R80.40 T102 flooding log with dst_release messages

I upgraded to R80.40 T102 and now /var/log/messages is flooded with following messages:

Any idea what is causing this ? Firewall seems to work fine so far.

I found sk166363 that kind of explains it but first this was not happening with previous GA take and second messages are logged way to often.

Same problem here after upgrading to Take 102. I've just open a case with TAC and waiting for answer...

Same problem here. Our gateway also stopped forwarding traffic after a while with a stack trace:

Ours is holding up so far and I can't notice any particular problems or issues other than that nagging message which is shortening SSD life on the appliance.

Hi, We found the root cause of the problem. HFs are on the way to fix the problem. There is a sk published related to this problem.

sk173327 - "dst_release: dst:ffff88052d4c68c0 refcnt:-480" messages in dmesg

Will this be included in the next "stable" and fully QAed Jumbo release?

 

b.t.w the SK is not visible.

Currently sk is meant for internal people. It will be published after internal evaluation.

Yes, it will be part of future 'stable QAed Jumbo Release'.

@rdevarak Thanx for the update. Certainly nice to know you found where problem is. I would appreciate if you provide a little bit of tech detail if you have the time. 

Temp fix to reduce logging of these messages (once every 2 mins):

# echo 120 > /proc/sys/net/core/message_cost

@rdevarak : I see multiple new bugs resolved in T114 regardings new weird /var/log/messages entries from kernel. Then you talked about sk173327 (currently internal) and that you found the root cause.

We have multiple entries of this kind since upgrading to T102:

Is this also a known issue and related to the same root cause?

Or is this a second topic we need to address seperately?

It is a known issue and not related to this issue.  It has been addressed independent of this current issue.

Thank you for the quick response. Last question: Is it cosmetical only or should we worry (and rollback until fix is available)?

It is a functional issue and looks like it has been resolved in R80.40 JHF T114.

You can either get a private fix from TAC, or wait for the next JHF to be released.

Hi,

We experience very big issue on our network, (high latency and packet lost). After a call with the support, It seems that the issue was linked to this message. the support provide me with a special fixe that solve the issue and make disappear the message. 

Regards,

Fayçal

Are you using SSL Inspection/Proxy and is TE or TEX activated or is Anti-Virus deep scan enabled in your setup?
