Fix Pack History

You must restart the appliance after you apply this fix pack. The fixes are not applied until the restart is complete.
Defect 17365
Fix hang in LMI when refreshing support info, snapshot, and LUDBA pages.
Caused by long delay during extraction of comment from large files.
Defect 17421
Fix fdexporter being killed by watchdog un-necessarily when on busy
The fdexporter can take a while to complete the sqlite updates on busy
networks now that extra indices were added to speed up LMI display of on-box flowdata.
The watchdog timeout was extended and an advanced tuning parameter added to
allow modification in the field if necessary (i.e. flowdata.exporter.watchdogTime).
An additional side effect of this fixpack is to resolve the situation where the
watchdog restart left the fdexporter in the "UNCONFIGURED" state requiring a
disable/enable sequence before it would resume exporting.

alpsd was aborting due to a watchdog timeout.
Enforce a bounds check when processing DCA results.
