It is not necessarily an issue with your switches. When you are logged in via the vty lines and you issue a command like "sh tech" there is a large amount of data to be displayed and it is normal for the CPU to spike when it does this -

Q. How can we reduce the process for SSH on 6500?

A. If it is virtual exec, that is used for servicing vty lines, Vty lines are used for logging into the switch. If we are trying to dump a huge output like "show tech", it is expected to see high CPU and is not a matter for concern.

so what you are seeing is normal. But what is not normal is the display getting hung and having to open a new session.

So if it happens all the time it would be a problem but it could just be that at that particular time the switch was busy doing other things that also placed a load on the CPU.

It may not be the cause of the high CPU it may be a symptom. See this thread for more details -
