Hierarchy Level


On MX Series, M Series, and T Series routers with IQ2E PIC, enables the use of hierarchical schedulers.


To enable hierarchical scheduling on MX80 and MX104 routers, configure the hierarchical-scheduler statement at each member physical interface level of a particular aggregated Ethernet interface as well as at that aggregated Ethernet interface level. On other routing platforms, it is enough if you include this statement at the aggregated Ethernet interface level.


If you do not include this statement, the interfaces on the MX Series router cannot use hierarchical interfaces.
