Re: NTP process taking 10% of CPU utilization

Is it keep receiving NTP packet from somewhere ? I think only remove and add the NTP command will restart the process. If it does not work, you may need to restart the chassis.

Hope this helps.

Re: NTP process taking 10% of CPU utilization

If after removing process your utilisation is still 10% and those 10% are actually taken by NTP process, then it looks like dormant process and probably requires restart of the supervisor engine. Before restarting you may want to search Bug Navigator for NTP bugs or/and open TAC case.

If after removing NTP 10% are actually occupied by something else (or mentioned after / in first line of sh proc cpu output), then surely it's not NTP process itself but might be traffic that eroneously ended up in NTP process.
