' might take 6 seconds with 6.42 firmware, but 35 seconds with 6.61 firmware.
Telnet and Serial Console access respond well, with any firmware version.

Cause

This affects the response time regardless of whether or not the Secure Logging functionality has been user-enabled.

Solution

For the C5/B5/A4-Series, upgrade to firmware 6.71.01.0067 or higher.
