CPU doubles going from 12.4(4)T1 to 12.4(11)T1

We have a 7206VXR NPE-G1 which was running 12.4(4)T1 happily at around 25% CPU utilization. With the latest Cisco security patch alerts - we upgraded the IOS to 12.4(11)T1 and CPU immediately doubled. No config change.

It runs with C7200-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M. "sho proc cpu sorted" shows nothing higher than 1.5%.

It has a few GigaE interfaces and some FEs and pkt rates are as follows:

30 second input rate 92974000 bits/sec, 17418 packets/sec

30 second output rate 88059000 bits/sec, 17063 packets/sec

30 second input rate 102690000 bits/sec, 18859 packets/sec

30 second output rate 95586000 bits/sec, 18797 packets/sec

30 second input rate 1548000 bits/sec, 663 packets/sec

30 second output rate 6152000 bits/sec, 739 packets/sec

30 second input rate 2575000 bits/sec, 1025 packets/sec

30 second output rate 9037000 bits/sec, 1243 packets/sec

Many of the interfaces run NBAR (protocol discovery) as well as to rate-limit P2P. But all that ran fine pre-upgrade. Now CPU runs at 75%.

Ideas?

Thanks!

Can you execute "show proc cpu" and check which process/service is getting too much attention from CPU?

Use the troubleshooting recommendation in this link and let us know the outcome http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/63/highcpu.html#symptons

That link was of little use. The CPU doesn't indicate any problem. No individual process over 2%.

What is interesting is "show inter switching", but Output Intepreter didn't yield any insights. See attachment.
