I am using cisco ES 20 card in 7606 router,when im trying to apply service-policy output command in es 20 port but its giving error

Police and strict priority must be configured together for egress QOS.
burst (bc) cannot be configured for this interface

This problem only coming when im defing brust rate.

also im able to apply this command in other ports of the router.

My question does es 20 card supports serivce-policy output cmd when burst is given in police

Hello Naidu,

egress policing is supported only in the context of a priority queue defined in CBWFQ + LLQ


Egress Policing

The ES20 line card supports egress port policing only when paired with the priority command.


the last provides an example. It is just a way to police traffic before using the LLQ queue in order to avoid starvation of other queues.

So your policy-map that would like to only perform egress policing with no queues configured is not accepted.

To be noted that you may consider to use shaping instead that is supported

Hope to help
