In a Maestro/Chassis environment, there maybe a delay during TCP start negotiation for fully accelerated connections (FW only) which are distributed asymmetrically. For example, C2S distribute to member 1_1 and S2C to member 1_2.

To maintain the original behavior, follow these steps before starting the Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator upgrade:

  • Force the sticky behavior in the Correction Layer in the current session:

    g_fw ctl set int ccl_force_sticky 1

  • Force the sticky behavior in the Correction Layer permanently:

    g_update_conf_file fwkern.conf ccl_force_sticky=1
