High CPU Utilization

We have a high cpu utilization problem on our Internet 7206 router. Here is the output of sh proc cpu:

CPU utilization for five seconds: 93%/92%; one minute: 93%; five minutes: 92%

As you can see, the high CPU utilization is caused by interrupts (92%).

We don't have any atm or voice ports on the router.

Anyone can help in troubleshooting this problem?

Re: High CPU Utilization

Thank you, but this doc didn't help me.

Does anyone have any specific suggestion?

Re: High CPU Utilization

Give us `sh processes cpu` output.

Re: High CPU Utilization

Hello,

here are the suggestions from the output interpreter:

An inappropriate switching path is configured on the router. If you have a

Cisco 7000 or Cisco 7500 series router, try improving its performance by

using the 'ip route-cache {path}' command (path can be cef, distributed, or

cbus, depending on the platform). If there are access lists linked to

interfaces or if ip accounting is turned on, configure NetFlow switching

using the 'ip route-cache flow' command.

- The CPU is performing memory alignment corrections. If there are

%ALIGN-3-CORRECT messages logged, then the high CPU utilization is caused by

memory alignment corrections. Capture the output of the 'show align' command,

decode the tracebacks and search for a bug in your version of IOS.

- The router is overloaded with traffic. Use the 'show interfaces' command and

paste into Output Interpreter to determine which interface is overloaded

- There maybe a bug in the version of IOS running on the router. Check the Bug Navigator

for a bug that reports similar symptoms in a similar environment.
