Hierarchy Level


Allow queue selection for traffic generated by the Routing Engine (host). The selected queue must be configured properly. You can also configure specific DSCP code point bits for the type of service (ToS) field of the generated packets. This configuration does not affect transit packets or incoming packets. This is a global configuration that only affects packets originating on the Routing Engine. If you do not configure an output queue for host outbound traffic, the switch uses the default queue mapping.


forwarding-class class-name—Set the forwarding class name for outbound host traffic (traffic generated by the Routing Engine).

dscp-code-point code-point—Set the six-bit DSCP code point value in the type of service (ToS) field of the packet generated by the Routing Engine (host).

Required Privilege Level
