QoS Control List

This page shows the QoS (Quality of Service) Control List(QCL), which is made up of the QCEs. Each row describes a QCE that is defined. The maximum number of QCEs is 256 on each switch. Click on the lowest plus sign to add a new QCE to the list.

Object Description
QCE Indicates the QCE id.
Port Indicates the list of ports configured with the QCE.
DMAC Indicates the destination MAC address. Possible values are:
  • Any: Match any DMAC.
  • Unicast: Match unicast DMAC.
  • Multicast: Match multicast DMAC.
  • Broadcast: Match broadcast DMAC.
  • <MAC>: Match specific DMAC.

    The default value is 'Any'.

SMAC Match specific source MAC address or 'Any'. If a port is configured to match on DMAC/DIP, this field indicates the DMAC.
Tag Type Indicates tag type. Possible values are:
  • Any: Match tagged and untagged frames.
  • Untagged: Match untagged frames.
  • Tagged: Match tagged frames.
  • C-Tagged: Match C-tagged frames.
  • S-Tagged: Match S-tagged frames.

    The default value is 'Any'.

PCP Priority Code Point: Valid values of PCP are:
  • Specific (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
  • Range (0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 0-3, 4-7)
  • 'Any'.
DEI Drop Eligible Indicator: Valid value of DEI are 0, 1 or 'Any'.
Frame Type Indicates the type of frame. Possible values are:
  • Any: Match any frame type.
  • Ethernet: Match Ethertype frames.
  • LLC: Match (LLC) frames.
  • SNAP: Match (SNAP) frames.
  • IPv4: Match IPv4 frames.
  • IPv6: Match IPv6 frames.
Action Indicates the classification action taken on ingress frame if parameters configured are matched with the frame's content.

Possible actions are:

  • CoS (Class of Service): Classify Class of Service
  • DPL: Classify Drop Precedence Level
  • DSCP: Classify DSCP value
Modification Buttons You can modify each QCE (QoS Control Entry) in the table using the following buttons:

Add : Inserts a new QCE before the current row.

Edit : Edits the QCE.

Up : Moves the QCE up the list.

Down : Moves the QCE down the list.

Delete : Deletes the QCE.

Add : The lowest plus sign adds a new entry at the bottom of the QCE listings.

The QCE page includes the following fields:

Object Description
Port Members Check the checkbox button to include the port in the QCL entry. By default all ports are included.
Key parameters Key configuration is described as below:
  • DMAC: Destination MAC address: Possible values are 'Unicast', 'Multicast', 'Broadcast', 'Specific' (xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx) or 'Any'.
  • SMAC: Source MAC address: xx-xx-xx (24 MS bits OUI) xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx or 'Any'. If a port is configured to match on DMAC/DIP, this field is the Destination MAC address.
  • Tag: Value of Tag field can be 'Untagged', 'Tagged', 'C-Tagged', 'S-Tagged' or 'Any'.
  • VID: Valid value of VLAN ID can be any value in the range 1-4095 or 'Any'; user can enter either a specific value or a range of VIDs.
  • PCP: Valid value PCP are specific (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) or range (0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 0-3, 4-7) or 'Any'.
  • DEI Valid value of DEI can be '0', '1' or 'Any'.
Inner Tag Value of Inner Tag field can be 'Untagged', 'Tagged', 'C-Tagged', 'S-Tagged' or 'Any'.
Inner VID Valid value of Inner VLAN ID can be any value in the range 1-4095 or 'Any'; user can enter either a specific value or a range of VIDs.
Inner PCP Valid value of Inner PCP are specific (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) or range (0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 0-3, 4-7) or 'Any'.
Inner DEI Valid value of Inner DEI can be '0', '1' or 'Any'.
  • Frame Type: Frame Type can have any of the following values:
    • Any: Allow all types of frames.
    • EtherType: Ether Type Valid Ether Type can be 0x600-0xFFFF excluding 0x800(IPv4) and 0x86DD(IPv6) or 'Any'.
    • LLC: SSAP Address Valid SSAP(Source Service Access Point) can vary from 0x00 to 0xFF or 'Any'.
DSAP Address Valid DSAP(Destination Service Access Point) can vary from 0x00 to 0xFF or 'Any'.
Control Valid Control field can vary from 0x00 to 0xFF or 'Any'.
    • SNAP: PID Valid PID(a.k.a Ether Type) can be 0x0000-0xFFFF or 'Any'.

Source IP Specific Source IP address in value/mask format or 'Any'. IP and Mask are in the format x.y.z.w where x, y, z, and w are decimal numbers between 0 and 255. When Mask is converted to a 32-bit binary string and read from left to right, all bits following the first zero must also be zero. If a port is configured to match on DMAC/DIP, this field is the Destination IP address.
