This issue affects Junos OS 17.3, 18.3, 18.4, 19.1, 19.2, 19.3, 19.4. Affected
platforms: MX Series.
When DNS filtering is enabled on Juniper Networks Junos MX Series with one of
the following cards MS-PIC, MS-MIC or MS-MPC, an incoming stream of packets
processed by the Multiservices PIC Management Daemon (mspmand) process,
responsible for managing "URL Filtering service", may crash, causing the
Services PIC to restart. While the Services PIC is restarting, all PIC services
including DNS filtering service (DNS sink holing) will be bypassed until the
Services PIC completes its boot process.
If the issue occurs, system core-dumps output will show a crash of mspmand
