Cannot create VIPs: Too many WAF VSs configured already





Trying to configure a new VIP but am getting the following error: "Cannot create VIP(s): Too many WAF VSs configured already"


Product: LoadMaster

Version: Any

Platform: Any

Application: Any

Question/Problem Description:

Cannot create a new VIP due to too many WAF VSs existing.

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message: Cannot create VIP(s): Too many WAF VSs configured already
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Cause: Not enough memory to create new WAF enabled VS.  There were already 16 WAF enabled virtual services and the LoadMaster has 8GB of RAM.  Each instance of WAF uses 512 MB of RAM.
  • Check the Statistics > Real Time Statistics page.  This will show you relevant information regarding memory usage.
  • For Virtual Machines, power down the VLM first and then you will be able to add more memory.  Upon being powered back on, you should now be able to continue adding new services.
  • For Hardware units, please contact our Sales Team to discuss upgrading to a more powerful model.
  • the amount of RAM required depends on the number of connections, but it also depends on the number of virtual services created.  Each Virtual Service consumes a small amount of memory to save state information about the server. Each Real Server requires a small amount of additional CPU to perform health checks as well as 512KB of RAM for IP mapping tables.
