Hierarchy Level


Bind a range of VLAN IDs to a logical interface.


number—The first number is the lowest VLAN ID in the range the second number is the highest VLAN ID in the range.

  • Range: 1 through 4094


Configuring vlan-id-range with the entire vlan-id range is an unnecessary waste of system resources and is not best practice. It should be used only when a subset of VLAN IDs (not the entire range) needs to be associated with a logical interface. If you specify the entire range (1-4094), it has the same result as not specifying a range; however, it consumes PFE resources such as VLAN lookup tables entries, and so on.

The following examples illustrate this further:

  1. Inefficient

  2. Best Practice

VLAN ID 0 is reserved for tagging the priority of frames.
