Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 11, 2019
Severity: 3-Major


Logs/Tmctl shows packet dropped whereas AVR shows Action as 'Allowed' and not 'Dropped'.


The operation does not update the drop flag. It appears from AVR Reporting that packets are allowed, but actually they are dropped


-- AFM configured. -- AFM passes the message to AVR for reporting.


There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

AVR Reporting now shows proper value.
