Where to go from here

Classifier-based service policies are designed to work with your existing globally-configured software settings. While existing software features allow you to globally manage all network traffic on a switch or port, classifier-based service policies allow you to zoom in on subsets of network traffic to further manage it on a per-port or per-VLAN basis.

You can use the match criteria described in this chapter across software features to configure classes of traffic for use in feature-specific service policies.

After you decide on the IPv4 and IPv6 network traffic you want to manage, see the ArubaOS-Switch Management and Configuration Guide for more information about how to configure and use classifier-based quality-of-service and mirroring policies.
