configure access-list vlan-acl-precedence

configure access-list vlan-acl-precedence [dedicated | shared]


Configures precedence mode for policy-file based ACLs that are applied on a VLAN.

Syntax Description

dedicated Allocates exclusive precedence for VLAN-based ACLs.
shared VLAN-based ACLs share the precedence with other ACLs.



Usage Guidelines

The following feature applies to only policy-file based ACLs that are applied on a VLAN. Use this command to switch between two VLAN-based ACL configuration modes. In the shared vlan-aclprecedence mode, VLAN-based ACL rules share the same precedence with other types of ACL rules and provides the same behavior as in the previous software releases. In the dedicated vlan-acl-precedence mode, VLAN-based ACL rules have different precedence compared to other types of ACL rules and this is the default mode. The dedicated mode yields improved installation performance for VLAN based access-lists but may affect hardware rule utilization in some configurations.

After configuring, you are prompted to reboot the system for the changes to take effect.


The following command allocates exclusive precedence for VLAN-based static ACL rules:

configure access-list vlan-acl-precedence dedicated
