Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 17.2R1 for a Junos Fusion Provider Edge.

Description

Set the power priority for individual interfaces when there is insufficient power for all PoE interfaces. If the switch needs to shut down powered devices because PoE demand exceeds the PoE budget, low-priority devices are shut down before high-priority devices. Among interfaces that have the same assigned priority, priority is determined by port number, with lower-numbered ports having higher priority.

Default

low

Options

high—Specifies that this interface is to be treated as high-priority in terms of power allocation. If the switch needs to shut down powered devices because PoE demand exceeds the PoE budget, power is not shut down on this interface until it has been shut down on all the low-priority interfaces.

low—Specifies that this interface is to be treated as low-priority in terms of power allocation. If the switch needs to shut down powered devices because PoE demand exceeds the PoE budget, power is shut down on this interface before it is shut down on high-priority interfaces.
