SG500, Questions about QoS Settings

Hi all,
have here a SG500 with latest Firmware.

I would like to change "CoS/802.1p to Queue Map" default settings i want to use queque 8, but i get this warning.

Queue 8 is reserved for stack-control traffic. Using this queue for user traffic might disrupt stack stability. Do you want to continue?

Interestingly, queque 8 is specified in CLI_500 tutorial as a default value:

  1. Default Configuration
    The default CoS value mapping to 8 queues is as follows:

    • CoS value 0 is mapped to queue 1.

    • CoS value 1 is mapped to queue 2.

    • CoS value 2 is mapped to queue 3.

    • CoS value 3 is mapped to queue 6.

    • CoS value 4 is mapped to queue 5.

    • CoS value 5 is mapped to queue 8.

    • CoS value 6 is mapped to queue 8

    • CoS value 7 is mapped to queue 7.

The same behavior with "DSCP to Queue Map"

Therefore the question, can i use the "queque 8" or is this critical ?



SG500, Questions about QoS Settings

Hi Stefan, it is not critical if you're not using the stack function.

If you remove the queue 8 or occupy it some other way in a stack environment it may have adverse effects for how the stack interops between units or how data relays between the units.

SG500, Questions about QoS Settings

Hi Tom, thanks for fast answer.

hmm, i have 4 SG500 units with stack funktion then it is better do not use queque 8.

But why different default values (SG500 <-> Tutoeial) described in the cli_500 tutorial (CoS and DSCP) ?

Understanding question

Why is DSCP values 16 (why not queque 3 or 4), 24,40 the in the high queque 7, the same with DSCP values 48-63 ?
