If a managed BIG-IP device is configured to collect statistics, its CPU usage might increase while BIG-IP transfers statistics files from the BIG-IQ Data Collection Device.


Excess CPU usage can cause issues with traffic management on BIG-IP


Statistics collection enabled on BIG-IQ/BIG-IP


If this happens, either stop collecting statistics on a given BIG-IP, or reduce the overall load by changing the polling frequency (Devices -> BIG-IP DEVICES -> <Device> -> Statistics Collection -> Frequency)
