As the title says, I have a problem with a 2960. When I arrived this morning to the office it was at 99% cpu utilization, permanently. I've issued a show process cpu sorted to localize the problematic process and I've found it is HTTP CP, with a 92-95% of cpu time for it. I shutted down the http secure-server expecting it to disappear from the table, but nothing happend. I issued the process-watchdog terminate, normal and hang commands, and it remains the same.
Even worse. I can't check the running or startup config because it says "Unable to read configuration. ry againg later". I can do a "more config.text" succesfully.
I've searched on the inernet and can't find anything about HTTP CP, neither about being unable to read the running or startup.
By the other way, the catalyst is forwarding packets as usual and there are enough memory free (>30MB for processor) and I can ssh to it.
I'll appreciate any help to let me get rid of this obnoxius process and to be able to read the config again. Thank you.
See if there are any hung sessions or sessions that should not be there with the show users command . Terminate any sessions that should not be there otherwise switch reboot may be your only option . Unless you happen to use the gui interface never leave the http function active in the config.
