qos queue-profile


qos queue-profile <NAME>

no qos queue-profile <NAME>


Creates a new QoS queue profile and switches to the config-queue context for the profile. If the specified QoS queue profile exists, this command switches to the config-queue context for the profile. A queue profile determines the priority with which queues are selected when transmitting packets on an interface.

A profile named factory-default is defined by default and is automatically applied. It cannot be edited or deleted. Use the command show qos queue-profile factory-default to view this profile. Do not use show running-configuration, as it will only display changes from the initial values.

Each profile has eight queues, numbered 0 to 7. The larger the queue number, the higher its priority during transmission scheduling.

The no form of this command removes the specified QoS profile when it is not applied.
