A4 - High CPU utilization "SysIdleTask" process

  • 1.  A4 - High CPU utilization "SysIdleTask" process

    Posted 04-20-2017 18:33
    Hi

    I installed a few A4 switches recently and realized that they are all showing high cpu utilization in the "SysIdleTask" process.

    Does anyone know what this can be?

    Is it a normal behavior?

    Yes, this is normal. The utilization of the CPU seems to be fine as well. Nothing to worry.

    System IdleTask is the % of CPU that is not being consumed by a process. So, seeing a low number like 10% would be bad.

    SysIdleTask is a remaining CPU load after all other tasks
    e.g. you have summary load 8% then this "task" will have (but not use!) 92%

    That is the Idle task. Your switch is not very busy.

    Hello

    What, is the process name bcmRX??

    Because the CPU in C5K is 90 %

    Regards!!

    SysIdleTask means unused resources that are available to your system.

    Como puedo observar todo el ThroughPut de mi switch C5K125 48P2 y el B5K125 48p2?

    Como saber cuanto esta consumiendo y cuanto es lo que trae el equipo, gracias.
