I activated polling in 8 interfaces em0... em7 (ifconfig em* polling) to
carry through performance tests, when activating, it had a significant
reduction of CPU usage, load average measured of "0,50, 0,69, 0,52" for
"0,43, 0,39, 0,21" and the CPU usage (SNMP Graphic) measured of 35% for
5%. Passed some hours I disactivated polling (ifconfig em* - polling)
and CPU usage continues low.
Somebody could explain this to me?
