Is there a way to allocate CPU or memory resources to specific processes - similar to a QoS-style configuration where you can prioritize the processes being handled by the CPU? We have a 2811 router whose CPU periodically spikes to 100% utilization. At these times, all of our EIGRP neighbor adjacencies bounce - either a peer goodbye is received or the hold time expires.
Our thinking is that we could possibly tell the router to prioritize the EIGRP process with the CPU so that routing is maintained, even though we realize other processes (like qos or ISAKMP for our tunnels) may suffer.
Thanks...I do have a TAC case open already for the EIGRP neighbor bounces. I've asked them, but they don't believe you can do that on this platform. My colleague has told me we've done this on a 3750 switch, so I wanted to see if it was possible on a 2800 series router.
