We have a couple of 6509E at our core running hsrp between them. In addition we have 4 backup servers each with a gig connection back to Core1. Core1 has the majority of services/servers on it. We now have a need to go with 10G connections from the backup servers to the core and we are wondering if we should go with the 10G connections to Core2 or Core1? We are concerned because the load on Core1 gets heavy at times and was wondering if putting the 10G on Core2 will help any. Attached is CPU usage for last 72 hours on Core1 which currently has the 4 backup servers with gig connections.
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
