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 ????

ROUTER(config)#no cdp ?
  advertise-v2      CDP sends version-2 advertisements
  holdtime          Specify the holdtime (in sec) to be sent in packets
  log               Log messages generated by CDP
  run               Enable CDP
  source-interface  Insert the interface's IP in all CDP packets
  timer             Specify rate (in sec) at which CDP packets are sent

which one I make disable ?

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

no cdp run

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