Monitoring CPU Utilization

You can monitor the CPU utilization and history for all of the processes running on the switch.

By viewing this history on a regular basis, you can see trends emerging and identify processes with peak utilization. Monitoring the workload of the CPU allows you to troubleshoot and identify suspect processes before they become a problem. By default, the switch monitors CPU utilization every five seconds. In addition, when CPU utilization of a process exceeds 90% of the regular operating basis, the switch logs an error message specifying the process name and the current CPU utilization for the process.
