Hello Experts,

I use Cisco IOU provided by flyxy.cn at http://91sec.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/my-cisco-iou-racks-from-flyxj-iouv3.html

The Cisco L2 IOU 12 causes a lot of CPU usage causes high CPU usage. The high CPU usage is System not Users: more debugging shows that L2 IOU causes a lot of loopback traffic. It was suggested to use the following commands:

class-map match-all ARP
  match protocol arp

policy-map ARP-limit
  class ARP
   police rate 2 pps burst 20 packets peak-rate 7 pps
     conform-action transmit
     exceed-action drop
     violate-action drop

However, I don't see where to apply to policy. Can someone shed some light

Cheers

Most likely you should apply it on loopback interface (since it is loopback traffic)  :)

interface loopback0
service-policy output ARP-limit

Most likely you need to restrict traffic from loopback in out direction,.

Hello

This is still going to use processing to try to limited the traffic

Try to determine why this is going on.  ARP could be MAC address flooding on your IOU Lab.

If that does not show any thing try GNS3 or Cisoc VIRL

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hello Steven

Does Cisco VIRL do switching?

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Yes, but you need to pay for it. Check prices on Virl page.
