Cisco Switching/Routing :: High CPU Usage - 3750X Stack

Jun 19, 2012

We recently configured a stack of four 48 port 3750-x switches . We are noticing high CPU usage. "Hulc LED process" seems pretty high. This has coincided with VMware servers getting slow and non-responsive at times, perhaps a coincidence, not sure. Below I provided some outputs about how to diagnose it.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: High CPU Usage On 3750X - IOS Version 15.0(2)SE

Feb 26, 2013

I have a 2 Cisco 3750X stacked working as CORE switches but not in production yet showing a high CPU utilization and I would like to see with you whether you think this is normal or a IOS upgrade/downgrade should be performed.
I have very low traffic coming through as this is not yet in production:

Cisco Switching/Routing :: High CPU Usage In 3750X-24T-L Switch

Apr 9, 2013

The process "HL3U bkgrd proce" is causing high CPU usage issues in a switch 3750X-24T-L. The IOS is 15.0.2-SE2.
show platform ip unicast failed route and adjacencies displays a lot of entries, I've seen up to 1200.
After restart HL3U bkgrd proce takes around 10 - 20 % CPU, some hours later 99%.
A coupe of times we got logs like this:
%SYS-3-CPUHOG: Task is running for (2136)msecs, more than (2000)msecs (172/73),process = HL3U bkgrd process.

We have two c6509 budled in VSS. I have noticed randomly high usage of CPU, sometimes up to 99% in peaks. I have found that it can be generated by SNMP engine. So I unconfigure all SNMP things. But situation is the same. I would like to know if this state is OK or not. CPU shows are enclosed in file.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: QoS On 3750X Stack

May 7, 2013

I'm trying to review a QoS setup, and I'd like to make sure I fully understand the current setup before I change anything. I'm seeing output drops on two different queue-thresholds, but not sure how packets are making it to one of the queues.
Switch Version
CORE#show ver
Cisco IOS Software, C3750E Software (C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.0(2)SE, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
System image file is "flash:/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE.bin"
cisco WS-C3750X-24 (PowerPC405) processor (revision A0) with 262144K bytes of memory.
Switch Ports Model              SW Version(code)

I can find queue4-threshold3 in the mappings, but how are packets getting mapped to queue2-threshold1? The priority queue is disabled for this interface, so I'm not sure how this queue is dropping packets, according to the maps nothing is mapped to 02-01.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: CPU Spikes On 3750X Stack

Mar 7, 2013

This 3750X stack (3 members) has some 100% cpu spikes. Is this bad enough to start tracking down the cause(s) or is this somewhat typical and not a reason for concern? I just took this reading. How can you detemine when the 100% and 80% spikes occurred?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Multicast In A 3750x Stack

Jan 31, 2012

I recently created a stack using (2) 3750x switches. I have three vlans on the stack (1,105,241) Vlan 105 is configured on 6509 core switches with multicasting and are connected to the stack via gigabit fiber. It is working well with clients on the Master or SW1, however clients on SW2 do not participate in multicasting Any client pc that is connected to SW2 vlan 105 does not show up in the "sh ip igmp snooping group" command. I can statically assign a client on SW2 to the mcast groups but but they fail to register on their own. I can take the cable connection from SW2 and plug it into an SW1 Vlan 105 port and it immediately becomes a member of the groups. I can then connect it back to the SW2 port and it disappears from the group membership. IGMP and PIM are configured with the defaults.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Rolling Stack Upgrade (RSU) With 3750X (IOS 15.0.1-SE3)?

Jun 17, 2012

Switch 2 has an interface configured in RSU Standby.Switch 3 has an interface configured in RSU active. The upgrading sequence is : Switch 2, Switch 1, Switch3.The aim of the test is to prove that there is no loss of IP connectivity throught the RSU process.During the RSU process, there are ping between all the computers.
IOS starting version : 15.0-1.SE3
IOS upgrading version (with OVERWRITE) : 15.0-1.SE3 (same version)
1rst step : Switch 2 reboot and come back master but isolated from original stack (switch 1 and 3)
2nd step : Switch 1 reboot, and come back with switch 2 into the upgrading stack.

