Configuring Basic BoD Policies

You can create policies with the Policies, Services, and Subscribers CLI or the Policies, Services, and Subscribers subtasks in the C-Web interface.

To configure a basic BoD policy:

  1. Create a policy group and associated policy rules.

    Typically the policy rules include Junos OS schedulers, Junos OS policers, Junos OS filters, or JunosE filters that specify a traffic classification, and basic rules that define best-effort forwarding and drop behavior.

  2. Include parameters in the classify-traffic conditions of the policer. Use parameter names from table Parameters for BoD Services for Enterprise Manager Portal in Parameter Values Used by BoD Services.
  3. Specify a precedence for the policy rules.

    Structure the precedence for policies to ensure that policy rules for Junos OS schedulers and Junos OS policers have a higher precedence, and therefore a lower number, than default policy rules. If the configuration includes BoD services, the policies to support BoD services should have a higher precedence, indicated by a lower number.

For a sample basic BoD policy, see policyGroupName=basicBod, ou=entjunos, o=Policies, o=umc in the sample data.
