Your command set there is pretty straightforward. I don't see a specific bug associated with that release but the TAC would probably advise an upgrade. Your release is from December 2011 and 12.2(33)SXI12 is current (reference).

Thanks Marvin.
What I observed is that even when I issue show running config the cpu shoots to 50 plus. Only when the command is issued via ssh connection. If I access the switch from console the cpu stays normal around 10 percent.
Anyone having the same issue please help.
