Defining Forwarding Classes

Figure 28 shows the initial Quick Configuration page for defining forwarding classes and assigning them to queues, and Table 121 describes the related fields. By assigning a forwarding class to a queue number, you affect the scheduling and marking of a packet as it transits a J Series or SRX Series device. For more information about forwarding classes and queues, see the JUNOS Enhanced Services Interfaces and Routing Configuration Guide.
