Good morning!.


I have a question about processes.


Somebody know what is process "fpp_dp"? because I see that this process is consuming too much CPU


What about this process?
fpp_dp1,fpp_dp2, etc...

FPP stands for First Packet Processor, and the multiple dp1, dp2 listings that you are seeing is because each dataplane gets a dedicated FPP process. 

so is FPP just like a CPU in Data plane or it is different then DP CPU?



The First Packet Processor is part of the Switch Management Card (SMC). 

Many Thanks for answering the question!
