As it can be seen Hulc LED process is utilising more than 14% .

Switch is not stacked.

 

Please help!!!

Nothing strange for this catalyst serie...you can find a lot of answers online related to that problem - I think that even cisco somewhere stated that observed utilization on 2960x series is correct and that it is normal behavior.

BTW it's a huge difference between them and ie regular 2960 or 2960S...

So - I think you should leave them working as they are and that's it...

Hi thats not really high cpu thats actually ok and that output is from 72hr which means it only spiked to 80 during that period it did not stay at that level , its running on average 30-40

second the HULC is a bug so cpu is only running at 15% in reality

you dont have a cpu issue here , if it sits at 60-70 or above constant  then you might want to start looking at cpu

thank you for the reply.

There are many drops in output queues. how do i stop them.

Port-asic drops is over subscription of the interfaces can be caused by too much traffic or by micro burst traffic that for short periods over whelms the interface , do you have qos enabled at all ? 

No we havent enabled QOS

whats connected to the switch pcs,phones, servers ?

you could enable mls qos on the switch to allow for queuing at interface level it may prevent so many drops but you might have to tweak it as well when enabled to suit your traffic depending on what the results are and depending on what you have connected to the switch , as i said some of these drops are from superscription depending on the devices connected they can be sending too much traffic for the port to handle

do you see these drops in the output section of each interface as well or just on platform outputs

heres a link that explains how to enable qos on 2960x

This switch is connected to PCs and ip phones.

There are output drops on interface aswell

How old are the counters ? if there up a long time you can expect drops on output queue you will never fully get rid of them as some are legitimate drops

for our 2960 switches at layer 2 with pc and phones we have applied mls qos trust dscp on the uplink and the edge ports , this trusts voice traffic prioritizes it and puts the other traffic into specific mls queues to alleviate drops , you will need to enable mls qos globally as well but if your traffic is being caused by micro burst traffic from certain applications on the pcs you would need to look at the app rather than the switch as micro bursts will nearly always cause drops as they spike oversubscribing the interface for a few seconds at a time resuming in drops

ok thank you will implement qos and check.
