Extracting IOS image on 3560/3750 take 20min and causes high cpu load
Hi, I used the "archive download-sw" command on several Catalyst 3560 and 3750 (via ssh session) to copy new ios images to their flashes and extract them. While the extracting took nearly 20 minutes I experienced 100% cpu load on the switches, a "show proc cpu" in a second - very slow - ssh session displayed the ssh process with 99,x%. Does anybody know if this is normal behaviour and if extracting an image this way is affecting the switching/routing performance of the switches? Many thanks in advance, ...
