M Commands


This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS quality of service (QoS) commands that begin with M.

match access-group

To identify a specified access control list (ACL) group as a match criteria for a class map, use the match access-group command. To remove an ACL match criteria from a class map, use the no form of this command.

match access-group name acl-name

no match access-group name acl-name

Syntax Description

name acl-name

Matches on the characteristics in the ACL name specified.


Command Default

None

Command Modes

Class-map type qos configuration

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines


Note The permit and deny ACL keywords do not affect the matching of packets.


Examples

This example shows how to create a qos class map that matches characteristics of the ACL my_acl:

switch(config)# class-map class_acl
switch(config-cmap-qos)# match access-group name my_acl

match qos-group

To configure a class map to use a specific QoS group value as a match criterion, use the match qos-group command. To remove the specified protocol as a match criteria, use the no form of this command.

match [not] qos-group qos-group-list

no match [not] qos-group qos-group-list

Syntax Description

qos-group-list

Specified Qos group value or list of QoS group values specified in bytes. Valid values are from 2 to 5.


Command Default

None

Command Modes

Class map type network-qos configuration
Class map type queuing configuration

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

The QoS group is an internal label and is not part of the packet payload or any packet header. The QoS group values have no mathematical significance. For example, a QoS group value of 2 is not greater than 1; the values are used only to internally differentiate QoS groups. As such, this value has local significance only.

You match on the QoS group only in egress policies because its value is undefined until you set it in an ingress policy.

To specify a list of values, use one of the following options:

Specify a range of values separated by a dash

Specify a noncontiguous list of values separated by commas

Examples

This example shows how to match on a specified QoS group value:

switch(config)# class-map type queuing my_test 
switch(config-cmap-qos)# match qos-group 6 
switch(config-cmap-qos)#
 
   

Related Commands
