Of course.  I have 2 3660s and one 7206 (G1) that spike at 100% every 
hour on the hour.  It's not RANCID's fault.  It happens anytime I do a 
sh run.  The 7206 has about 13k lines in its config.  One 3660 has just 
under 6k lines.  The other 3660 has over 17k config lines.  That 3660's 
load stays at 100% for well over a minute.  A high load is expected 
given the sheer size of the config.  SSH has a higher load than telnet 
of course but that's no reason to not use SSH.
