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...

 

Regards

Cyber Elite

@SebastianRM,

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?

@MP18,

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