Over time, memory is allocated by the TMM processes for use as 'xdata' buffers, yet this memory is never de-allocated; it is leaked and becomes unusable. Eventually a disruption of service occurs.
Traffic disrupted while tmm restarts.
-- The BIG-IP system has been running for 8 weeks or longer without a system restart. -- The BIG-IP system's internal risk-policy subsystem (used by the security feature modules) has not been configured to communicate with an external risk-policy server. -- In a vCMP configuration, the BIG-IP 'host' instance is always susceptible, since no security features can be configured in its context.
Default configuration of security mechanism no longer causes memory leak in TMM.
