Re: High CPU

Hi,

What is your IOS version? Please post "show version" output.

CEF Scanner process computes new L2 adjacency when there is a MAC rewrite.

Re: High CPU

Hi,

There's multiple problem with that IOS including high CPU util, not CEF Scanner though but I recommend you upgrade your IOS first.

HI Wilson, [Pls Rate if Helps ! !]

We too had the same problem of over loaded CPU of 7206 VXR Router upto 85% in a Site.

After several Investigations, we already had "Netflow" implemented in our Routers. Noticed that Several Client IP's in BO has communicated to single IP in HO for particular service & initiated more than 1000 IP sessions. This made the CPU Load go High upto 85%

So, without any best analyser like "Netflow" you will not be able to Investigate & Identify the Root Cause for this Situation.

Pls Rate If Helps ! !

Best Regards,

Re: High CPU

Hi,

I add my voice to Guru, enable Netflow on the interface and try to investigate any malicious traffic.

interface x

ip route-cache flow

and then do "sh ip cache flow".

HTH, please rate if it does help,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
