create qosprofile

create qosprofile [QP2| QP3 | QP4 | QP5 | QP6 | QP7]


Creates a QoS (Quality of Service) profile.

Syntax Description

QP2....QP7 Specifies the QoS profile you want to create.



Usage Guidelines

Summit family switches allow dynamic creation and deletion of QoS profiles QP2 to QP7. Creating a QoS profile dynamically does not cause loss of traffic.

QoS profiles QP1 and QP8 are part of the default configuration and cannot be deleted. You must create a QoS profile in the range of QP2 to QP7 before you can configure it or assign it to traffic groups.

Qos profile QP7 cannot be created in a SummitStack; this queue is reserved for control traffic.



The sFlow application uses QP2 to sample traffic on SummitStack and Summit family switches; any traffic grouping using QP2 can encounter unexpected results when sFlow is enabled on these specific devices.


The following command creates QoS profile QP3:
create qosprofile qp3


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.
