Applying Scheduler Maps Overview

Physical interfaces (for example, t3-0/0/0, t3-0/0/0:0, and ge-0/0/0) support scheduling with any encapsulation type pertinent to that physical interface. For a single port, you cannot apply scheduling to the physical interface if you have applied scheduling to one or more of the associated logical interfaces.

Logical interfaces (for example, t3-0/0/0 unit 0 and ge-0/0/0 unit 0) support scheduling on data link connection identifiers (DLCIs) or VLANs only.

In the Junos OS implementation, the term logical interfaces generally refers to interfaces you configure by including the unit statement at the [edit interfaces interface-name] hierarchy level. Logical interfaces have the .logical descriptor at the end of the interface name, as in ge-0/0/0.1 or t1-0/0/0:0.1, where the logical unit number is 1.

Although channelized interfaces are generally thought of as logical or virtual, the Junos OS sees T3, T1, and NxDS0 interfaces within a channelized IQ PIC as physical interfaces. For example, both t3-0/0/0 and t3-0/0/0:1 are treated as physical interfaces by the Junos OS. In contrast, t3-0/0/0.2 and t3-0/0/0:1.2 are considered logical interfaces because they have the .2 at the end of the interface names.

Within the [edit class-of-service] hierarchy level, you cannot use the .logical descriptor when you assign properties to logical interfaces. Instead, you must include the unit statement in the configuration. For example:
