Description (partial)

Traffic loss through IPSEC tunnels (at the time of Phase-2 rekey). After the re-key, the NatIN2out drop counter is seen to increment on the router performing the ESP NAT:

BGL.I.06-ASR1000-1#sh plat hardware qfp active statistics drop 
Global Drop Stats                         Packets                  Octets  
NatIn2out                                       5                     670  <<<<<<<<<  NatIN2out drops

NAT is implemented in such a way that the Tunnel end points are not aware of it, therefore, NAT-T does not come into picture and the VPN endpoints do not encapsulate ESP into UDP\4500.
