Interaction with other software features

After applying a QoS policy to an interface, an error message appears if there are not sufficient hardware resources to support the policy. In this case, use the show resources command to verify the amount of resources that are currently in use and the resources available on the switch. QoS policies share the same hardware resources with other software features, such as mirroring policies, ACLs, virus throttling, the management VLAN, and so on.

Use the displayed information to decide whether to re-prioritize current resource usage by re-configuring or disabling software features to free the resources reserved for less important features.

For more information, see the ArubaOS-Switch Management and Configuration Guide for your switch.
