Priority vs. Bandwidth Commands

Questions:

1. If I set aside 30% of T1 bandwidth using Priority command and it actually uses 20% of it, does the remaining 10% get distributed into the rest of the Classes in QoS? or does Bandwith command do so?

I am unclear if either one of them will do it.

Greatly appreciated any feedback or TID to reference it.

Thanks!

Re: Priority vs. Bandwidth Commands

Any unused bandwidth is shared among other classes. That applies to both LLQ and CBWFQ. In your scenario, the 10% bandwidth will be available for other classes defined in the policy map.

Re: Priority vs. Bandwidth Commands

Thanks, Sundar! I've also found the info from Cisco QoS FAQs..

" Although the bandwidth guarantees provided by issuing the bandwidth and priority commands have been described with words like "reserved" and "bandwidth to be set aside", neither command implements a true reservation. Meaning, if a traffic class is not using its configured bandwidth, any unused bandwidth is shared among the other classes. "
