Defining CoS Forwarding Classes (J-Web Procedure)

 Note

This topic applies only to the J-Web Application package.

J-Web Application package Release 14.1X53-A2 does not support Class of Service (CoS) on EX4600 switches.

You can define CoS forwarding classes on an EX Series switch using the J-Web interface. Assigning a forwarding class to a queue number affects the scheduling and marking of a packet as it transits a switch.

To define forwarding classes:

  1. Select Configure > Class of Service > Forwarding Classes. Note

    After you make changes to the configuration on this page, you must commit the changes immediately for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes (J-Web Procedure) for details about all commit options.

  2. Select one of the following options:
    • Add—Adds a forwarding class. Enter information into the forwarding class page as described in Table 1.

    • Edit—Modifies an existing forwarding class. Enter information into the forwarding class page as described in Table 1.

    • Delete—Deletes an existing forwarding class.

Forwarding Class Summary

Queue #

Specifies the internal queue numbers to which forwarding classes are assigned.

By default, if a packet is not classified, it is assigned to the class associated with queue 0. You can have more than one forwarding class to a queue number.

To specify an internal queue number, select an integer from 0 through 11, appropriate for your platform as follows:

Note: For EX3400 and EX4300 switches, to specify an internal queue number, select an integer from 0 through 11.

Note: For EX2300 and EX2300-C switches, a maximum of eight egress queues are supported per port. To specify an internal queue number select an integer from 0 through 7.

Forwarding Class Name

Specifies the forwarding class names assigned to specific internal queue numbers.

By default, four forwarding classes are assigned to queue numbers 0 (best-effort), 1 (assured-forwarding), 5 (expedited-forwarding), and 7 (network-connect).

Note: For EX4300 switches, by default the forwarding classes are assigned to queue numbers 0 (best-effort), 1(expedited -forwarding), 2 (assured-forwarding), 3 (network-connect), 8 (mcast-be), 9 (mcast-ef), 10 (mcast-af), and 11 (mcast-nc).

Type the name—for example, be-class.
