Bug ID 811021: The nitrox_diag utility may not include register dump values for crypto accelerators

Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP LTM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
11.6.0, 11.6.1, 11.6.2, 11.6.3,,,,, 11.6.4, 11.6.5,,,

Opened: Jul 30, 2019

Severity: 3-Major


Running the nitrox_diag may not include Nitrox3 register values when gathering device diagnostic information from guest.


Not all available debugging information will be included for diagnosis. This makes investigating hardware-related issues involving Nitrox3 more difficult.


This occurs when the host is running 11.6.x, when the guest is running, and when the guest runs nitrox_diag. Running nitrox_diag on the host still works. Running nitrox_diag in older guests still works.


You can still run nitrox_diag, but it will not include register dumps. In some cases this is okay: the other information gathered by nitrox_diag may be sufficient to resolve issues under investigation.
