Usage Guidelines

You can use this command to specify or modify the maximum number of packets the queue can hold for a class policy configured in a policy map. The system drops packets that exceed the configured queue-size threshold.

You can use this command only for network-qos class maps that do not have "pause" configured.

Examples

This example shows how to assign a queue limit to a policy map network-qos class:

switch(config)# policy-map type network-qos my_queue 
switch(config-pmap-nq)# class type network-qos nqos_class 
switch(config-pmap-nq-c)# queue-limit 20480 bytes 
switch(config-pmap-nq-c)# 
 
   

This example shows how to remove a queue limit from a policy map queuing class:

switch(config)# policy-map type network-qos my_queue 
switch(config-pmap-nq)# class type network-qos nqos_class 
switch(config-pmap-nq-c)# no queue-limit 20480 bytes 
switch(config-pmap-nq-c)#
