Re: Brocade ICX stack showing 100 % appl tasks

I see this too; I asked a TSE once and he said it was a "normal background process" but I couldn't get any further detail about what the process is for. My guess based on watching the counters is that it's something like the "System Idle Process" in Windows and that it doesn't indicate a load on the CPU... that's only a guess though.
