2811 router needs to be reloaded every week.

It has been work for a year without problem. We didn't do any change. Recently, we have to reboot thist router to make it work. After the rebooting, the router will work for a while. It could work from few days to a week, and tt stops working again.

Any idea?

I think you need to look for a new IOS.  It looks like it is indeed a memory leak.

What do you mean "make it work"?  Describe the issue in more detail. 

If you can console into the router BEFORE the reboot, please post the following output:

1.  sh version; and

2.  sh proc cpu sort

Re: 2811 router needs to be reloaded every week.

Thanks guys, I have done sh version, sh processes cpu and sh processes memory

R1#sh ver

Cisco IOS Software, 2800 Software (C2800NM-ADVSECURITYK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

I attached the output. The CPU usage wasn't high. We are ISP. The router works as gateway to our customers. The throught is 10Mbits/s max. There is not inter-vlan routing.

Thanks again.

This morning, the router stopped working. The *Dead* memory pretty high. Is this memory leak issue?

After reloading router, the router works fine now.
