3750 - mls qos queue-set output threshold

Unanswered Question
Apr 11th, 2008

In the IOS command, http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750/software/release/12.2_44_se/command/reference/cli1.html#wp2144505. The drop-threshold1 and 2 is in the range from 1 3200%. Can somebody elaborate on the 3200%. How do they determine that number and what that number means to my threshold? Thanks

I have this problem too.

The drop threshold should be lower than the shutdown threshold (if configured) and should be based on the maximum

amount of PDUs you expect to receive on a port and on the CPU utilization during peaks hours. These values usually determine what is a normal peak condition and therefore what could be an abnormal peak condition. Then you can set the threshold between the two to avoid excessive spikes of PDUs on a port

Is the shutdown threshold part of the egress queue-set? In the queue-set command, I only see threshold1 and 2, reserved, and maximum. Is the shutdown threshold the maximum threshold? Thx
