Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 7.4.


Configure the way preclassified packets are metered. In color-blind mode, the local router ignores the preclassification of packets and can assign a higher or lower packet-loss priority. For example, suppose an upstream router assigned medium-high packet-loss priority to a packet because the packet exceeded the committed information rate on the upstream router interface. The local router can change the packet-loss priority to low if the packet conforms to the configured committed information route on the local router interface.


If you omit the color-blind statement, the default behavior is color-aware mode.
