Hello,

Have a Cisco 3560 running "flash:/c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-55.SE1.bin".  Been
running at 20% CPU since we started it:

[image: plf-access - CPU Usage]

The switch is completely layer-2... basic configuration.  CPU utilization is
soley based on a single process:

plf-access#sh proc cpu sorted
CPU utilization for five seconds: 27%/0%; one minute: 25%; five minutes: 24%
 PID Runtime(ms)   Invoked      uSecs   5Sec   1Min   5Min TTY Process

Anybody have a clue what this process is?

Thanks for the time.
