Hierarchy Level


Define Fabric traffic priority. For M320, MX Series, T Series routers and EX Series switches only, specify the fabric priority with which a scheduler is associated.

For a scheduler that you associate with a fabric priority, you cannot include the buffer-size, transmit-rate, or priority statements at the [edit class-of-service schedulers scheduler-name] hierarchy level.

On EX Series switches, this statement is supported only on EX8200 standalone switches and EX8200 Virtual Chassis.
