7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

We have a high cpu utilization problem on our Internet 7513 router.

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

Hello,

do you have a CCO logon ? I checked the bug toolkit and there are a couple of bugs in 12.1-20 which might apply to you, but since I haven´t seen your config I cannot say for sure. Check out this link for the bugs related to high CPU utilization in version 12.1-20:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/bugnav2.pl?swver1=&fset1=&severity1=&resultsperpage1=&target1=&train1=&swver=12.1&target=20&train=%3F&mdf_label=Cisco+IOS+Releases&rneflag=1&swver2=1009&target2=1321&train2=%3F&fset=%3F&keyw=cpu&operator=a...

You might also have hit the Blaster or Nachi worm, which causes high CPU utilization as well. Check out these links:

For the Nachi worm:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_tech_note09186a00801b143a.shtml

For the Blaster worm:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_tech_note09186a00801aedd6.shtml

And last but not least, since there doesn´t seem to be a specific process responsible for the CPU utilization, it might be due to high interrupts. Check out this document to troubleshoot high CPU utilization on 7500 routers due to interrupts:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/hw/routers/ps359/products_tech_note09186a00801c2af0.shtml#inapprop_swpath

Lots of documents...

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

It is indeed due to interrupts, which generally means inappropriate switching path (i.e., not CEF) and/or too many packets. If CEF is enabled and being used for most packets (look at 'show interface switching' or 'show cef not-cef-switched' to confirm) then there may be worms of some sort on your network causing a lot of excess traffic.

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

I would chek the output of show alignment, and if the numbers there are not high and increasing, then it's definitely traffic. I can't say this is high, since I don't know the "normal" traffic load on the router, but if it is high, then I'd agree that it's probably some sort of worm on your network/etc.

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

I can't check the output of show alignment..T.T

7513router#sh alignment

No alignment data has been recorded.

No spurious memory references have been recorded.

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

Hi,

Could you check if you have CEF enabled on the router. CEF is less CPU-intensive than fast/process switching.

If it is not enabled the output would be as follows:

Router#sh ip cef

%CEF not running

CEF can be enabled using the global config mode:

Router(config)#ip cef

CEF Overview:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1835/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00800ca7cb.html

Configuring CEF:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1835/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00800ca7cc.html

Hope this helps,

Rajesh

Re: 7513(RSP2)router high cpu utilization(99%)

Actually, that just means there are no alignment errors or spurious accesses, which means it's pure switching traffic taking up the processor time. It's just a straight traffic issue, which implies either a worm of some type, or perhaps a lot of stuff being done in the CEF path, or perhaps just a lot of traffic.

What sort of features do you have configured on the interfaces on this router? How much traffic load is it handling?
