create ports group

create ports group port_group


This command creates a generic port-group name that can be associated with a list of ports. The port_group option could be implemented in configure or show commands that currently accept a port_list. The QoS commands are expanded to accept the port_group option. QoS commands that use port groups are updated automatically if the ports group is removed or if ports are added or removed from the group.
