My question is with regards to using the debug command. All Cisco notes say to use debugging with caution as the cpu utilization can spike very high.
Example if I were to turn debugging on to check on the serial interface connections by turning on the 'debug serial inteface', it should be okay as the debugs would be only for the serial interface of the router only as oppose to turning on 'debug ip packet' which would cause a high cpu utlization.
That being said, I am interested to know if there is a benchmark on when can we turn on the debug command so that it won't bring down the router ? ie) say when the CPU util is at 10%, it is
okay to turn on debugging ....
