I was using LMS 3.2, Ciscoview to open a view on a 6500 that has 2 WS-SUP720-3B supervisors and is running s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH4.bin.
The device was taking a bit to open up, so I clicked it a couple more times and a couple of minutes later it finally opened.
At the same time I had a telnet session to the device and noted thru sh proc cpu sorted that the SNMP ENGINE had spiked to 95% utilization.
Could Ciscoview be the cause of this? I have found through testing that multiple clicks can cause a small cpu jump (6% - 12%) but I haven't yet reproduced the 95% utilization I saw that day.
Is there an initial discovery that Ciscoview first does to gather it's information that's more intensive than subsquent polling?
