    Configuring CoS Interfaces (NSM Procedure)

    An interface is configured for optimal performance in a high-traffic network. This feature enables you to configure interface-specific CoS properties for incoming packets.

    To configure CoS interfaces in NSM:

    1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device for which you want to configure CoS interfaces.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Class of Service.
    4. Select Interfaces.
    5. Add or modify the interfaces as specified in Table 1.
    6. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.

    Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
