Configuring Color-Blind Egress Policers for Medium-Low PLP

 

If you use color-blind mode and want to configure an egress policer that marks packets to have medium-low PLP, you must configure a single-rate two-color policer at the [edit firewall policer policer-name] hierarchy level, because color-blind mode does not support medium-low priority. For example:

  1. Specify the name of the policer, the bandwidth limit in bits per second (bps) to control the traffic rate on an interface, and the maximum allowed burst size to control the amount of traffic bursting:
    [edit]

    user@switch# set firewall policer policer-name if-exceeding bandwidth-limit bytes burst-size-limit bytes
  2. Specify medium-low loss priority for matching packets:
    [edit]

    user@switch# set firewall policer policer-name then loss-priority medium-low;
  3. Apply the filter to a port, VLAN, or Layer 3 interface.
