Hi,

 

I am facing issue with my website hosted behind F5, it works properly but sometime page is not loading fully, based on the issue we took the packet capture and can see the logs "TCP zerowindow" message is senting by F5 to Server and "TCP window full" message is sending by Server to F5 and F5 is reset the connection after this message. We did the fine-tuning for TCP profile but still the same issue, Kindly need support to solve this issue.

Hi mithuuu85,

What TCP profile you use ? (tcp, tcp-lan-optimized, tcp-progressive and so on) and what tunning did you make on the TCP Profile ?

Hi,

 

Initially i have used default TCP profile "TCP" , Then used TCP-wan-optimized, TCP-Lan-Optimized and F5-TCP-Mobile profile are used but none of them worked,then we configured custom TCP profile by increasing "Zero window timeout" and "Retransmit threashold" value but no luck.

 

 

When you increase the Zero Window Timeout on F5 BIG-IP TCP profile, did you respect the timeout values in multiples of 5000 ?

 

Have you try to activate the Indefinite parameter ?

Hi ,

 

We increase the Zero Window Timeout: 45000 milliseconds and how to activate Indefinite parameterm , can you please guide me on this.

 

Regards,

You have only shown your observations of the traffic between F5 and the back-end application servers. What were the characteristics of the traffic between your client and F5?

HI,

Below are the Packet observed between Client to F5 and to server during the issue occurrence time.

1) Server responses with TCP Window Full

2) Then F5 respond back with TCP Zero Window from self-ip

3) we can see RST which is PSH ACK from the virtual server to the client

4) Then self-ip resets the connection to pool member due to rst from client.

 

Also we observed if the page was not loading fully and if we do some changes on the Virtual server after that page will open properly looks like new session/Cache clearing will make to work again.

 

This issue is not coming when we bypass the F5, It is working perfectly fine without any problem .

I am afraid this description is not clear/detailed enough to show what is really happening in the traffic of the client <-> F5, and F5 <-> app server.

I don't see anything conclusive from the above data.

 

What sort of the client was involved, and did this occur to more than one client?

mithuuu85

Hi,

 

client is normal desktop and we are facing this issue with all the client accessing the VIP.

You can also approach the issue from the client-side from Layer 7 perspective. Open Developer's tool bar from the web browser. Check Network traces and Console logs while going through 1) F5 virtual, 2) Direct, and compare.

Is 10.1.221.150 a virtual server ip?

Yes 10.1.221.150 is the vip ip.

Since the server IP is 10.1.221.152, it's a one-arm setup. Have you also enable "SNAT" on the virtual?

Can you share the config here? Output from the following commands. Sanitize them if you need.

 

# tmsh ltm list virtual <virtual_name>

# tmsh ltm list pool <pool_name>

Are all your clients in VLAN-221?

Hi,

 

Clients accessing VIP are in different vlan and we have different vlan in F5 , Few servers are hosted in Vlan-221 and few are in other vlan , But we face issue only for a specific VIP, others are working fine.

For the sake of troubleshooting, enable access for all vlans and see if the issue persists.

We got some findings, The same site is working fine on another F5 which is using Version 12 .

 

I think looks like bug issue in version 13 which is not working .

Packets were being lost/retransmitted between the client and 10.1.221.150. Anything meaningful you can spot in /var/log/ltm ?

 

What's the config of you VS?

mithuuu85

Nimbostratus

VS setup is standard with no SSL Offload and 1 pool member.

 

There is no log scene on /var/log/ltm, Logs we observed on the packet capture is "TCP zerowindow" message is senting by F5 to Server and "TCP window full" message is sending by Server to F5 then keep-alive message is senting by Server to F5 but F5 is reset the connection after this message.

You can change the VS type to "Performance (Layer 4)" and see if that makes a difference.

We did that as well, but same issue exist

Hi mithuuu85, i'm experimenting the same behavior in client enviroment.

How you finally resolved this issue!?
