IDSM CPU 1 High Probleme

Hi everyone.

My name is wan tae kim in korea.

I have the question to idsm problem.
Is using idsm by ips mode in our customer.
Cpu1 will be continued in 100% state but does not know cause.
Is used by Inline mode but need Configuration verification.
I want to receive steers of many persons.

I ask counsel whether take Configuration.

IDSM Configuration:

! ------------------------------

Thank you.

Re: IDSM CPU 1 High Probleme

Hi Wan Tae Kim,

    
The 100% CPU utilization is actually expected behavior and should not be cause for concern.  To confirm the actual load on the sensor you can use the command:

show stat virt

and check the line "Processing Load Percentage ="


Additionally, you can check the output of:

show int

and verify that the number of "Receive FIFO Overruns" is low/zero, indicating that the sensor is able to keep up with the rate of traffic being sent to it via your SPAN session.

Here are examples of both outputs with the important lines in bold
