  • Fragmented packets are sent to the VM from outside. Now application deployed on the VM is not receiving the fragmented packets.
  • UDP Packet receive errors in netstat output are seen to be increasing while initiating the application communication.
  • This application server is communicating via keepalived loadbalancer in between.
