Look at the logs and look for processes that have values that you don't really use and disable them.

CDP is handy when you are setting up your network but can be disabled afterwards when everything has converged = No CDP

Are you running redundancy - I saw HSRP activities. If you are not, then turn that one off too = No standby

I also saw instances of EIGRP and OSPF. Are you running both?, do you need both. Combining routing protocols have benefits but can bug your router down too = no router ????

no cdp run

If you are not using any monitoring tool, then you are safe to disable snmp.
