Opened: Nov 20, 2019
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

TMM crash with 'server drained' panic string.

Impact

TMM crash, failover, brief traffic outage. Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.

Conditions

-- Server-side flow is detached while the proxy is still buffering data for the pool member and the client continues to send data. -- The detach may be triggered by the LB::detach iRule commands or internally.

Workaround

-- In cases in which the detach is triggered internally, there is no workaround. -- In cases in which the detach is triggered by LB::Detach, make sure the command is not executed when a request may still be in progress by using it in response events, for example HTTP_RESPONSE, USER_RESPONSE, etc.

Fix Information

None
