Description (partial)

After issuing the invalid request, the cfmd process on the source LC will consume high CPU for a 
prolonged period and the results of the operation may not be display - instead a timeout error will 
be seen. Additionally, CFM will not react to timeouts/errors during the CPU spin.

In some cases, an abnormal restart of cfmd may be seen on the source LC with a stack trace 
matching the decoded traceback attached to this DDTS.

The bug is only triggered in the case where an on-demand operation is scheduled with a duration 
which is shorter than the time between packets/bursts - e.g.

ethernet sla on-demand operation type cfm-delay-measurement probe send packet every 1 
minutes domain dom1 source interface GigabitEthernet 0/0/0/0.2 target mac-address a.b.c 
schedule in 30 seconds for 30 seconds

The key part is, for "send packet every X ... schedule ... for Y" the issue will only be hit 
if Y is less than X. (i.e. in the above example, 30 seconds is less than 1 minute)
