policy qos-scheduler—Configure a QoS scheduler for a forwarding class (on vEdge routers only).
A scheduler can apply to unicast and multicast traffic.

policy qos-scheduler scheduler-name bandwidth-percent percentage buffer-percent percentage class class-name drops (red-drop | tail-drop) scheduling (llq | wrr)
- Scheduler Name
Name of the QoS scheduler for a forwarding class. It can be a text string from 1 through 32 characters long.
- Bandwidth Percentage
- bandwidth-percent percentage
Percentage of the interface's bandwidth to allocate to the forwarding class. The sum of the bandwidth on all forwarding classes on an interface should not exceed 100 percent.
- Buffer Percentage
- buffer-percent percentage
Percentage of the interface's buffering capacity to allocate to the forwarding class. The sum of the buffering capacity of all forwarding classes on an interface should not exceed 100 percent.
- class class-name
Name of the forwarding class. class-name can be a text string from 1 through 32 characters long. The common class names correspond to the per-hop behaviors AF (assured forwarding), BE (best effort), and EF (expedited forwarding).
- Packet Drops
- drops (red-drop | tail-drop)
Method to use to drop packets that exceed the bandwidth or buffer percentage. Packets can be dropped either randomly (red-drop) or from the end of the queue (tail-drop). If you configure low-latency queuing (scheduling llq), you cannot configure the red-drop drop mechanism. If you attempt to configure both mechanisms, an error message is displayed when you try to validate the configuration, and the commit operation does not continue.
- Queue Scheduling
- scheduling (llq | wrr)
Algorithm to use to schedule interface queues. It can be either low-latency queuing (llq) or weighted round-robin (wrr). If you use LLQ, you cannot configure RED packet drops.
Create a QoS scheduler and QoS map, and apply it to an interface in VPN 1:
vEdge(config)# show config policy policy qos-scheduler af1 class af1 bandwidth-percent 20 buffer-percent 20 drops red-drop ! qos-map test-qos-map qos-scheduler af1 ! ! vEdge(config)# show config vpn 1 vpn 1 interface ge0/0 qos-map test-qos-map ! !
Command introduced in Viptela Software Release 14.1.
Starting in Release 16.2.3, if you attempt to configure LLQ and red drops, an error message is displayed when you try to validate the configuration, and the commit operation does not continue.
In Release 16.3, add support for multicast traffic.
