High CPU On Cisco 837 Router

Unanswered Question
Mar 15th, 2010

hi experts,

i checked there's a high CPU usage on this router but logs showed no indication on which process took most of the CPU. we're running site-to-site VPN on this router. not sure if this router can handle or support this feature. i'm also thinking this might be an IOS bug. kindly advise. thanks!
