Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 8.2.

Logical systems support introduced in JUNOS Release 9.3.

Description

For packets with high loss priority, discard the packets. The loss priority setting is implicit and is not configurable. Include this statement if you do not want the local router to forward packets that have high packet-loss priority.

For single-rate three-color policers, JUNOS Software assigns high loss priority to packets that exceed the committed information rate and the excess burst size.

For two-rate three-color policers, JUNOS Software assigns high loss priority to packets that exceed the peak information rate and the peak burst size.
