PR Number Synopsis Description

Service index leak might be seen after subscribers logout in CoS subscriber scenario

On MX platform with CoS subscribers configured, if the traffic-control-profiles or schedulers is configured under dynamic-profiles, device might run out of service index after subscribers logout.


The bbe-smgd might crash if subscribers are trying to login/logout and a config commit activity happens at the same time

In Next Generation Subscriber Management (Tomcat) scenario, the bbe-smgd process might crash if a config commit activity happens when subscribers are trying to login/logout. The issue will lead to a crash/core dump by the bbe-smgd daemon, but the daemon will restart and recover state. There will be no traffic impact for existing flows, but for new flows/logins/logouts, a momentary disruption might be seen while the bbe-smgd daemon restarts.
