Hello Matt.

Wow, the PIX is on fire!!!!

This high CPU usage is because of the amount of traffic going through the Firewal..

My recomendation

clear the interface counters and do

clear interface

then do

show interface | include errors

Provide the output and after 5 minutes

show interface | include errors

Then where you see the highest amount of errors create captures such as

cap cap_name interface inside (if inside showed more errors) headers-only

Afterwards provide us

show cap cap_name

I will try to look for a loop or connection taking everything
