show policy-map interface help understanding the output table

I've attached 2 examples of the output from a "show policy-map interface xxx n/n" I want to understand the table that is at the bottom of the output. I have some routers that do not show the table when I issue the command but for the ones that do, what am I looking at? everything to me is clear until I get to the table that shows 8 classes, 0-7 and rsvp information. What are the 8 classes? are these generic CS buckets? what? I have machines using more than one AF class that show only one row of class 0 in the table (also attached).

I cannot find a table explanation on the CCO, only definitions for everything preceding it.

shouldn't the numbers be sums from the classes? they're not.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Nelson,

if you mean these lines:

>> class Transmitted Random drop Tail drop Minimum Maximum Mark

pkts/bytes pkts/bytes pkts/bytes thresh thresh prob

0 891548776/488485052793 0/0 0/0 20 40 1/10

1 0/0 0/0 0/0 22 40 1/10

2 0/0 0/0 0/0 24 40 1/10

these are related to WRED weighted random detect

WRED is a congestion management tecnique that tries to prevent to have full queue that causes generalized tail drops.

Hope to help
