  • 1.  Class of Service Classifier loss-priority

    Posted 05-04-2024 09:14


    I am working on CoS and I do not understand well what does loss-priority do exactly? What is the relation between increasement from low priority towards high priority and packet loss desired? For example if I set high for the classifier does it mean "ok, this class can be dropped not important" or means "this class must not be dropped"?

    You are correct the designations from low to high indicate where dropped traffic should occur first at times of contention.

    This overview gives a good set of descriptions for the overall settings that get configured to apply CoS overall.
