What are silver and gold cards?

I heard someone say something about changing out silver and gold cards. Can someone give me and idea of what this is or provide me with a resource. Can't seem to find anything online.


Re: What are silver and gold cards?

In the following example, precedence 6-7 traffic is given strict priority over all other traffic (which may cause starvation). To give precedence 4-5 traffic 50 percent of the remaining bandwidth and precedence 0-3 traffic the remaining 50 percent, follow the steps below.

First, configure three class-maps, as follows:

Router(config)# class-map match-any MDRR-CLASS-GOLD

Router(config-cmap)# match ip precedence 6 7

Router(config-cmap)# match mpls experimental 6 7

Router(config)# class-map match-any MDRR-CLASS-SILVER

Router(config-cmap)# match ip precedence 4 5

Router(config-cmap)# match mpls experimental 4 5

Router(config)# class-map match-any MDRR-CLASS-BRONZE

Router(config-cmap)# match ip precedence 0 1 2 3

Router(config-cmap)# match mpls experimental 0 1 2 3

You can also configure this example using two class-maps and then use the class-default to include all other traffic. It is also possible to configure more than 4 precedences in a single class; however, it requires the use of additional match commands.

Next, attach all three classes to a policy map. If none of the classes is a priority class, the maximum number of classes configurable, including the class-default class, is seven. When class-default is not specified, at least 1 percent must be allocated to this class.
