priority (Schedulers)


Hierarchy Level


Specify packet-scheduling priority value.


priority —It can be one of the following:

  • low—Scheduler has low priority.

  • strict-high—Scheduler has strictly high priority.


    On EX4400 switches, applying strict-high priority schedulers to queues 0 through 3 also applies strict-high priority to queues 8 through 11. Therefore, Juniper recommends applying strict-high priority schedulers only to queues 4 through 7.
