(I did dig up 5 bug's that might indicate high cpu utilization that you all might be interested in...TAC case next...)
100% CPU usage
CSC jumps to 100% CPU usage, but new connections can be established and
CSC-SSM module CPU pegged at 100% usage.
CSC SSM CPU usage at 100% when running 6.1.1569.1 image.
CSC HTTP scanner may have issues with a few websites (e.g., OCLC) or
cause 100% CPU busy.
I can go in to detail if needed but I'd rather ask one upfront question:
I have read several discussions, both here and elsewhere, that say the SSM module's rated performance numbers are far below their published numbers. (e.g. a CSC-SSM-20 in a 5540 is rated at 500 MB of throughput.)
Whether the underperformance is at 50% or 70%, is it a consensus opinion here that these modules under perform their published capabilities ??
-- I am currently seeing behavior that would tend to support this contention --
