Classifier-based service policies are designed to work with existing globally configured switch-wide and port-wide settings by allowing you to select a subset of:
  • Traffic sent to or from certain ports

  • VLAN traffic

Once the traffic is selected, you can further manage it.

Classifier-based service policies take precedence over, and may override, globally configured settings. These policies provide greater control for managing network traffic. Using multiple match criteria, you can finely select and define the classes of traffic that you want to manage. You can then use policy actions to determine how the selected traffic is handled.

Classes can be based on IPv4 or IPv6 addresses (which you specify in the policy).
