vSRX High CPU load

Hi all,

 

a couple of vSRXes at work have a load average of 4.08 without actually doing anything.

"show processes extensive" shows, that "idle: cpu0" has 47% of the CPU and "license-check" consumes 12%.

 

Anyone have a clue why the "idling" is taking so much CPU? Has anyone seen this before?

S/W: 15.1X49-D100

The load average seems to be on the higher side. 

Regarding high idle CPU, thats a good sign. This basically means the percentage of time CPU is idle and higher values are more preferrable.

 

license-check should be a process trying to validate licenses installed on the device and might just be complaining about smoething. You can check log messages to know more.
