Severity: 3-Major


The GenericMEssage filter does not have a configurable limit to the number of messages that can be received.


If too many messages are queued, the system may exceed an internal count which could lead to a core.


If a message is waiting for an asynchronous iRule operation during GIENERICMESSAGE_INGRESS or GENERICMESSAGE_EGRESS iRule event, new messages will be placed in wither the ingress or egress queue. As the number of messages increase, more memory is required.
