hi Labanowski

you network loop many different connection between switch or breakdown nic

therefore consists of the loop

must have enable spanning-tree on each switch
with "(config)#spanning-tree" command

I have exactly the same on two 2910 switches with both firmware 14.38 and 14.49. The CPU usage of the Debug & Test process is high for about 2 or 3 hours and then goes low again for a couple of days.

We are confident that we dont have any networks loops and have spanning-tree and loop-protection enabled on our network.

Already created an support case for this, but no answer or solutions yet.
Does anyone have access to newer release notes and know if there is a fix for this in a newer not generally available firmware?

Hello. We too have this same issue on firmware 14.49. I contacted HP support and by the time they got to my case, the problem disappeared. It usually goes away after 2-3 hours. I dont even have debugging turned on.

I think its a bug, and hopefully they will find it and fix it.
