Hi,QOS implementation has


QOS implementation has radically changed since the advent of
sup-7 & later

You no longer set mls qos as qos is on the engine by default.

Please see the following links

"Ingress QoS: Default Actions

First and foremost, QoS does not need to be enabled on the Supervisor Engine, it is on by default in compliance with the MQC construct.

When a packet arrives at an interface, there are two options to take into consideration: is there a policy attached or not? If the packet arrives with or without a marking and there is not a policy attached to the interface, packets will flow through the switch untouched. There are no questions as to where the packet came from or if it has a valid marking. If the packet arrives with or without a marking, and a policy is attached to the interface, the packet will only then be subject to the policy classification."

And the config guide


Hope this helps
