Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Description

For ATM2 IQ interfaces only, define the early packet discard (EPD) threshold on a VC. The EPD threshold is a limit on the number of transmit packets that can be queued. Packets that exceed the limit are discarded. For interfaces configured in trunk mode, you can also configure dual EPD thresholds depending on the packet loss priorities (PLPs). For more information, see Configuring Two EPD Thresholds per Queue.

Default

Approximately 1 percent of the available cell buffers. If shaping is enabled, the default EPD threshold is proportional to the shaping rate according to the following formula:

default epd-threshold = number of buffers * shaping rate / line rate

The minimum EPD threshold value is 48 cells. If the default EPD threshold formula results in an EPD threshold of less than 48 cells, the result will be ignored, and the minimum value of 48 cells will be used.

Options

cells—Maximum number of cells.

Range: For 1-port and 2-port OC12 interfaces, 48 through 425,984 cells

Required Privilege Level
