Queue profile

A queue profile defines the queues that are associated with an interface to control the transmission of packets. Each profile has eight queues, numbered 0 to 7. The larger the queue number, the higher its priority during transmission scheduling. Packets are assigned to a queue based on their local priority value.

A queue profile must be configured on every interface at all times.

The switch is automatically provisioned with an initial queue profile named default, which assigns each local priority to the queue of the same number. This will work in most situations. Use the command show qos queue-profile default to view the product default queue profile. Do not use show running-configuration as it will only display changes from the initial values.

The following diagram shows the commands that are used to configure a queue profile.
