Hi Everyone,

Need to confirm if this device has normal Cpu Utilization

Here is graph

    7777777779777777777977877777777779777777777777777797777779777777777777

100          *                       *                       *

90          *         *             *                *      *

80 * **   *** *  *   ********** **  *  *    *  **** **** ** ** **   ***

70 **********************************************************************

60 **********************************************************************

50 **********************************************************************

40 ######################################################################

30 ######################################################################

20 ######################################################################

10 ######################################################################

   0....5....1....1....2....2....3....3....4....4....5....5....6....6....7.

             0    5    0    5    0    5    0    5    0    5    0    5    0

                   CPU% per hour (last 72 hours)

                  * = maximum CPU%   # = average CPU%

As graph shows average is still around 40 but it frequently spikes to 80% utilization.?

Thanks

Mahesh,

There are a few variables missing to help assist.

You provided CPU history.

Something else to look at is sh proc cpu sorted

This will help show what processes are running and using what percentage.

You can also do a sho proc cpu sorted | e 0.0

This will exclude any of the outputs that have 0.0%

What are you trying to figure out?  Is there slowness on the network and you are thinking it is related to CPU?  Does this graph always look like this, it is hard to know of this is normal since there is no baseline to compare it to.  Do you use any mrtg or netflow data to do any graphs?

So in this case there are two points of interest causing your cpu to be at the 40% mark, Spanning-Tree and Cat4k Mgmt HiPri.

Here is a troubleshooting guide to follow that will help you isolate and some tips to resolve these issues.  There is a lot of different things to view and try to post in the forum.  If you look at this guide it will show you specifically some troubleshooting steps.
