High CPU on Cisco 6500

Hello,

I'm facing a high CPU usage on a c6500 (VS-S720-10G) and can't figure out what is causing this high CPU usage.

Well it does not appear there

Well it does not appear there is a process consuming high CPU when you ran that command.  Is the CPU cycling through periods of high usage and not-so-high usage? Check:

show proc cpu history

Also try reading:
