Options for assigning priority

Priority control options for packets carrying a specified VLAN-ID include:
  • 802.1p priority

  • DSCP policy: Assigning a new DSCP and 802.1p priority

(For operation when other QoS classifiers apply to the same traffic, see Classifiers for prioritizing outbound packets.)


QoS with VID priority applies to static VLANs only, and applying QoS to dynamic VLANs created by GVRP operation is not supported. A VLAN must exist while a subject of a QoS configuration, and eliminating a VLAN from the switch causes the switch to clear any QoS features configured for that VID.
