[c-nsp] Question on CPU utilization

We've got several remote sites that have a 3500XL switch running 12.0(5)WC17 as the core of their network. All of them are showing cpu utilization around 35-55% pretty much constantly.

- is this too high? Shouldn't it be more like <= 10% most of the time?
- how can I troubleshoot this? I've seen some steps on cisco.com, but they don't seem to indicate where the problem might be. I didn't see anything under the bug toolkit for this IOS that sounds like the problem I'm having, but should I try upgrading anyway?
