Defining CoS Forwarding Classes (J-Web Procedure)

You can define CoS forwarding classes on an EX Series switch using the J-Web interface. Assigning a forwarding class to a queue number affects the scheduling and marking of a packet as it transits a switch.

To define forwarding classes:

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

    Note: After you make changes to the configuration in this page, 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 for details about all commit options.

  2. Click one:
    • Add—Adds a forwarding class. Enter information into the forwarding class page as described in Table 1.
    • Edit—Modifies an existing forwarding class. Enter information into the forwarding class page as described in Table 1.
    • Delete—Deletes an existing forwarding class.

Forwarding Class Summary

Queue #

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 to a queue number.

To specify an internal queue number, select an integer from 0 through 7, appropriate for 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.
