Hi everyone,

I wonder which percentage is good level of CPU and Memory util of network equipment ?
In my case, I try to keep under 30% cpu util and 70% memory util. My most equipment are Cisco product. 
I have no technical reference about that, it is just a rule of mine or my predecessor.
Could you tell me how other operators are doing ? what is your operation baseline ? or is there any guideline about process utilization ?

Best regards,
 Chi-Young Joung
