Configuring Color Mark Actions (SRC CLI)

You can configure color-mark actions to apply a TOS mark value based on the packet’s color. A color-mark can be applied to a packet after it exits a rate-limit hierarchy.

The type of action that you can create depends on the type policy rule. See Policy Information Model.

Use the following configuration statements to configure color actions:

policies group name list name rule name color-mark {green-mark green-mark;yellow-mark yellow-mark;red-mark red-mark;mask mask;description description;}

To configure a color mark action:

  1. From configuration mode, enter the color mark action configuration.
    [edit]user@host# edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark
  2. (Optional) Specify the green-mark value.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]user@host# set green-mark green-mark
  3. (Optional) Specify the yellow-mark value.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]user@host# set yellow-mark yellow-mark
  4. (Optional) Specify the red-mark value.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]user@host# set red-mark red-mark
  5. Specify the mask value to use when marking packets.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]user@host# set mask mask
  6. (Optional) Enter a description for the color mark action.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]user@host# set description description
  7. (Optional) Verify the color action mark configuration.
    [edit policies group junose_filter list in rule pr color-mark]
    user@host# show 
    description mark green packets;
    green-mark 100;
