My Cat 6500 is acting strange, the "ip input" processes is running the CPU to over 50% which is causing issues on my network. Does this mean that the IP packets are not being processed at layer 2? Has anyone seen this?
>> the "ip input" processes is running the CPU to over 50%
this means that a big quota of traffic is process switched = sent to main cpu instead of being CEF switched.
You need to understand why this is happening.
For example other collegues have reported very high cpu after having enabled DHCP snooping.
Also check if you have any SPAN sessions.
we have seen that if a SPAN session is trying to push more traffic then what the destination port can support ( for example 3 Gbps towards a 1 GE destination port) when oversubscription is high cpu can reach 100%.
Turns out I found a routing loop on my network ... spt failed open as is it's default and BOOM!!! Broadcast storm .. so I physically killed the redundant link to my cat and voila spt found it's feet again.
