High CPU when tranferring data between VLANs on the same subinterface

Hi 

i have Cisco 2821 with 2 subinterfaces on the G0/0, with 2 different VLANs on them.

When i copy about 60 Mb/s between them, the CPU usage increase to 80-90 %, and start to drop the packets.

The CEF is on on all those subinterfaces.

Any recommendations ? 

many thanks

Here is the info about those subinterfaces:

Recommendation?  Yes, you may need a faster router.  At 60 Mbps, you might be bumping into the capacity limitations of the 2821.

Hi Joseph

thanks for your answer. Are you sure we reached the switching limit on the 2821 ?

In my posting, I pasted a snapshot of the 2821's performance.  However, it's not showing publicly, so try this link: http://www.cisco.com/web/partners/downloads/765/tools/quickreference/routerperformance.pdf
