DCEF process is running at 75%

Can you advise if there is some way to determine why this particular CEF process on slot 2 is running at 75% while the rest appears to be around 30%?

I would like to increase the CEF alarm parameters to stop the logs on the router being filled with the CEF resource messages, but I am concerned that this process is running higher than the others.

Hi mayambanzumba,

I think you would have better luck posting this question to a different forum.
