Opened: Apr 23, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When using the categorization engine (urldb), memory may increase when real-time update databases are downloaded (once every ten minutes, as available).

Impact

Memory increases, and if there is not enough room on the BIG-IP system, urldb can core.

Conditions

-- SWG provisioned. -- Using urldb. -- Real-time database updates occurring.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The system no longer preloads the database into memory, so memory no longer grows past what is expected.
