Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2, 12.1.2 HF1, 12.1.2 HF2, 12.1.3,,,,,,,, 12.1.4,, 12.1.5,,,, 12.1.6

Opened: Apr 24, 2019
Severity: 3-Major


The MIB variable sysInterfaceMediaActiveSpeed is reported correctly on the BIG-IP hardware systems. However, on BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) configurations, the values are incorrectly reported. It may be reported as a 10 or as a 0 (zero), both of which are incorrect.


This may be confusing when looking at the sysInterface information with SNMP.


Querying the F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysInterfaceMediaActiveSpeed variable on a VE-based BIG-IP running 12.x, or earlier, software.
