catalyst 4948 high CPU ?

Hello Ttermirgaliyev,

there is a specific document about high cpu on C4500 and C4948 and there is the case of the C4K Mgmt Processes

see

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps663/products_tech_note09186a00804cef15.shtml

You can follow the guidelines to identify the reasons of the issue

Re:catalyst 4948 high CPU ?

Hi,

As I can see, the process is the loPri this process as well as the hiPri are normally related to traffic, if you do a "show platform health" you will see the specific proceds that is going over que target.

You can also do a debug to see the interface(s) that are flooding que CPU:

"debug platform cpu packet all count"

Wait over 10 seconds and do a:

"show platform cpu packet statistics"

And you will see the interfaces that are sending traffic to the CPU and if you shut the specific port, the Cpu will go down and you know what is causing the issue.

You can also enable:

"mac address-table notification mac-move"

It will reveal with a show log if there is MAC flapping which also causes high CPU on this platform.

You can also take an sniffer directly to the switch's CPU by connecting a laptop running wireshark and configuring the following at the switch:

"monitor session 1 source cpu"

"monitor session 1 destination interface g#/#"

This interface is where the PC will be connected. With this you will see the exact ip address that is hammering the CPU.

Note, some commands might not work depending on the IOS.
