F5 BIG IP LTM VE tmm re

Hello everyone 🙂

 

I am trying to integrate a F5 LTM VE (15.1.x) on my ESXI.

Just after the deploiment, the console is crawling under broadcast message about tmm, here an example :

 

Broadcast message from systemd-journald@hostname (Wed 2019-04-24 12:33:07 CEST): logger[13322]: Re-starting tmm3

 

It seems to be related to the virtual network device from Vsphere.

I also tried to list my current interfaces with tmsh list net interface, but the interface have no MAC address, thats weird right ?

 

Does anyone had this situation before ?

 

Best Regards

Ok, i have found a solution on this.

It seems that my esxi is not delivering amount of memory I asked for.

 

I reduced the memory per VM and now everything seems to work correctly.

 

Thanks !

Hi Fouad,

did you pick the OVA and loaded it into your ESXi ? and checked compatibilty with your ESXi version ?

and when you start the VE from the OVA, be sure to not upgrade the ovftools inside your VE.

HTH

Hi Philipe,

 

Yes the ESXI is compatible with my version of F5 LTM, and I did not upgraded the ovftools in my VM.

The broadcast are happening right after the boot.

 

If I try to get the mac adress from my interface with this command :

 

tmsh list net interface

 

The broadcast message start for sure every time ...

Hi again,

 

I checked the file /var/log/tmm and I have this error message all over the file

 

<13> Jan 28 08:11:10 node-02 notice map_tmm_memory: set_mempolicy 0 node 0x0 failed 22 (Invalid argument)

 

Hmm seems to be a memory problem ....
