Policy Map Configuration Mode Commands


To configure an AppNav or optimization policy map, use the policy-map global configuration command. To unconfigure settings, use the no form of this command.

policy-map type {appnav | waas} policymap-name [rename new-name]

no policy-map type {appnav | waas} policymap-name

Syntax Description

appnav

Configures an AppNav policy map.

waas

Configures a WAAS optimization policy map.

policymap-name

Policy map name (up to 40 alpha-numeric characters and hyphen, beginning with a letter).

rename new-name

(Optional) Renames the policy map with the specified new name.


Defaults

No default behavior or values.

Command Modes

global configuration

Device Modes

application-accelerator

appnav-controller

Usage Guidelines

Use the policy-map command to add or modify policy maps that associate policy actions with class maps. This command invokes the Policy Map configuration mode, which is indicated by a different prompt (config-pmap). To return to global configuration mode, enter the exit command.

You can delete a policy map by using the no form of this command.

The WAAS software comes with many class maps and policy rules that help your WAAS system classify and optimize some of the most common traffic on your network. Before you create a new class map or policy rule, we recommend that you review the default class map and policy rules and modify them as appropriate. It is usually easier to modify an existing class map or policy rule than to create a new one. For a list of the default applications, class maps, and policy rules, see the Cisco Wide Area Application Services Configuration Guide.


Note We strongly recommend that you use the WAAS Central Manager GUI to centrally configure policy maps for your WAAS devices. For more information, see the Cisco Wide Area Application Services Configuration Guide.


Examples

The following example shows how to configure a WAAS optimization policy map:

wae(config)# policy-map type waas myPolicy
wae(config-pmap)# description My optimization policy
wae(config-pmap)# class httpx
wae(config-pmap-c)# optimize full accelerate http application Web
 
   

The following example shows how to configure an AppNav policy map:

wae(config)# policy-map type appnav mypolicy
wae(config-pmap)# description My AppNav policy
wae(config-pmap)# class httpx
wae(config-pmap-c)# distribute service-node-group wng3
wae(config-pmap-c)# monitor-load http

(config-pmap) class

To configure the service policy for a class map, use the class policy map configuration command. To unconfigure the service policy, use the no form of this command.

class classmap-name [insert-before [existing_class]]

no class classmap-name [insert-before [existing_class]]

Syntax Description

classmap-name

Class map name (up to 40 alpha-numeric characters and hyphen, beginning with a letter).

insert-before existing_class

Inserts a new class, or moves an existing class, before the specified class. If you do not specify an existing class name, the class is moved to the last position in the policy map.


Defaults

No default behavior or values.

Command Modes

Policy map configuration

Device Modes

application-accelerator

appnav-controller

Usage Guidelines

Use the class command to add or modify a service policy (policy rule) for traffic identified by a class map. This command invokes the Policy Map Class configuration mode, which is indicated by a different prompt (config-pmap-c). For more information on Policy Class Map configuration mode commands, see the "Policy Map Class Configuration Mode Commands" section. To return to global configuration mode, enter the exit command.

You can delete a policy rule by using the no form of this command.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure a policy rule in an optimization policy map:

wae(config)# policy-map waas WAAS-GLOBAL
wae(config-pmap)# class httpx
wae(config-pmap-c)# optimize full accelerate http application Web
 
   

The following example shows how to configure an AppNav policy rule in a policy map:

wae(config)# policy-map type appnav mypolicy
wae(config-pmap)# class httpx
wae(config-pmap-c)# distribute service-node-group wng3
wae(config-pmap-c)# monitor-load http
