QoS question for policy-map

I was trying to understand how the configuration below is possible, since the command "priority" always ask for a value next to it - either a percentage or a kilobps. In this case the "priority" command has nothing next to it and just below it we do have a policy command. IOS level is 12.2.4

How is that possible?

Thanks!

!

class-map match-any VOICE_TRAFFIC

match ip dscp ef

!

policy-map TEST_QOS

class VOICE_TRAFFIC

priority

police cir 311040000 bc 9720000 be 9720000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop violate-action drop

Re: QoS question for policy-map

Hi,

It's hardware dependent. Platform like the 12000 doesn't support it because the LC can't support this implementation. Same thing for 7300 and NSE-100:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/7300/maintain_and_operate_guides/7304_maintain_and_operate_guides/7304pxf.html#wp1034321

"However, starting in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(14)SZ, the kpbs value for the priority command is no longer configurable on the NSE-100."

Both configuration are different:

policy-map TEST_QOS

class VOICE_TRAFFIC

priority

police cir 311040000 bc 9720000 be 9720000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop violate-action drop

!

This one will police the priority class all the time regardless if there is congestion or not.

policy-map TEST_QOS

class VOICE_TRAFFIC

priority 311040000

!

This one will police the priority class ONLY during congestion period. It's easier to implement such feature on software platform like ISR for example

Re: QoS question for policy-map

Thank you Laurent.

I think that is the point. It is HW related. I am using a 7609 (SUP720-3BXL) with the HW interface below for POS:

"1 SIP-400 controller (1 POS) & 1 Packet over SONET network interface"

here is the note from document "Cisco 7600 series Router SIP, SSC, and SPA Software Configuration Guide"

-----------------------------------

Note: The POS SPAs do not support bandwidth-limited priority queueing, but support only strict priority policy maps, that is, the priority command without any parameters.

-------------------------------------

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Gilson
