QoS Configuration Guidelines for SummitStack and Summit Family Switches

The considerations below apply to QoS on SummitStack and Summit family switches:
  • The following QoS features share resources:
    • ACLs
    • dot1p
    • VLAN-based QoS
    • Port-based QoS
  • You might receive an error message when configuring a QoS feature in the above list; it is possible that the shared resource is depleted. In this case, unconfigure one of the other QoS features and reconfigure the one you are working on.

  • On a SummitStack, you cannot create QoS profile QP7. This QoS profile is reserved for system control traffic.

  • These switches allow dynamic creation and deletion of QoS queues, with QP1 and QP8 always available.

  • ACL egress rate-limit meters are supported only on all platforms.
