Cisco Nexus dropping commands due to old Linux kernel bug

Alexander Bochmann Tuesday 09 of May, 2017
Ivan Pepelnjak got feedback about his earlier post where he complains that Nexus OS is dropping lines from commands that are pasted into a terminal session with the system.

The drops were caused by a very old bug in Linux TTY device driver introduced in 2009, discovered in Ubuntu ~4 years ago and present in all Linux distributions with kernels between 2.6.31 and 3.11.0.
