QoS packet classification

To manage network traffic using QoS features, you must first classify (select) the packets you want to manage. You can use any combination of the following packet classification methods to select packets for QoS management:
  • Globally configured, switch-wide classification criteria

  • Classifier-based match criteria applied to inbound traffic on specific port and VLAN interfaces


Starting in software release K.14.01, global and classifier-based QoS policies support IPv6 and IPv4 packet classification.
