WS-C3750X-24S hl3mm process issue.

We are running a stack of 2 WS-C3750X-24S-E's with IOS version 12.2(58)SE2 and we are seeing continuous high processor utilization involving the hl3mm process.  The stack is configured for PIM Sparse mode, with 2 upstream Nexus 5596'es acting as both RP candidates and as BSRs.  The hl3mm process generally runs at about 19% but can spike up into the 60% range.

Symptoms on the 3750X are spiking latency and sluggish CLI perfformance.  I thought at first that we might be running into SDM limits, but the "show platform tcam utilization" show that we are far under the limits of the default SDM template.  Performing the "show ip pim (vrf name) bsr-router" command freezes the system and takes 20-30 seconds to return results.  Similiarly configured WS-C3750G-12S running 12.2(55)SE3 does not exhibit these same issues.

So I guess my question is this - is anyone else seeing issues like this on the 3750X line of switches?

Yes we are seeing the same issue.

High processor utilization where the process is the hog:

PID Runtime(ms)   Invoked      uSecs   5Sec   1Min   5Min TTY Process

124   503369974   2707797     185902 29.14% 52.70% 56.08%   0 hl3mm 

We have a TAC case open.  They want us to turn off PIM, but can only do so for a brief period.

WS-C3750X-24S hl3mm process issue.

Hello,

As I'm having the same issue of HL3MM process in multicast environnement taking about 10 (agv) upto 30% of my CPU. Could you please tell me if your case was solved by any action ? (config or IOS upgrade) ?

Many thanks for your feedback,

Regards,

Christophe

WS-C3750X-24S hl3mm process issue.

Hi Christophe,

Unless you have critical reasons to run 12.2(58)SE, 15.0(1)SE, and 15.0(2)SE, avoid these IOS as they have various CPU bugs.

Investigate 12.2(55)SE6 instead.
