hi every body!

1)i just want to know when a layer 2 switch receives a frame on port, how does it determine in which ingress queue the frame be placed?

is it decided by qos in frame?

thanks a lot!

Not all platforms support input scheduling but if your switch does, your understanding is correct. It depends on

1)QoS markings on the incoming packet

2)The queue selected depends on cos/dscp to ingress Q map

Here is some documentation(I picked 3750 for example)
