Please do "switchcc " and check the snmp usage.Are you using SNMP for polling devices ?
Details about processes :
The root process is the default startup process. This process initializes the databases,creates message exchanges (mailboxes), creates the other processes and terminates.
The resource handler process manages resources. It is the highest priority switch software process. It preempts other processes that communicate with it.
The CBUS process handles between the processor card and other cards in the node. It interfaces with the CBUS co-processor through the DPRAM (dual port RAM).
The network process sends and receives network messages to other nodes and the standby CC. It performs network route optimization. In the IPX it is the interface to the MUXBUS FIFO'S. In the BPX it is the interface to the SAR coprocessor.
The transaction handler executes state tables. It routes events, including timers, to the proper state tables.
The failure handler processes failure notification events. It handles the log,broadcasts,and prints alarms. It supports StrataView maintenance logging.
The SNMP process supports the SNMP agent features. It handles SNMP
communications and translates between the internal protocols and controls and SNMP commands.
The protocol process handles the protocol for communication between the node and StrataView Plus. It sends and receives application information to SV+.
The priority bump process handles the background rerouting algorithm that preempts lower COS connections. This process does not exist in switch software revisions after release 8.2.
This process handles communications through the control and auxiliary ports.It writes to the Flash PROM.
The ILMI process handles the ILMI ATM protocol for ATM signaling in the BPX.
If processes are configured not to be displayed (cnfprf) their statistics are summarized in the last entry line which is called 'SUMM'.
VT-1(-6) - Virtual terminal task. Executes user commands remotely.
I am truly impressed, thank you very much for your prompt detailed replies, but would the "switchcc" command help me, my knowledge is that it switches between the active and standby BCC cards, how would it help me with the snmp issue.
Yes i am using SNMP for monitoring the devices, but is it normal for it to consume around 40% of the BPX's processor ?
You mentioned that you are using snmp for device polling..snmp usage depends on number of devices it is polling ad how frequently it is polling..snmp is sing 40% of cpu ..i think it is normal..no need to worry about it..If possible i will post some info about dspprf command.
