3750x ping and cpu usage

HI,

I have a couple "problems"

first of all, someone explain to me how I have total 12% cpu usage, just interesting:

 

switch#show processes cpu sorted
CPU utilization for five seconds: 12%/0%; one minute: 13%; five minutes: 11%
PID Runtime(ms) Invoked uSecs 5Sec 1Min 5Min TTY Process
75 19872 3283 6053 3.67% 3.63% 2.97% 0 RedEarth Tx Mana
74 8910 5058 1761 1.59% 1.62% 1.36% 0 RedEarth I2C dri
165 471 214 2200 1.43% 0.59% 0.13% 1 SSH Process
119 4245 507 8372 0.79% 0.79% 0.66% 0 hpm counter proc
159 309 11981 25 0.15% 0.05% 0.02% 0 Hulc LED Process
170 827 120 6891 0.15% 0.15% 0.15% 0 HQM Stack Proces
1 0 7 0 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0 Chunk Manager

for 5 secs must be - 7.78%, ok 8%.

or we have this "smart" mathematic":

3.67 -> 4

1.59 -> 2

1.43 -> 2

0.79 -> 1

0.15 -> 1

0.15 -> 1

but any way:

4+2+2+1+1+1 = 11% not 12%.

 

 

second question, why this process ALWAYS uses my CPU:

RedEarth Tx Mana

RedEarth I2C dri

how to fix this" problem"?

 

probable you say this "not affecting" on traffic, ok then my last and most important question:

I believe problem #3 coming from "problem #1 and #2.

 

question #3,

why I have undestable ping responce from this switch, device is pinging  directly connected to the switch port with 1 gbit/s speed, rg45 cable.

response from switch:

Reply from 10.10.0.254: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

the device is Cisco 3750X

Same behaviour under IOS:

15.2.4E10

15.0.2.SE12

12.2.55.SE13

 

Config is very close to factory default, nothing special.

 

Cisco Guru you are welcome.

Re: 3750x ping and cpu usage

RedEarth is associated to STP.
RedEarth is high, for example, if you've got ports that are flapping.

Re: 3750x ping and cpu usage

thanks for the response, 

any idea how to make less use CPU? maybe someone settings?

I had just this in my config:

 

spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst
spanning-tree extend system-id

Re: 3750x ping and cpu usage

Well if you have ports that are flapping, that'll kick up STP.

Re: 3750x ping and cpu usage

But i do not have any flapping in my “show logging” responce.

this enabled by default, I have logs about switch on ports interfaces from "booting period", but nothing after.

Re: 3750x ping and cpu usage

The "missing" CPU might be bound up in "interrupt" CPU and/or other incorrectly summed up CPU usage. I.e. a possible bug, that could span various IOS implementations. Possibly even known, internally to Cisco, but also perhaps way, way down on a "to-be-fixed" list.

"probable you say this "not affecting" on traffic, ok then my last and most important question:"

The reason we'll often say that, in a case like yours, your CPU usage isn't a problem, is because, ideally, data plane processing is performed by dedicated ASICs, not the main CPU. I.e., so, in theory, CPU might even be running at 100%, with no impact to data traffic forwarding.

BTW, not withstanding this case, higher than normal/expected CPU, on a switch, though, can represent other issues, and/or be an issue for data traffic forwarding.

"why I have undestable ping responce from this switch, device is pinging directly connected to the switch port with 1 gbit/s speed, rg45 cable."

Ping responses, from any host, especially to switches and routers, can be highly variable, as it's a low-priority function on the host. Ping was designed more to determine a host is "alive", not as a true network latency performance metric.

To receive a much more accurate ping network latency measurement, from Cisco switches/routers, you'll want to enable a SLA responder on the device (if supported), and use a SLA ping.

my interrupt is zero:
CPU utilization for five seconds: 12%/0%; one minute: 13%; five minutes: 11%
wheres 12%/0% showed this.

this just theory.

First of all, you still not understand different between ping and latency, like and 99.999999% peoples at this world :).

 

Any cheap device provide correct ping response but for cisco we need something special, common Friend, this device definitely has a problem, ping response 200ms not under loading - its problem, end of the story, or you not agree and still will statement this is normal? just curious.

This is just ONE PC, right?  What about others?  Are you seeing the same behaviour? 

Post the complete output to the following commands: 

sh version
sh log
sh proc cpu h
