What is the meaning of Ports CPU?

Please help me to understand the query.

Cisco devices typically have a management interface called the Control Plane (CP), which is responsible for handling control traffic and managing the device’s functions. Each port on a Cisco device is associated with a specific CPU, which is responsible for processing the traffic passing through that port. When you see CPU utilization associated with a specific port, it means that the CPU is actively processing traffic for that particular port.

@atulsharma Thank you sir for the details. I’ll check the video to understand more.
