In CoreXL a single core shouldn’t handle both interface interrupts and fw worker for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Best practices for CoreXL dictate that a single core should not be assigned to an interface AND an FW worker. Indeni will alert if this is the case.

Remediation Steps

Ensure that each CPU (such as CPU 0, CPU 1) only appears in lines which start with an interface name OR only appears in lines which start with "fw_".

How does this work?

By listing which cores are assigned to what task, a core that share both fw_worker and SND task can be identified.

Why is this important?

By listing which cores are assigned to what task, a core that share both fw_worker and SND task can be identified.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
