Define: inet port exhaustion?

During various load tests within our environment, I'm seeing the following errors in our logs:



p-bigip1 local/tmm crit tmm[5406]: 01010201:2: Inet port exhaustion on 199.83.xx.xx to (proto 6)



I'm having little luck actually getting a definition of what it means - I assumed it meant number of connections are maxed out on a port...



Could someone please help with:


* General definition of port exhaustion


* Is there a known limit? Or, depends on hardware?


* Is the limit, per Port/per VIP? Can one port on one VIP being exhausted cause issues with other VIPs or the LTM in general?



Thanks so much,
