We numerically analyze a delay differential equation model of a short-cavity semiconductor laser with an intracavity frequency-swept filter and reveal a complex bifurcation structure responsible for the asymmetry of the output characteristics of this laser. We show that depending on the direction of the frequency sweep of a narrow-band filter, there exist two bursting cycles determined by different parts of a continuous-wave solutions branch.
