Hello,


You are seeing high CPU due to interrupts (in the output of 44/42, 42

represents the percentage of cpu utilization for interrupts). This could be

due to the router sending lot of traffic to the CPU instead of doing CEF

switching. Please issue "show interface stats" and "show interface

accounting" to see if lot of packets are being processed by the processor.

Also, using "show interface accounting" output, see if you are seeing lot of

ARP/Broadcast traffic on the router. If you are, that could explain the high

cpu you are seeing.


Hope this helps.


Regards,


NT

Hello,


Please see a couple of similar responses I've posted on similar threads for this type of CPU usage -

Essentially, as Nagaraja indicated, the CPU is being driven up under interrupt.  Interrupt-based CPU is usually the result of traffic and/or features.  This occurs when the CPU is busy processing traffic within interrupt routines that includes the CEF look-up for the packet and any feature processing from the interface for which the packet came in on.  You will not see any processes with a high consumption in the list of 'show proc cpu sorted' with this type of behavior.  You'll also likely see that if your CPU drops down overnight or during various time periods throughout the day, this will correlate with decreased traffic levels.


Hope this helps.


Brandon
