Defining Forwarding Classes

Figure 22 shows the initial configuration page for defining forwarding classes and assigning them to queues, and Table 30 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 routing platform.

To define forwarding classes in the J-Web interface:

  1. Select Configure > Class of Service > Forwarding Classes.

    Note: After you make changes to the configuration in this window, you must commit the changes immediately for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes (J-Web Procedure) for details about all commit options.

  2. Click one of the following:

Your Action

Forwarding Class Summary

Queue number

Specifies the internal queue numbers to which forwarding classes are assigned.

By default, if a packet is not classified, it is assigned to the class associated with queue 0. You can have more than one forwarding class assigned to a queue number.

To specify an internal queue number, select an integer from 0 through 7, as supported by your platform.

Forwarding class name

Specifies the forwarding class names assigned to specific internal queue numbers.

By default, four forwarding classes are assigned to queue numbers 0 (best-effort), 1 (assured-forwarding), 5 (expedited-forwarding), and 7 (network-connect).

Type the name; for example, be-class.

Queue characteristics

Specifies the characteristics of the queue.
