Fiber Channel Over Ethernet (FCoE)
Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI)
When you configure a custom application, you define a priority number that applies to traffic related to that application. DCBX advertises this priority to end stations in an application TLV. End stations that support this feature use the priority number for communications with the switch. The priority number maps to an 802.1p value, which determines which QoS profile in the switch manages the application traffic.
The software supports a maximum of eight application configurations.
