IP system, this does not present any negative impact beyond the log messages reported.
