Hulc LED Process uses 15-30% CPU on Catalyst 3560X/3750X platforms.

This is an expected behavior and there is no workaround.

The “Hulc LED” process does following tasks:

– Check Link status on every port
– If the switch supports POE, it checks to see if there is a Power Device (PD)
– Check the status of the transceiver
– Update Fan status
– Set Main LED and ports LEDs
– Update both Power Supplies and RPS
– Check on system temperature status
