The following is a description of the router, its a 1941

Cisco IOS Software, C1900 Software (C1900-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.1(4)M4,



Cisco CISCO1941/K9 (revision 1.0) with 487424K/36864K bytes of memory.
Processor board ID FCZ164960LU
1 DSL controller
1 Ethernet interface
2 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
1 ATM interface
3 terminal lines
1 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module
2 Cellular interfaces
DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity disabled.
255K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
250880K bytes of ATA System CompactFlash 0 (Read/Write)


I was wondering if someone could help identify the problem and suggest a few remedies.

Kind regards

Carlton

It would help if you could provide a little more info.
What is the router used for? T1 MPLS? Metro-E? If so, what is the speed?
Are there any ACL's that it processes?
Does is also manage VPN?

How many the throughput of the interfaces?
please prove us the config...

As I tested at my home, if I configuring zone based firewall the performance degrading, if there is more than 20M the cpu goes to 100%
