Control plane policy map configuration

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

You must create the control plane class maps before you reference them in this command.

This command does not require a license.

Examples

This example shows how to configure a class map for a control plane policy map:

police (policy map)

Configures policing for a class map in a control plane policy map.

policy-map type control-plane

Specifies a control plane policy map and enters policy map configuration mode.

show policy-map type control-plane

Displays configuration information for control plane policy maps.


class (policy map type qos)

To add a reference to an existing qos class map in a policy map and enter the class mode, use the class command. To remove a class from the policy map, use the no form of this command.

class [type qos] class-map-name

no class class-map-name

Syntax Description

type qos

(Optional) Specifies the component type, which is qos for this class. By default, the type is qos.

class-map-name

Reference to a class map. The class map name can be a maximum of 40 characters. The name is case sensitive and can only contain alphabetic characters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores.


Command Default

None

Command Modes

Policy map type qos configuration

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Policy actions in the first class that matches the traffic type are performed.

By default, the class-default class of type qos is created under every policy map of type qos in the system and it is mapped to the QoS group 0. You cannot change this mapping.

You cannot remove the class-default of type qos. If you attempt to delete the class-default class, the switch returns an error message.

Examples

This example shows how to add a reference to a qos class map at the end of a policy map:

switch(config)# policy-map my_policy1
switch(config-pmap-qos)# class traffic_class2
switch(config-pmap-c-qos)# 
 
   

This example shows how to remove a class map reference in a policy map:

switch(config)# policy-map my_policy1
switch(config-pmap-qos)# no class traffic_class1
switch(config-pmap-qos)#