Issue : at this step :

-  Switch 1 put its interface (IP up :

-  Switch 3 has not reboot and still has its interface (IP up

=> we have some OSPF adjencies and mac flapping issues : switch 1 and 3 are trying to mount there OSPF adjencies on the same IP. We loss our IP connectivity since step 3 is not over.
3rd step : Switch 3 reboot and come back up in the upgrading stack. The IP connectivity is back, and the RSU process is done.Is that a normal behaviour ?How can we avoid to loose IP connectivity during RSU process ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X Stack Upgrade Failure

Jan 24, 2013

IOS upgrade tried on the stack of 2XWS-C3750X-24T-S , Upgrade was tried to support WCCP on the platform. Current version is Cisco IOS Software, C3750E Software (C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 12.2(58)SE1, Not able  find any IP Plus ios in the site ? Only available are IP base and Universal K9 , Tried upgrading to c3750e-universalk9-tar.122-58.SE2.tar by using stack upgrade method as per document [URL]
Upgrade fails with error :
%Error opening flash:update/info (No such file or directory)
ERROR: Image is not a valid IOS image archive.
Why current ios is not supporting WCCP , I hope it is there in the featureset. ( tried "sdm prefer routing" but no success) Does c3750e-universalk9-tar.122-58.SE2.tar will give me wccp support ? What is the issue with my upgrade and how do I do a successfull upgrade ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X - Single Switch Stack?

Mar 8, 2012

I have a 3750X 24 port switch (with NM-1G network module) running IOS 15.0(1). Is there any benefit or reason to plug in the included Stack Wise cable and loop it back to itself in a single switch installation?
I don't see any recommendation in the documentation. The data sheet indicates a single switch is a non-blocking device so I'd think there's no bandwidth advantage like there is when connecting an actual multi-switch stack and needing to close the loop for the full 32 Gbps stack bandwidth.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Replacing 3750X Stack Member?

Feb 7, 2012

I have two 3750X in a stack. Each 3750X has one 10Gb uplink to primary core1 and one 1Gb uplink to backup core2 configured in 2 etherchannel groups. The member switch has bad ports, so I need to replace it. I have spare 3750X unit. Is it possible to connect the spare unit to the stack and then move the RJ-45 cables from the member with bad ports to the new member? That way I can minimize servers downtime to just a few seconds..If that would work, then the last step would be to move the 10Gb networking module from old member to the new one, as well as the secondary PSU. Is it doable? Also according to the documentation, all I need to add new member is matching IOS version, correct?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X 24SE-12.2 (58) SE2 CPU Utilization High

Oct 9, 2012

We have just purchased Cisco 3750X 24 S switches (QTY 2), last week we put them in prodcution in simple Layer 2 mode. No Core, just act as Access switch in order to only check the performace and availibility of switches.
But strange thing I have noticed the highest cpu utilization, cpu sits on 13 to 14% and from historical logs it hit above 60%. I am confused what is happening. Remember to terminate copper connection we have inserted Copper SFP Modules on both switches.
Both switches connected on Layer 2 mode via trunk, in LAN environment we have here 7 3Com 2824 Management switches which are terminated on Copper SFP modules at Cisco 3750X 24 S. All 3Comm Switches uplink are terminated on Cisco 3750 Switch 1, another switch is idle. Whole setup is running on VLAN1 .
Also refer no port in TCP and UDP packets in show ip traffic. any abnormal condition you predict..basically, In near days we plan to make these switches as Core layer and run intervlan routing, HSRP/VRRP and OSPF. But in this cpu usage how we can go ahead until this resolved..

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750x Replacing 2nd Stack Wise Cable?

Nov 20, 2011

I have two 3750G switches stacked together however it's not in a full ring configuration:

Stack Ring Speed        : 16G
Stack Ring Configuration: Half
Stack Ring Protocol     : StackWise
And as shown below it's obvious which cable is not working:
show switch neighbors
Switch #    Port 1       Port 2
--------    ------       ------
1         2            None
2        None           1
It's not flapping - it's like the cable isn't there at all. I'm going to try reseating the cable in there and perhaps an all out replacement if necessary. My question - is there any threat of a reboot of the switch stack or of partitioning of the switch stack by trying to get the 2nd cable working?
