NEXUS 7000 QoS

Posted on 2013-12-19

I am trying to copy a Qos config from a nexus 5548 to a Nexus 7000.    All was going well until I tried to copy the following:

class-map type queuing class-fcoe
  match qos-group 1
class-map type queuing class-all-flood
  match qos-group 2

For some reason when I use the command
#class-map type

I do not get the option to use "queuing".   In fact the only option is "qos".

Can you post the output from the session? It's a valid command.

Actually I have since learned that the #class map queueing command can only be employed within the Admin VDC of the Nexus and is very limited.   Effectively we are talking about two different hardware platforms hence they do business differently . there a quick way to translate between the two?

Oh yeah. The queuing class map is directly affecting the hardware queues so it can only be done from VDC 1.  I didn't realize that you were on a non-default VDC.

As for "translating between the two", I'm not sure I follow you.

Just looking for a quick way to convert the code from the nexus 5548 so that it will work on the me working any harder than I have to.

Oh.  Other than issuing the queuing commands from VDC 1, everything else should be copy/paste.

And if it wasn't hard, anybody could do it and we wouldn't be making the "big bucks", right? ;-)
