Bug ID 813609: Multpile process consumer more memory with multiple components provisioned and causing RAM usage grow during traffic testing.

Last Modified: Oct 05, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP APM, SWG(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
15.0.0, 15.0.1,,,,, 15.1.0,,,,,, 15.1.1, 15.1.2,, 15.1.3,, 15.1.4,, 15.1.5,, 15.1.6,, 15.1.7, 15.1.8,,, 15.1.9,, 15.1.10,, 16.0.0,, 16.0.1,,

Opened: Aug 08, 2019

Severity: 2-Critical


Different process (in this case avrd) on the BIG-IP system are killed due to OOM when most of components are provisioned and traffic testing encompasses more than 100 users. This occurs because the amount of memory is not sufficient for the provisioning of APM plus SWG, which requires 16 GB alone.


Excessive memory consumption reduces available RAM for other system daemons.


-- Many virtual servers configured. -- Large number of client end users sending a lage amount of traffic. -- Less than 16 GB, which is not sufficient with many modules provisioned.
