2811 99% CPU High IP Input

Hello,

Our 2811 Edge router is having extremely high CPU problems. IP Input is consuming 70% of the process during business hours. Cisco express forwarding is enabled. It only shows 50% but its currently before business hours. Id say even 50% is still high.

CPU utilization for five seconds: 55%/16%; one minute: 70%; five minutes: 76%

PID Runtime(ms)     Invoked      uSecs   5Sec   1Min   5Min TTY Process

104     5310320     2813117       1887 36.92% 46.73% 51.43%   0 IP Input        

The below interface is our public interface and is constantly over utilized with 100% Is there any configurations that can be done to correct this? Is there any more information that is needed? Please indicate any command if it can be done live as this is production and I cannot take it down on whim.

Hi Nicholas,

try to enabled debug ip packet detail as indicated in the doc to see which type of traffic is being process-switched. that will help understand what is going on.

BTW, if your IOS supports it, sorted would have been a nice option to use when displaying your CPU stats.

Hmm, looking at your stats .  .  .

CPU utilization for five seconds: 82%/75%; one minute: 76%; five minutes: 76%

Most of your utilization appears to be interrupt CPU.  What's the aggregate traffic load?

You're really worried about ARP Input at 3/10 of a percent?

IP Input isn't too high.  Maybe a little higher than we would like.  Generally, it represents non fast-path packet forwarding.  It can have many causes, including the nature of the traffic.  Have you reviewed the whitepapers on troubleshooting high IP Input?
