Hierarchy Level


Configure the way preclassified packets are metered. In color-blind mode, the switch ignores any preclassification of packets and can assign a higher or lower packet loss priority (PLP). For example, suppose an upstream device assigns medium-high PLP to a packet because the packet exceeded the CIR on the upstream device. The switch can change the PLP to low if the packet conforms to the CIR of the appropriate interface.


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