What is the utilization level of the CPU and memory of the CSS 11501 that is considered acceptable by Cisco standard?

Css has processors & memory installed on each module.

The upper threshold for each processor utilization should be 80%.

If Cpu utilization remain constant over 80% then you need to either

increase the capacity or filter the traffic passing through CSS.

Lower threshold for free memory should be 25% of the total memory available on that module.

Memory leak also play a role in reduction of free memory. Restarting the CSS will give you a better picture

in case of a memory leak.

Hope it helps
