Mngmt CPU Raises %51

Hi All,

My PA5060  mngmt CPU raises %51 around and after a few mins later it goes down to %10 but it's happening  oftenly

I think it's not normal and i want to solve this problem or i wanna learn what is/are the reason about this issue. Can anyone help me please? Thanks.  

Software version: 5.0.4

Check if the CPU spike is related to any scheduled jobs such as content download install ,FQDN refresh job etc.


>show jobs all

You can also monitor the realtime MP utilization statistics using :

>show system resources follow

This is same as Linux top command .

For details Ref :top - Linux Command - Unix Command

please verify the CLI command and check below mentioned parameter while CPU raise to 50 %, which can cause high MP CPU.

admin@PA-4050> show system resources follow

- 16:32:42 up 4 days, 4:54, 1 user,  load average: 0.06, 0.08, 0.02

1. Load averages are the average number of process ready to run during last 1, 5 and 15 minutes.

2. Load averages > 1 indicates that getting more requests than the system is able to handle.

3.  Important fields

%id  Percent idle. For instance, above shows the CPU 85.3% idle.

%wa  Percent of time CPU has been waiting for I/O to complete.   Too high may be indicative of heavy swap usage particularly on 500/2000/4000 platforms.

Includes total available memory, used memory, free memory,  and memory used for buffers.

The above command also gives you an idea, which daemons are consuming higher MP CPU and MP CPU to raise 51%.

Please let me know, If you need further assistance.

I had the same issue, and it's officially identified as a bug, bug ID 56014.

Estimated mitigation is in 5.0.8 - but don't hold your breath.
