1552603 The BGP session replication might fail to start after the session crashes on the backup Routing Engine.
On certain Junos platforms with Dual-REs (platforms capable of installing Junos packages with name format as "junos*install"), BGP replication may fail to start under GRES/NSR setup after a crash on backup Routing Engine. NSR starts un-replicating the socket since backup Routing Engine is no longer present. Massive unreplicated request leads to memory buffer getting full with multiple BGP sessions (e.g., 20 BGP peers). Hence BGP unreplicated request returned with an error. Besides, the kernel is left with stale data. It does not allow the JSR (Juniper Socket Replication, BGP in this case) when backup RE comes up due to the stale data. BGP-NSR (Nonstop Routing) is broke under the conditions. Traffic outage will be observed after performing GRES.
PR Number Synopsis Category: OSPF routing protocol
1561414 Wrong SPF calculation might be observed for OSPF with ldp-synchronization hold-time configured after interface flap
On all Junos platforms with LDP protocol configured on an interface, set the interface type p2p in OSPF and configure ldp-synchronization with hold-time for the same interface, after flapping the interface, the wrong SPF calculation due to pointing to the old link might happen and this might cause a routing loop and traffic outage.
PR Number Synopsis Category: MPLS Point-to-Multipoint TE
1415384 In a large scale P2MP deployment, LSPs may go down randomly across the network due to repeated make-before-break event happening in P2MP sub-lsps
In a large-scale P2MP LSP deployment where one P2MP LSP can have 100s of sub-LSPs when a sub-LSP undergoes path change event ? due to interface flap, all the sub-LSPs of the same P2MP LSP have to undergo a make-before-break (MBB) event. By default, all the sub-LSPs have to complete the MBB event within the default timeout of 30 seconds. If there is a sub-LSP that is not able to complete its MBB event within this time frame, the software triggers all the sub-LSPs to restart the MBB event. This usually keeps happening in a cycle. Because of the cyclical nature of these MBB events, if the scale of the P2MP LSP is high, the internal RSVP-related tasks may not be able to keep up with the update processing on that node. Hence, the router will not be able to exchange the RSVP control messages with neighboring routers in a timely manner. This causes LSPs to go down. In a large-scale network involving full-mesh P2MP LSPs, the issue can move from one node to another node which results in LSPs going down randomly across the network.

1542931 Tail drops might occur on branch SRX platforms if shaping-rate is configured on lt- interface
On the branch SRX platforms, if shaping-rate greater than 2 Mbps and lower than 10Mbps is set on the lt- interface, the maximum traffic rate might not reach shaping-rate, or there might be tail drops during traffic burst.

1538960 Major error "XQ_CMERROR_SCHED_L3_PERR_ERR" might cause PFE(s) to disable
On EX9200 platforms with EX9200-6QS/MX platforms with MPC2E/3E/5E(Q)/SRX5K platforms with MPC3, PFE(s) on that FPC(s) might be disabled due to a major alarm "XQ_CMERROR_SCHED_L3_PERR_ERR". Without the fix, this major alarm triggered "disable-pfe" action. This defect could be seen if there is a parity error in the L3 node static memory.

1562120 The interface statistics might be reported incorrectly if a large scale of interfaces is configured
On the MX/EX92xx/SRX5x00 Trio based platforms, the interface statistics might be reported incorrectly if a large scale of interfaces is configured. In the adaptive load balance (ALB) use case, the ALB uses these statistics to determine the load-balancing between the member links of the AE bundle, if wrong interface statistics are used, the traffic imbalance on the egress interface will be observed.

1562474 DHCPv4 request packets might be wrongly dropped when DDOS attack happens
On MX platform, T4000 platform and EX9200 platform, end-users or end-hosts might not get an IPv4 address from Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server when Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDOS) attack is happened on DHCP rebind packets or renew packets. In the end, end-users or end-hosts could not access into network after lease time of the IPv4 address expired.

1557278 Stream buffer memory leak might happen when UTM is configured under unified policies.
On all Junos platforms that support unified policies (layer 7 application), stream buffer memory leak might happen when Unified Threat Management (UTM) Antivirus Protection (AV)/ Antispam Filtering (AS)/Content Filtering (CF) is configured under unified policies. If the stream buffer memory is exhausted, traffic related to UTM will be affected.

1561980 An enhancement to enable watchdog petting log on PTX10K Line Cards
An enhancement to enable watchdog petting log on line cards on QFX10XXX platforms. A quick note on watchdog timer: If all is well, a watchdog daemon process will consistently disarm the timer before it expires, and subsequently re-enable it; this is known as petting the dog. If the daemon does not disarm the watchdog timer (due to something having gone badly wrong), the watchdog timer expires and the system reboots.

1559802 SPU crash might be seen under GPRS Tunneling protocol scenario
In SRX series devices, if mobile handover between SGSN/SGW more than once, and the last handover is GTPv1 to GTPv2 (3G -> LTE), then both cluster nodes may crash and cause a disruption in the traffic.
PR Number Synopsis Category: Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol
1558560 Junos device might send VRRP advertisement packets in VRRP init or idle state before startup-silent-period timer expiry after performing GRES on VRRP master device with NSR disabled
If VRRP master device has dual Routing Engines (REs) and GRES enabled but nonstop-routing (NSR) disabled, after performing GRES, both REs will move to VRRP init then idle state and the new master RE will send VRRP advertisement packets in this stage before startup-silent-period timer expiry. Since the VRRP backup device can still receive the VRRP advertisement packets with higher priority, it will not transition to VRRP master state and hence cause the longer traffic downtime until the VRRP master device re-take the VRRP mastership after startup-silent-period timer expiry.
