While analyzing issues we are facing i came across very high CPU utilization on one of our Blackdiamond 8810 switches. I don't have to output from top
handy but bcmRX was using between 40-60% of the CPU. We tried disabling all VLANS and it still used 30-40% of the CPU and it continued to use 30-40% of CPU post reboot.
I've tried google and it came up with this link
which says it could be due to very large number of packets in the network which are using up the CPU, doesn't make since because the part of the network that is connected to this switch is not functioning at the moment (which is issue I set out to fix initially).
I am new to this and am learning each day, any pointers on what could be causing this and a suitable resolution would be of great help.
Thanks in advance.
