Hello,

We are seeing high CPU utilization on one of our switches. Any idea what might be causing this and  where to look next?


Task usage for last 6 sec
 % CPU | Description
-------+--------------------------
   8.8 | Idle
   2.3 | Sessions & I/O
   3.8 | Debug & Test
   2.3 | System Services
  72.0 | SNMP
  11.0 | IP Host/Routing

Software version is  K.15.10.0022

The logs show  relatively high count of SNMP log on/off by our PCM server, but nothing else.

Thanks!

How often are you collecting SNMP stats?    What happens if you temporarily suspend collecting them?

SNMP would be consuming too many resources depending on what you are polling for and how frequently you are polling.
