Cisco 3845 100% CPU usage

Hello,

I have Cisco 3845 on my network. We are VOIP company. We have calls passing out network all day long. Currently we have over 500 calls. We used to be able to pass over 1500 calls with no problem. I have upgraded my router to 3845 in order to make more calls. Today we dropped down to 500 calls. During the day I have noticed 100% CPU. Someone please tell me how to lower my CPU usage? What information is needed from me. Please see bellow my CPU usage history. Any help will be appreciated.

PS I just purchased ASA 5520 to remove all the firewall rules away. Anything else I can do right now?

hi!
i suppose that particular network traffic is affecting your router.
if you are saying your router can handle 1500 calls it means, that if only 500 possible, some kind of malisious network activity hits your cisco.
try to check bandwidth usage on different interfaces, try to sniff traffic(with wireshark) on them in order to understand what kind of traffic is causing high cpu load of your device

of it is ip input, then you have to analyze traffic coming to your device.

Something is wrong.
I added the % totals in exel  and got this
16.88%      12.48%      11.48%

16% but the cpu is at 89%

1. Please check on your side if you see anything that is not in the list ?
2. Are you running any debug ?   (Debug can slow a router down a lot)
#sh debug

dizel247Author Commented:
thanks for noticing that. I also don't understand where is other usage coming from.

L#sh debug    


shows nothing empty.

do you guys know how come when running show process cpu doesn't add up to 100% but CPU utilization for five seconds: 91%?

diepesCommented:
hi dizel247,

Is there any thing in your environment that can contribute to high CPU usage ?

Heavy monitoring of router ?     Flow exports ?      Nat on router ?    Routing heavy 1Gigabit traffic through the router ?

Explain a bit what the Calls 500->1500 has to do  with the router ?      Does the router terminate the calls ?
Could it be voice trans coding ?

dizel247Author Commented:
I have removed this router from the environment and installed ASA. The problem was due to cisco 3845 cant handle lots of simultaneous packets and have many firewall rules. By putting ASA in my environment I now have no problems and actually pushing more traffic over my network.
