4507 SUP IV CPU

Hello,

I have a strange issue here. I have a 4507R switch with a Supervisor IV (with latest IOS). The supervisor's CPU has been hitting 50-60% on an average basis. the cpu is being utilised by a process :

29 17831136 69515333 256 7.03% 7.06% 7.18% 0 Cat4k Mgmt HiPri

30 139714216 32560470 4290 53.03% 53.43% 51.05% 0 Cat4k Mgmt LoPri

Cat 4k Mgmt LoPri takes most of the processing. I have seen this URL:

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

show platform health shows the following:

K2L2 Address Table R 2.00 28.26 12

by which this K2L2 process takes 28 %, which has been reserved 2 % in the CPU. I'm sure there are some unwanted traffic which causes this kind of CPU. The customer has 2 or 3 SAP servers, which is been accessed by close to 200 users. the traffic utilisation for SAP is only close to 300 MB.

anyone has faced such issues?

Re: 4507 SUP IV CPU

"K2L2 Address Table R" is a MAC learning process. Check for any MAC addresses flapping. If they are, you would see messages like "%C4K_EBM-4-HOSTFLAPPING:..". If you do, see if you have any STP loop or misconfigured servers for etherchannel.

Re: 4507 SUP IV CPU

The problem was with MAC address flapping.. Taken care of that and the CPU is now 15 % !!!

Thanks for your response
