create qosprofile

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


Creates a QoS profile.

Syntax Description

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



Usage Guidelines

ExtremeSwitching series 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 ExtremeSwitching series 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.
