which platform are you using?

I noticed something similar in the past on Cat4006.

The reason were some http server configurations and an CatOS bug.

The only solution was a switch reset.

But I also lost a part of the config.

So I strongly recommend an immediate running config backup!!!

Another possible reason might be a network management system failure. It might be trying to read the startup config all the time in a loop.
