Have this issue that I need help with...

I have 2 525Pix's running 6.3(5) in failover...

The primary runs at a constant 60%-100% CPU usage and my inside and outside interfaces are running packet errors...

When show proc the only process' that is high is 557Poll, Pix/Inf1 and Pix/Inf3.

If I switch over to the standby the problem persists.

Is SNMP configured on the PIX and are you using any monitoring software which connects to the pix via SNMP. What kind of logging is setup on the pix.
