Syntax Description

critical | high | low Sets the PoE priority for the specified ports.
port_list Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.



Usage Guidelines

The system allocates power to those ports with the highest priorities first. This command can also be used in conjunction with the configure inline-power disconnect-precedence command. If you configure the disconnect precedence as lowest priority, then newly detected PDs will be powered if that port has higher priority than the existing powered ports.

If there are multiple ports at the same priority level (either configured or by default) and one of the ports must have power withdrawn because of excessive power demands, those ports with the lower port number are powered first. The higher port numbers have power withdrawn first in the case of equal PoE port priorities.


The following command assigns a critical PoE priority on ports 4 – 6 on slot 3 on a SummitSwitch:

configure inline-power priority critical ports 3:4-3:6


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.
