Cisco Bug: CSCtc66923 - High CPU usage when over-provisioning CFM
Jan 16, 2017
- Cisco 12000 Series Routers
Known Affected Releases
Description: Over-provisioning CFM MEPs on a line card may result in very high CPU usage by the cfmd process. Symptoms: The cfmd process uses a large amount of CPU, and the line card may become unresponsive, for example to configuration or show commands. Conditions: The problem can occur when the combined packet rate for the CFM MEPs on the line card exceeds 2000 packets per second. The combined packet rate is a function of both the number of MEPs configured on interfaces on the line card, and the configured CCM interval for those MEPs.
