Quality of Service
8 priority queues per port, adjustable WRR and Strict Priority scheduling; Layer 2/3/4-based prioritization; advanced mode using port-based and flow-based policies, including metering/rate limiting, marking and bandwidth guarantees
Quality of Service
Wire-rate performance enables highly granular QoS functions (for example, granular rate limiting). Asynchronous data flows upstream and downstream from the end station or on an uplink are easily managed using ingress policing and egress shaping. IEE 802.1p CoS and DSCP field classification are provided, using marking and reclassification on a per-packet basis by source and destination IP address, source and destination MAC address, or Layer 4 TCP or UDP port number. Rate limiting is provided based on source and destination IP address, source and destination MAC address, Layer 4 TCP or UDP information, or any combination of these fields, using QoS ACLs (IP ACLs or MAC ACLs), class maps, and policy maps. Up to 64 aggregate or individual policers per port are allowed. Cisco control plane and data plane QoS ACLs on all ports help ensure proper marking on a per-packet basis. 4 egress queues per port enable differentiated management of up to 4 traffic flows. SRR scheduling helps ensure differential prioritization of packet flows by intelligently servicing the egress queues. Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) provides congestion avoidance at the ingress and egress queues before a disruption occurs. Strict priority queuing guarantees that the highest-priority packets are serviced ahead of all other traffic. The Cisco Committed Information Rate (CIR) function guarantees bandwidth in increments as low as 8 Kbps.
