    Configuring CoS Translation Table (NSM Procedure)

    On some PICs, the behavior aggregate (BA) translation tables are included for every logical interface (unit) protocol family configured on the logical interface. The proper default translation table is active even if you do not include any explicit translation tables. On M40e, M120, M320, and T Series routers with Enhanced IQ (IQE) PICs, or on any system with IQ2 or Enhanced IQ2 (IQ2E) PICs, you can replace the type-of-service (ToS) bit value on the incoming packet header on a logical interface with a user-defined value. The new ToS value is used for all class-of-service (CoS) processing and is applied before any other CoS or firewall treatment of the packet. The PIC uses the translation-table statement to determine the new ToS bit values. You can configure a physical interface (port) or logical interface (unit) with up to three translation tables. The number of frame relay data-link connection identifiers (DLCIs) (units) that you can configure on each PIC varies based on the number and type of BA classification tables configured on the interfaces.

    To configure CoS Translation Table in NSM:

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