Additional Information

It happens when proxy creates a data structure to store the details (like activity time, timeouts, accessed contracts etc) of a user that is logged into NAM system, but, it really hadn't received that information.
For example, initial request for authentication lands in one LAG say lag1, and lag1 creates the data structure for that user.
But, subsequent requests land in other LAG say lag2. lag1 doesn't have any information about the logged in user other than the empty data structure. Those data structures gets cleared every 30 seconds (there is a thread to do this) and that time, we may see these messages in logs.
