cpu (resource-manager)


Hierarchy Level


Configure resource manager cpu options to control cpu load. Resource manager takes protective action when the traffic load reaches the threshold.


  • disable-management-Disables the cpu management. By default, cpu management is on.

  • match threshold-Configure the threshold limit to let resource-manager take actions. The range is 1 to 100 percent.

  • drop-cps-This is default action when the CPU usage crosses the default or configured threshold. This configuration drops the packets which do not have an existing associated session.

  • max-session-setup-rate-This throttles new session creation to the specified rate when the cpu threshold is exceeded.

  • drop-flows-When you mark a session as a drop-flow, it bypasses the first path for each new packet, which matches the original drop session for next 4 seconds only. This configuration drops the packets that match the drop-flows.

  • log-This configuration logs messages when the resource threshold is exceeded and falls back under the threshold.

  • alarm-This configuration sends an SNMP Trap when the CPU load exceeds the threshold.
