Usage Guidelines

This command only runs if policy is disabled.

This command enables you to allocate only the slice resources necessary and allow the rest to be used outside of policy. In a stack with slots having differing VCAP slice depths, each slot has the number of rules available as follows: numSlices * (VCAP slice depth)).


The following example configures policy to use 3 slices with tci-overwrite enabled:

# configure policy slices tci-overwrite 3


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.4.
