CPU behavior on idle network

Hello everyone,


I'm new to EdgeRouter Lite v1.9.7+hotfix.1 and was wondering what cpu load is normal with an nearly idle network. (just me writing this and traffic analysis disabled)

ERL3 is wired to 1 Netgear switch and 2 AP AC LR.

CPU load regulary:  1% rising to 25%  but less regulary climbing to 40%.



Thanks for helping out.

Re: CPU behavior on idle network

Use cli TOP command to see offending process.


Also try unplugging WAN, and see if load drops.
