Description (partial)

High cpu on pktmgr process (mts-data thread) and consequently drop of ARP packet and slow or no responses for ARP request. This affecting data path traffic as well as remote ARP entries will start time out on local devices, hence traffic will not be sent due to incomplete ARP.

This can happen when OTV unicast mode is used and there is constant rate or constant burst rate of broadcast ARP traffic send from remote sites to ADJ server (approx 1000 arp request per second)
